Developer briefs board on his plans

February 5, 2004

If a proposed development in Basehor moves forward, it will resemble one just east of the city on U.S. Highway 24/40, a developer told members of the Basehor Planning Commission Tuesday, Feb. 3.

On Tuesday night developer Don Bud briefed the Planning Commission on plans for 100 acres of land lying west of 155th Street and fronting the east side of 158th Street.

The meeting between developers and the Planning Commission was for the presentation only; the Planning Commission didn't take action on the development Tuesday night.

The land is owned by Steve Miles, owner of Miles Excavating and the developer behind the Wolf Creek Industrial Park. He bought the property in January.

Bud, project developer, said the proposed planned residential development, which is slated to contain single and multi-family homes as well as commercial businesses, would be "almost a mirror image of what we're trying to do in Delaware Ridge."

Bud also is involved as a developer with Piper Estates.

Delaware Ridge is a 500-acre development at 24/40 and 130th Street. It is slated to include approximately 500 single and multi-family units.

The Basehor version will include single-family houses priced at $180,000 and up, and four-plexes, Bud said.

The commercial side of the development will feature "pad sites," or business lots for "localized businesses," Bud said.

The Planning Commission found little wrong with the concept shown to them Tuesday night.

Bud said developers wanted to get some feedback on the project before moving forward in the design phase.
