The Hutchinson City Council this week took the next step in paving the way for the possible development of apartment complex on the Crow River.

A developer is interested in building the structure on the site of the “old Cenex fertilizer plant” on 3rd Avenue Northwest.

The city had planned on acting on entering into a purchase agreement with the developer but at Tuesday’s meeting, denied entering into that and instead approved a “first right of refusal” agreement.

The city plans on selling the property for $351,000 for future development.

Some officials and residents feel the city should work as quickly as possible on the apartment proposal.

Jim Fahey spoke to the council:

Councilor Steve Cook felt there are other properties readily available in Hutchinson to build apartments and other types of development should be looked at for that site:

Regardless, city officials say the proposal is still very early in the process, and ultimately, the city council has the right to make the final decision.
