The city is currently developing approximately 30 acres of vacant property at the intersection of Scott County Highway 69 and U.S. Highway 169. The property will be utilized for commercial development and potentially a park.
The city purchased the excess right-of-way from the Minnesota Department of Transportation in 2015, following the completion of the 69/169 bypass. The property was included in the city's 2015 West End Master Plan and Land Use study.
Phase 1 - Infrastructure Extension
To prepare for development, the city constructed a permanent extension of Vierling Drive between Taylor Street and County Highway 69.
Phase 2 - Property Development
In March 2018, the city began selling property in the development area.
