(Sub.)
Amending Chapter 88, Zoning and Development Code, by amending Section 88-405-04 and creating a new Section 88-408 titled Parkland Dedication, and repealing Section 88-417, to clarify the provisions regarding parkland dedication. (254-S-302)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Patty Noll, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. Since the late 1970’s, the City of Kansas City’s ordinances have required that a developer comply with the parkland requirement – either by dedication of parkland to the City (if the City agrees to accept), by platting of private open space for recreational purposes, or by payment of money in lieu of parkland. A 1979 consent judgment upheld this requirement as constitutional, after the Home Builder’s Association challenged the requirement and sued the City. In recent years, the ordinance (then Chapter 66) was revised to clarify that the parkland requirement also applied to creation of condominium units. Further, staff has also required that a developer comply with the parkland dedication requirement in the creation of new residential units, whether or not platting (or minor subdivision) was required – for example, in the case of a new residential subdivision where lots were combined. The current language does not specifically state that the parkland dedication would apply in the absence of platting, thus the reason for the current text revision. It should be noted that credit will be given for any parkland dedication or funds previously paid for residential units (even if since demolished) on the subject property.
