City leaders put States Addition and Diamond Acres subdivisions a step closer to being complete Wednesday morning at the Dickinson Planning and Zoning Commission meeting at City Hall.
The final plats now go to the City Commission for final approval.
States Addition has been in the works for about six years.
“Your wish has finally come true,” Planning and Zoning Vice Chairman Tracy Tooz said to Walt Smith of Kadrmas Lee & Jackson, who was representing the developer.
States Addition is between the Interstate 94 Business Loop West and State Avenue. It is comprised of single family housing, townhomes and apartments.
Population growth due to a recent oil boom in western North Dakota sped up development in Dickinson and put finishing States Addition on the fast track.
Diamond Acres Subdivision encompasses about 105 acres and is situated south of 21st Street East and west of 10th Avenue East.
The area is zoned for low and medium residential and the roads are named after gemstones such as pearls, emeralds, sapphires and garnets.
In other business:
Developers presented sketch plats for BK Subdivision, Industrial Park Subdivision, Koch’s Meadow Hills Second Addition and another parcel were presented.
BK Subdivision, if approved, would be adjacent to Highway 22 on the east side, across from SolarBee to the west.
Don Schmeling was representing the plat and said there has been a lot of interest in the subdivision, though there are no existing access points off Highway 22 for water and sewer. Contact has been made with Southwest Water Authority, he said.
Industrial Park Subdivision is on the west side of Highway 22 behind SolarBee.
Mark Swenson, representing the plat, said the subdivision is zoned agricultural but owners hope to change it to light industrial. The access road is to the north on 32nd Street Southwest; a temporary cul-de-sac would be on the south end of the plat. There is no water or sewer but they have made contact with Southwest Water.
Koch’s Meadow Hills Second Addition is zoned low to high residential and road names include Donna Lane and Jerry Lane.
The last parcel is in northwest Dickinson near Koch’s Meadow Hills and Country Oaks.
