Vote set on Cedar Falls
The Leavenworth County Commission was scheduled to vote on the final plat of Cedar Falls, a proposed single-family development just outside Basehor, during its meeting Thursday afternoon.
Although results of the hearing were not available as of press time, Leavenworth County planning and zoning director John Zoellner said he believed the new development would receive the county's approval.
"As far as I'm concerned we've got everything we need from them," Zoellner said.
Cedar Falls is a 68-home single-family subdivision located just east of Cedar Lakes, an existing 114-home development south of Basehor. Gary Wells is the developer of both Cedar Lakes and Cedar Falls.
Zoellner said Cedar Falls includes approximately 40 acres.
Sewage from both Cedar Lakes and Cedar Falls will be pumped to the Basehor Wastewater Treatment Facility as part of an interlocal agreement Leavenworth County is negotiating with the city of Basehor.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment ordered a three-lagoon system that serves Cedar Lakes be closed down. Both of the developments will encompass Sewer District No. 7.
Zoellner said sewage from Cedar Lakes and Cedar Falls will be pumped to a lift station inside the nearby Pinehurst development, which will eventually connect with a line running to the Basehor treatment plant.
