Council to take action on Target property replat

Posted Dec 02, 2019 4:21 PM

HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Hutchinson City Council will take action on a replat of the old Target property during Tuesday’s regular meeting.

Property owners Noble Hutchinson, LLC, of Fort Worth, Texas, want to divide up the property into three parcels to provide new storefront opportunities along 17th Avenue. One of those is already spoken for. Aspen Dental wants to build a new office on the west property. The east property is up for lease. The rest of the property will include the old Target building and the remaining parking lot.

Aspen Dental is a national chain of dental offices, but does not own or operate the dental practices. Control over the care provided is the sole responsibility of the independent practice and the dentists they employ, according to the company's mission statement.

City Planning Director Ryan Hvitlok says Aspen Dental hopes to begin moving forward with the project by the end of the year. 

Tuesday's Hutchinson City Council meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the Hutchinson City offices.
