Basehor Planning Commission will get first look at Miles plan

January 29, 2004

Steve Miles, owner of Miles Excavating and the developer behind the Wolf Creek Industrial Park, has purchased approximately 100 acres near 158th Street, which he plans to develop.

During next week's Basehor Planning Commission meeting, 7 p.m. Feb. 3, Landplan Engineering will present a concept plan for the property.

Miles purchased the land from Don Wilming in January; the parcel's location is best described as a tract lying west of 155th Street, fronting the east side of 158th Street.

City officials said Miles has indicated residential and commercial property would be developed on the tract.

Planning commission members will not take action on the development Tuesday night but will provide engineers with input into the concept, city officials said.

Landplan Engineering is the same firm working with Honey Creek Farms, a proposed residential and commercial development on 166th Street.

Miles also is developing his Wolf Creek Industrial Park on U.S. Highway 24/40, which will feature light industrial and commercial businesses.

Tuesday night's planning commission agenda is limited; the continuation of a hearing for the Maples subdivision has been continued until March (see related story, page 8A), however, planning commission members will be introduced to a new city employee.

The city has hired Angela Solberg as a planning and zoning inspector. She has four years experience and will assume her new responsibilities Feb. 2.

Part of Solberg's responsibilities will be to staff planning commission meetings, city officials said.
