City Seeks Citizen Feedback on Galloway Village

Stakeholders who are interested in contributing to the future plan for Galloway Village will have their chance to sound off to city officials.

The first of three public meetings to discuss the future of Galloway/Lone Pine will take place on Thursday, March 21, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at All Saints Anglican Church, 2751 E. Galloway in Springfield.

Comments from the meeting will be posted on the city’s website along with comments from meetings planned for spring and summer. The city’s Planning and Development staff will use those comments to present a late summer report to City Council with recommendations for the area.

“We have a great group of folks who are interested in seeing all the possibilities for Galloway while preserving the village’s history and unique character and charm,” Senior Planner Olivia Hough said in a statement. “Along with people who have chosen to live or do business in Galloway in recent years, we have families who have lived there for generations, starting at the turn of the century when Galloway was a company town operated by the quarry. We look forward to hearing all of the input from this wonderful varied group.”

Zone 4 Councilman Matthew Simpson requested an administrative delay for rezoning and lot combinations in the Lone Pine area until city staff gathered recommendations from stakeholder input. The moratorium expires on August 2, 2019.
