SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council will consider a resolution authorizing an agreement with developer Marc Moen for the private redevelopment of 118 E. College St.

Moen is interested in allowing the FilmScene cinema, a nonprofit organization, to occupy a portion of the ground floor of the former Vito's building, according to city documents.

This, according to the proposal, is consistent with the council's goal of developing retail and office use spaces downtown in place of downtown bars.

According to an Iowa Strategic Assessment done by Downtown Iowa City in December 2011, local consumers ranked "Movie Theater" as their top choice for what is most desired downtown.

The councilors will consider the resolution during their next meeting, June 19.
