The city of Johnston wants potential developers to see what they could contribute to the redevelopment of the Merle Hay Road corridor. The city put together this video, highlighting its vision for the Merle Hay Road Gateway Area. A redevelopment plan for the 123 acres of land between Northwest 55th Avenue and Interstate 35/80, was approved by the Johnston City Council in September. The plan aims to make Johnston a destination for businesses and retailers, in addition to creating more recreation and tourism opportunities.
