Maples subdivision going back before Planning Commission

November 26, 2003

Residents against the development of the Maples subdivision had little to say Monday, Nov. 24 as the Basehor City Council approved rezoning land for the possible development.

It remains to be seen whether all will remain as quiet next week, on Tuesday, Dec. 2, when the Basehor Planning Commission will review a new, preliminary plat for the development.

In October, amid resident complaints, the Planning Commission voted down a multi-family rezoning proposal for the Maples subdivision. Residents of Pin Oak, located near Maples, complained the new subdivision went against what they were told when purchasing their property.

On Tuesday night, Maples developers will bring a new proposal in for review, said Mike Hooper, Basehor city codes administrator.

The new plat will include single-family homes only; the Maples subdivision is to include approximately 100 homes total, Hooper said.

This week, the Basehor City Council approved, 4-1, rezoning acreage for the Maples subdivision from rural residential to single-family residential.

City Council member Bill Hooker voted against the measure.
