FD Council to revisit housing development

The Fort Dodge City Council will again revisit the effort to turn the former Theiss farm into a new neighborhood called Williams Bend when it meets Monday.

The Council meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 819 First Ave. S., with a workshop discussion on trails.

The regular business meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building.

During that session, the Council will again address a pair of zoning changes needed to build duplexes and apartments on part of the Theiss farm property. The Council had previously approved the first of three required readings of the changes, only to find out that proper legal notice had not been given in advance of that action.

Also on Monday, the council will consider the creation of a new self-supported municipal improvement district along Fifth Avenue South. In a self-supported municipal improvement district, property owners pay an extra tax to finance improvements there.

The city already has such a district downtown.
