SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Sioux City is moving ahead on the last piece of the puzzle in the development of the Bridgeport Industrial Park.
Monday night, the council agreed to purchase 109 acres of shovel ready land from the Siouxland Chamber Foundation. The cost is just over a million dollars.
The Chamber will, in turn, purchase the adjacent 150-acres of property that it's optioned.
The land sits next to the Missouri River, across from the Darling rendering plant. The two parcels represent the last major undeveloped part of the industrial park.
"This is a project that was started some ten years ago or so and the chamber purchased the land originally, the city put in the infrastructure, and this is kind of going onto the second step," said Sioux City Economic Development Director Marty Dougherty.
This is the same property John Morrell considered for a new processing plant a year before they closed up shop in Sioux City.
Dougherty said the flat land is ideal for food processing or major manufacturing. The city expects to see development within two years.
