PEORIA -- A revised plan for an apartment complex at Junction City has been approved today by Peoria's Zoning Board.
The new plan will include a 25-unit building with residences only on the second and third floors.
This is smaller than the original plan that was previously denied by the zoning board in September.
Both sides share their opinions.
Attorney for Junction City Tom Leiter said, "The project has been reduced in size eliminating all residential uses on the first floor so that it conforms now to permitted uses of the C-2 zoning district."
A neighbor of Junction City David Long said, "We still remember the hotel was all residential and they say apartments like this will not bring down values when in reality they do."
Ana-Maria Neumiller is also a neighbor. She said, "I do not think the location for the apartments that Junction City wants to build is a good location for those apartments. I don't think it's going to be an attractive place for young professionals."
The vote was approved 5 to 1.
It will now go before city council on Nov. 27.
