WHEREAS, with recent major investments in transit (streetcar, MAX bus routes), planned investments in future transit corridors and the City’s stated commitment to work to integrate the City’s rail transit system and subsequent expansions with all modes of local and regional transit, including pedestrian, bicycle, bus and commuter rail services, so that all forms of transit work in conjunction with each other to move people to and from their neighborhoods and a variety of activity and employment centers, the City recognizes the need to create a policy to guide the establishment of transit supportive development, zoning, and public investments; and 

WHEREAS, the City Planning and Development Department, in response to this need, has conducted a study which incorporates stakeholder input, integrates relevant plans and policies and national best practices to create a guide and action plan for transit oriented development in Kansas City; and 

  WHEREAS, as a result of the study, the Department has proposed a framework for future development within transit station areas and along transit corridors which support transit; and

 WHEREAS, said framework provides a guide for future development and redevelopment, for specific and general policies to guide future decisions, and for public and private investments in transit station areas and along transit corridors; and

  WHEREAS, the Department has incorporated its findings in the Kansas City Transit Oriented Development Policy; and

WHEREAS, the Kansas City Transit Oriented Development Policy has incorporated the policies of the FOCUS Kansas City Plan and other appropriate planning documents; and  

WHEREAS, the recommendations of the Kansas City Transit Oriented Development Policy are consistent with the Phase II – Streetcar/Light Rail Expansion plan and the region’s long-range transit and transportation plans;

WHEREAS, legal notice for the public hearing before the City Plan Commission was published on April 4, 2016, in conformity with State and local laws; and 

WHEREAS, the City Plan Commission approved the Kansas City Transit Oriented Development Policy on April 19, 2016; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
