S. Sioux City to Add 30 Campsites for Workers
CF Industries is planning a $1.7 billion expansion project, one of the largest in Iowa's history.
To accommodate the increased number of construction workers, leaders in nearby South Sioux City, Neb., are planning to expand its campground, KTIV-TV, Sioux City, Iowa, reported.
City council members approved on Wednesday (July 10) a letter to CF regarding future housing needs.
The city is proposing to build 30 RV campsites on a 10-acre area near the soccer fields about a quarter-mile south of Scenic Park.
The sites would have sewer, electric and water with the capability of year round occupancy.
But this will only happen if the city can get a two-year guarantee from CF.
"We think that expanding the campground, expanding opportunity here is in the best long term interest to the city," said Lance Hedquist, South Sioux City administrator.
The city estimates the cost of the expansion project would be $320,000.
