Kimball City Council Gives Green-Light To Housing Project


     The Kimball City Council has approved a plan for a proposed multi-family housing project on the east side of the city tied to Clean Harbors, the firm that operates a hazardous waste incinerator just south of Kimball.

      Clean Harbors is nearing completion of a major expansion of the incinerator and created a limited-liability company, Clean Harbors Kimball Realty, to help provide additional affordable housing in the community.

    The project calls for the construction of a pair of 2-or-3-bedroom 2-story modular townhouses and 2 single-story modular structures with 4 single-bedroom units in each on 2 parcels of city-owned land.

       The city council last week approved the sale of the land and its rezoning to multi-family residential. 

     Kimball will also make some utility upgrades to the site while Clean Harbors would forfeit the land back to the city if it fails to obtain all the needed building permits or to develop the property in the manner described in the plan it submitted to the city.

     Kimball City Administrator Annette Brower says construction is anticipated to start sometime in the spring or even sooner, depending on the weather
