City approves housing developments, infrastructure

9 Dec 2020


Dodge City Commissioners approved a Rural Housing Incentive District ordinance for housing development with Volz Builders LLC, which will provide 39 single-family residences with a market value of no less than $180,000.

The housing development, Candletree No. 6, is located near the southwest corner of the subdivision at the Gary Avenue and Vail Street intersection in Dodge City.

"Back in April we had the public hearing and you approved this development plan," housing district coordinator Mollea Wainscott said. "We have built over 400 units with the RHID. We update the housing assessment every three years. The last one we had showed a huge need in housing."

Every three years, the housing assessment will be done with the next one coming in 2021 where the housing needs will be addressed for the city. The RHID will be looked at when the need for housing is no longer needed.
