Public Information Meeting on Improvement of a Shared Use Path along S. Lake Storey and US 150

The City of Galesburg will hold a Public Information Meeting concerning the proposed improvement of a Shared Use Path along S. Lake Storey Road and US 150 from the existing path on the north side of Lake Storey to Carl Sandburg College.  The public information meeting will be held at Galesburg City Hall at 55 W. Tompkins St., Galesburg, IL, on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 from 4:00 – 6:00 PM.  The meeting will be conducted in an open house format.  All persons interested in this project are invited to attend this meeting.  Persons with a disability planning to attend this meeting should contact the person listed in this Notice by July 29, 2022 to make arrangements for participating.  The contact may be by telephone, in writing, by fax or by telecommunications device for the deaf (TTY).

This meeting is a follow up to a public information meeting that was held regarding the same project in August 2019.  This second meeting is being held to present revised project limits.  The revised limits include extending the path north towards US 150 to connect to the existing path on the north side of Lake Storey.

The meeting will be conducted on an informal basis.  Representatives of the City of Galesburg and Hutchison Engineering will be available from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  Representatives will answer individual questions and record comments offered by those in attendance.  Verbatim comments will not be recorded.  The City of Galesburg representatives will address topics such as the need for the project, the design alternatives under consideration, right-of-way acquisition, and the tentative construction schedule.  Engineering analysis with drawings, maps, and aerial photography will be available for inspection and viewing during the entire time.  The same material will be made available for review and inspection on the City of Galesburg’s website.
