Michael Koch, owner and developer of Koch's Meadow Hills Third Subdivision, has submitted a request to rezone the plat from an agriculture zone to a high-density residential zone. Koch said 50 single-family units and four apartment buildings with 32 units each would be built on the property.

Some commissioners questioned whether Dickinson Parks and Recreation would receive cash in lieu of land on the third phase. Commissioners were also concerned about the development of 10th Avenue West east of the property. City Planner Ed Courton said he will discuss the issue with City Engineer Shawn Soehren.

The commission voted unanimously to recommend the preliminary plat with the conditions that Dickinson Parks and Recreations send a letter addressing the third phase and the questions concerning 10th Avenue West are addressed. Koch said Wednesday the issues were addressed after the meeting. Koch added building the units will help housing needs in

Dickinson.

The final request will be reviewed by the commission Nov. 2 at the next meeting.
