A City Council subcommittee decision Thursday night has set the stage for a full council discussion regarding a Somerville developer's plan to construct a $45 million development in downtown Salem, the Salem News is reporting.
The company, RCG, is hoping to building a five-to-six story building on the block surrounded by Washington and Dodge streets with space for retail, offices, housing and a hotel.
At Thursday's meeting, subcommittee members voted to declare the lot a surplus, which means the property can now be sold if City Council members give the project a green light, according to the Salem News article.
City Council members are expected to discuss the issue at their next meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. on Feb. 28.
