Council approves plans for Basehor Plaza project

December 18, 2003

On Tuesday night, the Basehor City Council approved the construction drawings and final plat for the Basehor Plaza development.

Basehor Plaza is planned for a 33-acre site at the northeast corner of State Avenue and 155th Street. It will contain commercial lots and four-plexes, according to plans.

Approval of the construction drawings and final plat were tabled last week so the City Council could have more time to study city engineer Joe McAfee's review of the development.

The review of the development listed two areas of concern for Basehor Plaza. The first was the addition of a right-turn lane into the development on 155th Street.

Basehor Plaza developers consented to the right turn lane.

The second concern was that developers sought to construct roads inside Basehor Plaza using different base and overlay standards than city codes permit.

Mike Hooper, Basehor city codes administrator, said the developers want to build roads for Basehor Plaza using six inches of compacted rock and seven inches of asphalt.

The city has agreed to allow the six inches of compacted rock but is requesting eight inches of asphalt, Hooper said.

City Council action on Basehor Plaza was tabled last week with the intention to vote on the issue via a telephone poll. The vote was then rescheduled to coincide with Tuesday's night's special meeting (see related story, Page 6A).
