New Commercial Area Planned in Sioux Center

Drawn plat of land

Zoning and plat updates were approved for a 10-acre property in northern Sioux Center, preparing the site for new commercial development. Formerly farmland, the City-owned property is being prepared to be the home for commercial and retail businesses. 

“This location will provide a great opportunity to expand our already thriving retail footprint,” said Sioux Center Development Director Dennis Dokter. “It is important to us to provide retail growth opportunities along the entire Highway 75 corridor.”

The plat, accepted by the Sioux Center City Council on Monday, includes three lots, ranging from about 2-3 acres, zoned for General Commercial use. The plat also includes adding 11th Street NW coming off of Highway 75, creating an intersection with 1st Ave. NW. The property was rezoned from Highway Commercial to General Commercial, allowing for smaller setbacks and more of a downtown feel.

The accepted plat is shaped by a concept created in 2020 when City staff worked with planning and design firm Confluence to create a vision for this property, as well as a few other potential commercial sites. The goal for that planning was to be prepared to use and market this property in alignment with the community’s comprehensive plan as a new commercial opportunity. The concept created during that planning suggested this property be used for sales and services or retail sales.

“During the planning process, we had significant interest in retail expansion,” Dokter said. “This area is getting the attention of developers, and we plan to have development taking place in 2023.”
