COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 990121

 

Designating an expansion of the Kansas City/Claycomo Satellite Enterprise Zone and directing the City Manager to apply for State designation of the expanded satellite zone.

 

WHEREAS, Missouri Enterprise Zone law was revised in 1989 by the addition of Section 135.207, RSMo, which allows for designation of one satellite enterprise zone in any Missouri community classified as a village whose borders lie adjacent to a city whose population exceeds four hundred thousand and which has an existing state designated enterprise zone; and

 

WHEREAS, the village must contain within its corporate limits a factory, mining operation, mill, plant or warehouse which has at least three thousand employees and has an investment in plant, machinery and equipment of at least two hundred million dollars; and

 

WHEREAS, the local governing authorities of both the village and the adjacent city with the existing enterprise zone must approve the satellite enterprise zone; and

 

WHEREAS, after approval of the satellite zone proposal by the local governing authorities, the Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development can designate the area as a satellite enterprise zone; and

 

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Village of Claycomo both conferred satellite enterprise zone status on a site in the Village of Claycomo in 1990 and the Missouri Department of Economic Development formally designated this area as a satellite enterprise zone on January 22, 1991; and

 

WHEREAS, after joint designation in 1994 by the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Village of Claycomo, the Missouri Department of Economic Development formally designated an expansion of the satellite enterprise zone on March 10, 1995; NOW, THEREFORE,

eastern boundary of 1990 Census Tract 208.02, Block 513A, to the point where Hughes Road intersects with Big Shoal Creek; thence northwest along Big Shoal Creek, which also constitutes the Kansas City/Claycomo city limits, to the point on the creek where the Kansas City/Claycomo city limits line turns west; then west along the city limits line to the point on the west side of the Norfolk & Western Railroad tracks where the Ford Motor Company property line intersects the city limits line; then generally north along the Ford property line to its point of intersection with the security fence forming the southern boundary of the paint building; then west along the security fence to a point on a line lying parallel to and 100 feet west of the west face of the expanded paint building; then north along this line for approximately 500 feet; then west for approximately 1,300 feet; then north for approximately 1,200 feet to Ravena Road (also known as Claycomo Road); then east along Ravena Road for approximately 1,000 feet to the point where the eastern boundary of the Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) yard turns north; then north, northwest and west around the perimeter of the KCP&L property and continuing along the northern boundary of the truck convoy lot to a point approximately 175 feet past the boundary between the KCP&L yard and the truck convoy lot; thence proceeding due north to a point just north of the railroad spur line which is to the south and parallel to the convoy storage yard, then northwest to the Ford property line which runs parallel to Highway 69; then northeast along the property line to the point of beginning.
