Honey Creek Farms plan is approved
By unanimous vote, the Basehor Planning Commission approved, 6-0, the final development plan and plat for the Honey Creek Farms development Tuesday, Dec. 2.
Honey Creek Farms is an 80-acre, multi-use development located at the southwest corner of 166th Street and U.S. Highway 24/40. The development will include 67 single-family homes, 16 patio homes, 28 town homes and 22 commercial lots.
On Tuesday night, Honey Creek Farms engineers said minor changes were made to the final development plan and plat including slight changes in drainage and buffering.
Development engineers also briefed the Planning Commission on a traffic study performed concerning the intersection of 166th Street and 24/40. The traffic study indicated once the development reaches 25 percent occupancy, a traffic signal would be needed at the intersection.
Engineers said they would discuss the possible traffic signal with the Kansas Department of Transportation, the department with the final authority for a traffic light.
Approximately 36 acres of Honey Creek Farms is zoned for planned residential use and the remaining 44 acres is slated for general business, according to the plat.
