The City of Brooks owns land on 7 Street East that was the site of the old rodeo grounds. The land is mostly vacant, but it is full of potential.
We want to hear what you think should be developed on this land. Would you like to see houses, stores, walking trails, a park? Help the City of Brooks determine the future of this land!
The old rodeo grounds are located on 7 Street East. The site is surrounded by the Brooks Golf Course to the north and east. West of the site, across 7 Street East, is industrial development.
South of the site are a few City of Brooks maintenance buildings. On the landscape south of the site is the continuation of the Marshall Drain, which is part of the City’s stormwater management infrastructure. This area is also currently used as an off-leash dog park.
The City originally put out a request for proposals from developers to submit ideas for developing this site. The City’s intention was for this area to be developed as a mixed-use site combining commercial and medium density residential development. The City did not receive any proposals that met the criteria. Instead, the City decided to expand the options for the site and see what the public was interested in.
Mixed-use development refers to more than one use in a shared building or development area. Mixed-use projects may include any combination of housing, office, retail, commercial, recreational, or industrial development.
The old rodeo grounds site is approximately 23.9 acres and could fit a range of different uses, such as retail stores, different housing forms (from single detached houses to medium density apartment buildings), and recreation uses such as a park or walking trails.
We want to know what you would like to see developed on the site. Consider what mix of uses you think makes sense on the site and the types of housing and businesses Brooks needs. Or let us know if you have a totally different idea for the site.
Share your thoughts with City staff through the public survey available in a paper version (just ask at City Hall) or online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CDXHX9V
