FD council gives go-ahead to Theiss farm housing
26 Sep 2017
Deals that lay the groundwork for hundreds of new homes in the form of houses, duplexes and apartments on the former Theiss farm property were approved by the Fort Dodge City Council Monday.
Some of the elected officials defended the inclusion of multifamily housing, which has attracted the most criticism, in the plans.
Councilman Terry Moehnke said that already one out of four houses in the city is a rental property.
And Councilman Kim Alstott said the proposed rental units would be “high-end apartments” with rents in the $1,000 to $1,200 a month range.
