City officials in Rochelle last night approved a couple of proposals dealing with future industries in the Hub City.
They 1st gave the ok involving the Lee County Enterprize Zone being extended by 92 acres. Project "Golden Prairie" is expected to be part of this area as it's a 350,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The company will have parts that will be used by Nippon Sharyo involving their rail cars.
The final plat was also approved for "Golden Prairie" on land north of the intersection of Steward and Caron Roads. Gredco Director Jason Anderson said that the company is still working on a couple of issues with the state before they make any announcements about coming to Rochelle.
The conditional special use permit was given to the 1st National Bank and Trust Company for their antenna while the property at 715 South Main street was divided into 2 lots.
Absent from last night's meeting were councilmen Dennis Berg, Dave Eckhardt, and Bil Hayes.
