City Subdividing Vacant Parcel Near Airway/Montana Intersection

A long vacant plot of land near the airport will soon be subdivided by the City in a move that could spur future development, this after recently changing the zoning of the property to SmartCode. A Resubdivision Combination application will be reviewed at the March 7, 2013, City Plan Commission (CPC) meeting.

The 9.3 acre parcel will be subdivided into nine plots in what the application calls a "mixed-use development." Located at the southwest corner of Airway Boulevard and Boeing Drive, building plans will have to be approved prior to permits being issued due to the SmartCode designation.

Two "private" streets will allow access to most of the lots within the property. High Street will travel south into the development from Boeing Drive, and West Street will provide access from Airway Boulevard. In the Southern Industrial Park Master Plan approved by the City last year, High Street will be a meandering avenue traveling north and south through an envisioned shopping, restaurant, and entertainment district. Currently, industrial uses dominate the area.

Concepts for the property found in the Southern Industrial Park Master Plan.
No definite plans have been revealed for the property, and the City may simply be subdividing the large plot to make it more enticing to developers.
