HAYDEN - A pair of property owners want approximately 180 acres of their land annexed into the city of Hayden.

The land, currently under Kootenai County's jurisdiction, sits west of the Coeur d'Alene Airport and runs south to Hayden Avenue. It's owned by the Hayden Area Regional Sewer Board and Jacquot Farm Enterprises.

They're requesting along with the annexation that it be separated into different zoning classifications. Light Industrial zoning would sit along the north side of the property, next to the airport, over 52 acres. South of that would be 101 acres of residential zoning, while farther south, along Hayden Avenue, 27 acres would be zoned for commercial use.

Those zonings are consistent with the area's comprehensive plan, said Connie Krueger, Hayden community and economic development director.

The Light Industrial zoning near the airport would act as a buffer between the airport and any potential development.

The property connects with the city of Hayden on the eastern property line.

Ken Windram, administrator at the Hayden Regional Sewer Board's wastewater treatment facility, said the land would be used for future expansion at the facility. As many facilities across the region are doing, Hayden is looking to expand its operation in light of tighter wastewater requirements mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Richard Jacquot, representing Jacquot Farm Enterprises which owns a majority of the 180 acres, said the company plans to sell the property one day, though nothing is planned for the immediate future, and it would be more marketable as part of the city.

The proposal will go before the Hayden Planning Commission at 5 p.m. Monday at Hayden City Hall chambers.

    No! Zone the WHOLE THING industrial/commercial. There are plenty of multi-acre tracts zoned residential that have no homes on them because there is no demand for new subdivisions...and these guys want to build another subdivision? My parents live in a subdivision that has been there ten years and is still two-thirds complete because they can't convince enough people to buy houses there (and it's a nice subdivision, as subdivisions go), and these guys want to build another subdivision?

    After this is done, Hayden needs to go out to Post Falls and figure out how they're getting all the industrial development. Then they need to do that.

    This area needs new industry far more than it needs more homesites no one wants to build on...'cause I think we got about everyone who wants to leave California for Idaho in Idaho already.

    I've been expecting this property to be developed for years now.

    The land they want to annex is also at the approach end of Runway 06, the only runway at the airport with an instrument landing system. Any aircraft coming into our airport in inclement weather will fly the ILS, and putting buildings of any kind right underneath them isn't clever....

    Annex the land next to an airport and build houses, then listen to the owners complain about aircraft flying over their homes and the noise they make.

    The Sewer Dist is passing a HUGE new LID and I suspect need this land annexed before they start gouging us again. Paid my LID once and now they want to charge us again.

    NO!

    We have failed subdivisions all over this area. We also claim that we need to protect the aquifer. 11 homes per acre on top of it does not protect it. We need "SUSTAINABLE" employment in this area and let building pay itself as needed.
