Village Trying To Attract Civic Center

Posted by wlpo on May 13, 2009

Utica Mayor Fred Esmond says he is in talks with a developer from St. Louis to build a civic center in the village. The village recently annexed over 300 acres into the village just north of Love’s Travel Stop.  Developer Bill Galberg owns the land and Esmond says he’s open to building a civic center to house concerts, sports and trade shows. 

Esmond says he approached Galberg about the idea and now just has to prove to him that people will use the civic center enough to make it worth it.
