Timothy's House of Hope, Costco to Davenport, Putnam photo event

DAVENPORT, Iowa - Stories we're following at Local 4 News:

 

Zoning problems forced a program that feeds the homeless in Davenport to close its doors. The building that's home to Timothy's House of Hope is zoned as a church but not an outreach program. The program's founder will now need to present a plan to the zoning board for approval. Mayra Cordova reports.  

 

Davenport could soon get a Costco near the Elmore corridor. There are no specific design plans from the company yet, but Costco has already purchased land. The city would have to re-zone the land from agricultural to commercial. So far, no timeline has been released. A public meeting is set for May 4. Details.  

 

You can help the Putnam Museum celebrate 150 years with its second free photo event starting today. You can sign up for a free professional photo to add to the Putnam's collection, and take a copy home too. The event runs today through Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. For info, click here.
