Development proposed

October 2, 2003

A developer will pitch an idea for a new subdivision next week during the Basehor Planning Commission meeting.

Leavenworth developer Lonnie Phillips will ask the Planning Commission to approve his preliminary development plat next week, on Tuesday, Oct. 7.

Phillips is the developer of Maples subdivision, a single- and multi- family housing development east of the Pin Oak subdivision. Pin Oak is a single-family development with 65 to 70 homes on 155th Street, north of Leavenworth Road.

Its new neighbor, Maples subdivision, will include 77 single-family homes and 23 town homes or duplexes, according to the preliminary plat. The subdivision will sit on approximately 40 acres of ground; the developer will build new curb and gutter streets, plans indicate.

The development will be completed in five phases, said Mike Hooper, Basehor city codes administrator.

"They want to get started as soon as possible," Hooper said.

The Planning Commission must approve the developments' preliminary and final plats and the City Council needs to sign off on approval for the final plat before the development can move forward.

Hooper said developers hope to start building by spring 2004.
