The Sioux Center City Council approved the sale of city land for a new 20-lot residential addition in northern Sioux Center.
“With 20-30 homes being built each year in town, efforts to provide residential properties are ongoing,” said Sioux Center Economic Development Director Dennis Dokter. “When people move to our community, we want to have options for them, and we feel this development will offer a good option and complement the other residential developments already in place.”
The 7.36 acres the city is selling to Sioux Center Land Development is just east of the new Interstates campus and has been called the County View North Addition.
It will include a short segment of street running north/south with four lots and a cul-de-sac running east/west with 16 lots, according to the plat of the area, which was also approved by the city council. The property has also been rezoned from agriculture to single-family residential.
Sioux Center Land Development plans to begin earthwork and infrastructure this spring or summer with the first lots available in mid-fall. The development group anticipates building a few spec homes annually and making lots available on the market.
This addition is near the existing Country View area, in which Sioux Center Land Development has constructed about 95 new homes, emphasizing affordable housing, with the last available house selling this past year.
