Keokuk’s Planning and Zoning Commission opposes a proposed business expansion.
Lexington Square needs a special use permit from the city to add a roughly 10,000 square foot addition to its complex.
The goal is to provide more private rooms for residents of the nursing home on Keokuk’s north side.
Many residents who live near the complex oppose the expansion because proposed increases in water drainage, traffic, noise, and overhead lights.
The planning commission is recommending the city’s Board of Adjustment NOT issue the special use permit.
