Fulton Alderman Tom Kenyon hosts a meeting tonight to allow residents to ask questions about the Phillips St. housing project.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers of Fulton City Hall.

Officials of the Fulton Community Development Agency and Fulton Community Revitalization Corporation will be on hand to answer questions and to outline the project.

The city will use $360,000 to build four single-family homes on an empty lot on Phillips St. that used to house a school, and to hook those homes into the city’s water and sewer systems.

The city hopes to build four more homes on the lot next year.

The city and school district traded land to make the project happen.  The district gave up the Phillips St. land in exchange for a piece of land along the high school that is used for parking.
