Galesburg aldermen voted 7-0 with one abstention to rezone land at North Seminary Street and Highway 34 to allow for construction of a hotel, some retail space, and owner-occupied duplexes. However, developer Todd Raufeisen must still clear some hurdles before construction can begin.

Mayor Sal Garza pointed out the rezoning of the land is the only thing that was approved.

“At this stage, we weren’t doing the specific review of all the facilities, the locations of them and all of that,” Garza said.
