BAXTER CITY COUNCIL: Some traffic concerns raised about Costco plan


BAXTER — The Baxter City Council  got its first look Tuesday at the proposed Costco development sketch plan. 

The main concern among council members and others present at Tuesday’s council meeting was traffic in, out and around the 24-acre parcel at the southwest corner of Highways 210 and 371. 

Resident John Sullivan said it was important for the city to protect Elder Drive, which would serve the property on its west side.
