City moves to annex Strata Corporation

8/06/09 (Thu)

The Beulah City Council held the first reading on an ordinance to annex the Strata Corporation site north of Beulah off N.D. Highway 49 at its Aug. 3 meeting.

The three acre site will be zoned as industrial. The ready mix concrete facility will be connected to the city through a strip of land running through the state Department of Transportation right of way along Highway 49. City Planner John Phillips explained that it was necessary to annex the land in the DOT right of way so the Strata property would be connected to the city as required by state law. Phillips added that using the DOT right of way meant the city didn’t need to annex any additional property belonging to adjacent landowners. He added that the landowners in the area were open to working with the city if and when any future development occurs along that corridor.
