Council may act on annexation
During its monthly meeting Monday, Sept. 22, the Basehor City Council could give its approval for the annexations of properties currently outside the city's boundaries.
The City Council is expected to either approve or deny annexation ordinances for the Tucker property, approximately 200 acres, and the Zarda property, approximately 80 acres.
The Tucker property is at the southwest corner of 166th Street and State Avenue and is slated for future development. City officials said the land would most likely be used for housing and commercial development fronting the highway.
The Zarda property is located along Kansas Highway 7, north of Leavenworth Road just east of the Falcon Lakes development. In previous city meetings, the property has been discussed as being developed for commercial purposes.
The City Council is also slated to take action on a rezoning ordinance for an 11-acre property also owned by the Zarda brothers, Ben and Tom. The ground is located on Hollingsworth Road, north of Falcon Lakes, and plans indicate single-family attached homes will be built on the acreage.
The City Council is also slated to take action on the following:
- An interlocal agreement with Leavenworth County regarding wastewater to the Cedar Lakes and Pinehurst developments.
- An interlocal agreement with Leavenworth County providing for joint regulation of land use lying within territory designated as urban growth management area.
- An ordinance approving the purchase of bullet proof vests for the police department.
- A change order for the U.S. Highway 24/40 project.
