Commission set to consider numerous city developments

June 9, 2005

Tuesday night's Basehor Planning Commission meeting was postponed until next week because the board, which normally includes seven members, did not have the four members necessary for a quorum.

The meeting has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, at Basehor City Hall.

Since last month, the planning commission has been operating shorthanded. In May, two members -- Julie Cogley and Burl Gratny -- resigned. A third member, George Smith, was not appointed.

City planner Angela Solberg said one of the four remaining members was not able to attend the Tuesday hearing because of a death in the family.

At next week's meeting, the commission will consider:

  • A request submitted by Landplan Engineering to rezone 73.5 acres at the southwest corner of 155th Street and Donahoo Road from rural to single-family residential.
  • A request also submitted by Landplan Engineering to rezone 6.5 acres also at the southwest corner of 155th Street and Donahoo Road from rural to general business district.
  • A request submitted by Metzger Meadows to rezone 4.8 acres at 15749 Leavenworth Road from suburban residential to single-family residential. The request will be made during a public hearing.
  • A request also submitted by Metzger Meadows for a preliminary plat on the same land. The request also will fall under a public hearing.

Public hearings

Next month, the commission will host a series of public hearings to discuss on-going residential and commercial developments in Basehor.

The public hearings on the following developments are set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, at Basehor City Hall:

  • Wolf Creek Junction, at the northeast corner 155th Street and U.S. Highway 24-40. The development, formerly called Basehor Plaza, is seeking approval for its preliminary plat, which encompasses 19 acres on the east end.

The development already has received approval of its preliminary plat for the western portion. While under Basehor Plaza ownership, land on the eastern end was formerly platted as multifamily residential; under the ownership of Wolf Creek Junction developers, the entire development will be commercial.

  • Pinehurst, just south of U.S. Highway 24-40 from the Basehor Town Square development. Engineers from Schlagel and Associates are requesting approval of the development's amended preliminary development plan.

Original plans for land has changed. Developers are seeking approval of the preliminary development plan and have requested approval of its preliminary plat/final development plan for 14 acres.

The land was to include 25 four-plexes, but now developers have designs to build 45 single-family homes, to be named the Pines of Pinehurst.

  • Planning commission members will also consider a request from Basehor resident Shawn Mock to rezone a 26,400-square-foot tract at 2946 N. 156th St. from suburban residential to single-family residential.
