J'lem local committee approves 942 units in Gilo

The Jerusalem Local Building and Planning Committee on Monday approved a plan for 942 housing units in the neighborhood of Gilo.
The neighborhood is located beyond the Green Line, and therefore any building announcements have been considered controversial.
According to some reports, the plan will encompass 88,000 square meters, expanding Gilo to the east and south. It also includes zoning for an additional 300 possible units in the future.
