One vacancy remains on planning board

July 14, 2005

The Basehor City Council filled another vacancy aboard the planning commission Thursday night when it confirmed Mayor Chris Garcia's nomination of a former council candidate.

David Povilonis, winner of the 2005 primary election, was approved Thursday by unanimous vote. He and another confirmed nominee, Bob Harrison, will take office during the commission's August meeting.

Harrison was a candidate for city council in 2002.

Like Harrison, Povilonis has shown a genuine interest in working for the city, Garcia said.

One vacancy remains on the planning commission. Garcia said there are several people interested in the position and that more interviews have been scheduled.

He said he hopes to have the last position filled by the August meeting. The Planning Commission met Thursday, July 7. During its meeting, the board:

  • Approved, 5-0, the preliminary plat for phase 2 of Wolf Creek Junction, formerly named Basehor Plaza. Wolf Creek Junction is a commercial development on 19.26 acres at the northeast corner of 155th Street and U.S. Highway 24-40.
  • Approved, 5-0, a rezoning request from Basehor resident Shawn Mock. The planning commission approved Mock's request to rezone a 26,400-square-foot tract at 2946 N. 156th Street from suburban residential to single-family residential.
  • Approved, 5-0, an amended preliminary development plan for Pinehurst. Pinehurst is a mixed-use development on 97.56 acres south of U.S. Highway 24-40 from the Basehor Town Square.

The planning commission also approved, 5-0, a preliminary plat/final development plan for Pines of Pinehurst, a 14-acre section of the development.
