Williston Square

Major Initiatives


Construction on the much-anticipated Williston Square commercial and residential district kicked off in 2020.  Plans for the 800-acre development on the former site of Sloulin Field International Airport include a Civic Center, larger retailer, and a mix of casual and fast-food restaurants. Brand-new residential homes and apartment buildings are also part of the design.

The central location of Williston Square means businesses and residents will be close to Williston’s core. The new development offers convenient access to Highway 2, existing restaurants and stores, the Williston Municipal Golf Course, parks, and established residential neighborhoods.
