With all of the new construction happening in Godfrey, the village has been planning for its future. Over the past several years, a comprehensive plan has been put together, progress has been made in getting the Crosstown Road project moving, and the Community Planning, Development and Infrastructure Committee has been meeting to find ways to sell the "Godfrey brand" to potential retailers looking at establishing a presence in town.

Committee Chairman Tom Long says the group has been meeting with a single purpose in mind.

Long comments

He says the new B-5 zoning district has been put into place, and TIF and Business District will soon be established, and sewer extension plans are also in the works.
