John Deere Road toward the east side has experienced growth in businesses. Two car dealerships have recently located there, and Quad Citians say they've noticed the growth and welcome it. That's why officials hope this will open the opportunity for more homes built in that area.
Ray Forsythe, Moline Planning and Development Director, says, "We're hoping to start to see the growth in residential areas by building up the retail."
Forsythe says we can expect to see more businesses coming to the area later this year.
