Housing plans on agenda

September 29, 2005

Members of the Basehor Planning Commission will consider approving plans for the Pines of Pinehurst, a single-family area located inside one of the city's largest developments, during its meeting next week.

The planning commission will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, inside the meeting room at Basehor City Hall, 2620 N. 155th St.

According to the meeting agenda, representatives of Corvan Construction will request final approval for the Pines of Pinehurst, which contains 45 single-family homes inside Pinehurst, a 90-plus acre development south of U.S. Highway 24-40.

Basehor city planners said developers have "improved" original plans, which called for building 45 four-plexes, by altering the design to accommodate single-family homes.

Planning commission members also will consider a rezoning request, submitted by Benchmark Management, for 70 acres about 1,000 feet north of 166th Street and U.S. Highway 24-40.

Developers are requesting that zoning of the land be changed from suburban residential to single-family residential.

The Basehor City Council recently annexed the property. City planners said the rezoning request is the first step by property owners to develop the ground.

The final item listed on Tuesday night's agenda is a request for a lot split, submitted by local resident Shawn Mock, for a 26,400 square foot piece of land at 2946 N. 156th Street.
