Costco expresses interest in Bismarck

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - Bismarck residents have been hearing rumors about Costco for a long time now, and it appears the company is interested in in a north-side location.

The agenda for the Bismarck Planning and Zoning Commission shows Costco Wholesale has applied for a permit for a filling station on land between 57th Avenue and Brookside Lane, east of State Street.

William Hutchings, the city land use planner, said, “The City of Bismarck would require the approval of a site plan, and the approval and issuance of a building permit,” in order for Costco to acquire the land and begin building.

In order for a company to begin building on the land it would have to be annexed to the city.

The city is looking for public input on the Costco plan, and is holding a public hearing on Wednesday, June 26 at 5:30 p.m. at the City County Building.
