Development could be coming for the Airport South District in Moline.
City leaders will meet Wednesday to discuss the future of the area south of the Quad Cities International Airport.
"For the last 15 years the city has been extending sewer and water and plans for roads but it can only go so far," says Jeff Anderson, Moline City Planner. "So this is kind of the next step forward getting beyond what's already been done."
The city's Plan Commission will meet tonight to discuss the future of the district that stretches from 78th Avenue to 120th Avenue between Knoxville Road and 104th Street.
The meeting will lay the framework for future expansion. No word on any specific companies that could come in. City leaders tell us with the area's convenient location; it's an incredible opportunity to develop.
"When you start to match the transportation of I-280 and the highways around there," Anderson adds. "It really suggest a great area for development yet to be tapped."
City leaders say the area is prime for anything from commercial development, to technology or even residential.
"A variety of uses but hopefully planned in a way that really works well and adds value to the overall area," says Anderson.
City leaders say there's no timeline for development and that it will all depend on when something wants to move in.
Anyone can attend the meeting which takes place at Moline City Hall at 4 p.m.
