Paperwork mistake delays Dickinson housing project

DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Dickinson's planning board is delaying a proposed 93-acre housing project because some of its potential neighbors weren't told about a public hearing.

DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Dickinson's planning board is delaying a proposed 93-acre housing project because some of its potential neighbors weren't told about a public hearing.

City planner Ed Courton says some residents who should have been notified about a public rezoning hearing were not told, because a list of nearby property owners wasn't complete.

The proposed development would be at the corner of 20th Street Southwest and Highway 22, a half-mile south of Dickinson. It would have 207 building lots.

The Dickinson Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday voted to table requests to rezone the land and approve a land-use plan until the correct notices are given.

Courton told The Dickinson Press that most of the affected residents knew about the hearing anyway and some of them showed up.
