Residential Growth Prompts Proposed Sale of Land

Homes in residential development area

Demand for residential properties in the community has led the Sioux Center City Council to consider selling land for a new residential addition.

Last week, the council set a public hearing to consider selling land to Sioux Center Land Development, which would like to create a 20-lot residential addition in the Country View area in northern Sioux Center.

“The mission of Country View goes back to around 2000, when Sioux Center Land Development saw that, to grow industry in Sioux Center, we need places for people to live, and they set out to provide an area that offered affordable new housing,” said Sioux Center Economic Development Director Dennis Dokter. “Now Sioux Center Land Development has approached the city because they want to continue that mission today.”

Sioux Center Land Development has proposed purchasing about 7 acres of land from the city, just east of the new Interstates campus, to create Country View North Addition. Sioux Center Land Development has constructed about 95 new homes in the Country View area, with the last available house selling in 2018.

“They want to keep fulfilling that mission of providing affordable new housing and to keep attracting workforce to Sioux Center,” Dokter said. “A good portion of these homes are sold to people moving in from outside the community.”

The City Council will hold a public hearing at the May 6 council meeting which starts at 3:30 p.m. before deciding whether to approve the sale to Sioux Center Land Development.

If Sioux Center Land Development purchases the land, they plan to have earthwork and infrastructure work begin this spring or summer with the first lots available in mid fall. The development group plans to build a few spec homes annually to sell as well as make the lots available on the market.
