Creston School Board Approves South Cottonwood Housing Plan

May 19, 2015

Creston City Administrator Mike Taylor spoke to the Creston School Board regarding the South Cottonwood Housing Urban Renewal Plan.

The city bought 44 acres of land 8 years ago. That land is bordered to the south by Adams St. and to the west by Cottonwood Rd. According to Taylor, the plan is to build 24 townhouse units in the area to the north of the floodplain. The city got in contact with a developer, Don Sonntag of Atlantic.

Though this is primarily a city project, they do need permission from both the Board of Supervisors and the School Board. The School Board approved the South Cottonwood housing agreement, with a vote of 5-0 Monday night.

Adair and Guthrie County Emergency Management have completed work on a new phone app that gives up-to-the-minute information on local emergencies. The app covers boil orders, evacuations, weather warnings and a lot more.
