Salem Planning Commission To Hold Hearing On Armory Building

The Salem Planning Commission Tuesday night will discuss proposed revisions to the city's zoning code in regard to the Salem National Guard Armory property on North College Street.  

The State of Illinois has now deeded the vacant property to the City of Salem.  The city earlier sought proposals for use of the building and received one acceptable proposal from U.S. Sonet to convert the building into their offices while making some areas of the building available for public use. 

Salem City Clerk and Assistant to the City Manager Bev West says the property is currently zoned RS-2 Residential.  She expects discussion to center around adding very specific special uses by very specific businesses.  West says the meeting Tuesday night is for discussion only, with a possible recommendation being developed for a zoning code change that would be brought later for a public hearing.  City Council approval will also be needed for any zoning code change.  U.S. Sonet would then have to apply for a special use permit before the planning commission.   

The meeting will be held at seven Tuesday night at Salem City Hall.
