"..... This law should be of special concern to public officials who are in charge of producing and maintaining public records. Clerks, recorders, finance workers, comptrollers and Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA officers are some of the primary caretakers of public records and public records requests." This new law should spell big trouble for the Quincy School District. Anybody know what's…

You don't get indicted on nothing. There must be some pretty strong evidence. As far as him not being put out of general population is a bunch of crap. He shouldn't get special treatment just cause he worked in states attorney office at one time. He is being held for criminal charges and some pretty serious ones at that. The court systems are corrupt anyways.

Plan Commission approves zoning changes for Cathedral of Worship

2 years, 9 months ago by Jamie Busen, QuincyJournal.com and WTAD News

Subdivision and church in the works on South 36th

The Quincy Plan Commission in brief session Tuesday night supported several requests.

The Commission voted for a zoning change and subdivision approval for an area west of South 36th Street and north of the Chapel Valley subdivision. Bishop E.L. Warren, with The Cathedral of Worship, asked for a zoning change to single-family residential from rural for a 12.55 acre, L-shaped parcel. The remaining acreage of the parcel doesn't need a zoning change. They've plans to build a worship center in a later phase of development.

Warren has been planning for the past two years for this 27-lot subdivision, to be known as Kingdom Estates.

According to paperwork prepared by the City's Planning and Development staff, the lots will be arranged along a street extending west from South 36th Street, then curving to the south and ending in a cul-de-sac.

Warren, who had numerous chairs in Council chambers filled in support of him, did not address the Commission himself. Tony Crane with Architechnics told the members that Warren held a neighborhood meeting in September where he talked with area residents about the plan. It was attended by about 60 people, Crane said. No one spoke against his requests. The Commission's recommendations will go before the City Council Monday night for final action.

Former Mayor Chuck Scholz spoke on the record in support of Warren.

He said Warren and his Church have done positive things for the community and his ministry was important.

"I have full confidence this will be a high-quality development and I urge the Commission to grant the petitioner's requests," he said.

Commissioners also gave their support to a request from Blessing Hospital. Officials want to build a 160-stall parking lot that would be located at the northwest corner of North 11th and College Ave. and the southwest corner of North 11th and Elm.

They also approved a special permit to Jerry and Julie Smith, who will be moving their Advantage termite and pest control business from the 900 block of Maine to 634 South 11th St.
