City, eyeing development, hires consultant company
By DOUG CALSBEEK
ORANGE CITY — Properties are opening up for city development in Orange City. With the recent acquisition of four tracts under city ownership, the city council decided to contract with a firm to help plan future development at the Monday, Sept. 7, meeting of the city council.
ISG of Sioux Falls was one of five firms which sent proposals to a committee tasked to find a company to assist the city in developing a community growth and development plan. Requests for proposals were sent out in July to 10 qualified firms. The committee, made up of council members Steve Roesner and Tony Vande Brake, Community Development Director Mark Gaul, City Administrator Earl Woudstra, Public Works Director Matt Van Schouwen and Code Enforcement Officer Kurt Frederes, received five requests and narrowed the field to two. Representatives visited the community and the committee held interviews. They recommended ISG to the council.
Gaul introduced the recommendation to the council, listing the 70-plus acres the city has acquired since 2016. The majority of the airport property is now open, now that the city is part of the Sioux County Regional Airport near Maurice. The city will acquire the property of the present MOC-Floyd Valley Orange City Elementary school. On the east edge of Orange City, there is approximately 13 acres of undeveloped property which will be in play. The city also owns the area around the location of the new MOC-Floyd Valley Elementary school that will be built.
