Monthly IRLA meeting cancelled

FOREST PARK — The February meeting of Forest Park/Fort Gillem Implementation Local Redevelopment Authority has been canceled, officials said.

Executive Director Fred Bryant issued a release Thursday night that today’s 6 p.m. meeting won’t happen as scheduled.

The Authority was formed to oversee and guide the acquisition of the former Army base, Fort Gillem, by the city of Forest Park. City leaders plan to develop the property into a commercial and industrial district.

At least three companies with the potential to provide more than 100 jobs collectively have expressed an interest in locating to Gillem.

There is no information on the March meeting.
