housing division okayed by county
In what has become almost a monthly routine for the Platte
County planning and zoning department and the county commission,
another proposed major subdivision has been approved.
The proposed 80-lot major subdivision was approved by
the county commission last week, after the developer,
Heritage Development of Kansas, Incorporated on behalf
of Portal Investment Company, requested the rezoning of
approximately 27 acres from PI (planned industrial) to
R-7 (single-family high-density).
The property is located on the east side of NW Running
Horse Road, 1/2 mile north of Highway D.
Other preliminary plats approved for development in the
surrounding area include: Hills of Oakmont, Fox Creek,
Running Horse, Running Horse West, Summit Way and The
Orchards. Current developments in that area include: Lakes
at Oakmont, Timber Park, Timber Park Meadows, and Oak
Besides the approval of an 80-lot major subdivision,
the commission also heard several other requests for smaller
T.W. Development requested the rezoning of 39.14 acres
from agriculture to rural estates to perform a one lot
minor subdivision for a single family dwelling. The property
is located on the west side of Bowlin Lane.
56.96 acres of land was submitted for rezoning by Gene
Bowman from agriculture to rural estates for a two lot
minor subdivision, with each lot eligible for one single
family dwelling. The property is located on the west side
of Baker Road.
Daniel and Melissa Kimball requested the rezoning of
three acres from agriculture to rural single family for
a detached garage. The rezoning order was needed because
they weren't able to meet the 100 foot buffer in the agriculture
zone. All rezoning requests were approved by the commission.
