Tuesday night Moline committee of the whole voted to move forward with the latest step in the River Bend Commons development project.

The decision means council members will make an official vote at their meeting next week to sell land to the developers.

River Bend Commons is an $80 million dollar private investment to create housing for 240 students and 20,000 square feet of retail space— possibly for a restaurant, coffee shop or cell phone store.

"It's great property, it's right on the river, it's next to Western and adjacent to downtown Moline," said Planning and Development Director Ray Forsythe. "So really it's continuing helping support the campus and then growing our downtown further east."

Construction equipment just arrived on site for the project Monday.  River Bend Commons is expected to be done by fall 2014.

Meantime, City Planner Jeff Anderson made a presentation on developing land south of Quad City International Airport for housing and businesses.  Anderson said he expects to have council vote on adding the newly detailed plan to the city's overall plan at next week's council meeting.

Anderson said there's no timeline on that project, but development is already happening near the airport with new hotels.
