The Iowa Falls Council gave its permission last week for the city to buy 58 acres of land for $350,000 with the hope that it will become the Scenic City’s newest neighborhood.
The council met in special session Friday afternoon with one business item on its agenda: discuss and consider the purchase of land. The land in question is 58 acres that lie within city limits along River Road. The property has been owned by Justin and Tiffany Jordahl since 2013. The only structure on the land is a barn, which City Manager Jody Anderson said the city would plan to protect and restore.
