Norfolk City leaders consider new restaurant proposal
A group of Norfolk, Nebraska city officials will meet Monday with economic development efforts on their minds. Both the Norfolk City Council and the Community Development Agency will be talking about a development that will bring more jobs and an a new restaurant to town. The first meeting, at 5pm Monday, is with the Norfolk Community Development Agency, and they have just one agenda item. They will be voting on a resolution that would allow for a redevelopment plan from Sioux City-based Big Game LLC to redevelop an area near one of the busiest intersections in town. They are proposing to develop the southeast corner of the Highways 81 and 275 junction by building a 4,813 square foot Perkins Restaurant. If approved, the development would bring 115 new jobs. If the community development agency okay's the resolution, the proposal will then go to the Norfolk City Council just 30 minutes later.
The city council meeting will include a public hearing on the proposal and the council will also vote on the resolution. Also on the agenda for the council meeting Monday night is the swearing in of newly elected members which include re-elected Norfolk Mayor Sue Fuchtman, three new council members and one incumbent who was re-elected.In addition, the council will select a new council president.
