Council has called a voluntary public hearing for Thursday, April 28, 2022 to discuss the purchase of land by the city. The meeting will be held at 7:15 PM in council chambers, preceding the council meeting.
Council invites Macedonia residents to share their thoughts on the potential purchase of the land, which is situated on the corner of Valley View and Park Avenue. The objective of the purchase would be to allow the city to possibly further the development of the area into a “downtown”-like retail area.
The ordinance for the purchase, which is currently in its first reading, is below. If you cannot attend this public hearing but would like to share your thoughts, please send an email to the council clerk Jon Hoover at email@example.com
