RESOLUTION NO. 990020

 

Expressing the Council's appreciation and support for the work of the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Little Blue Valley Homes Association in arriving at an agreement concerning the housing project at Highway 40 and Noland Road.

 

WHEREAS, the City Council, through the adoption of Resolution No. 981038 on August 20, 1998, encouraged the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, to meet with the residents of the Little Blue Valley area to discuss their concerns regarding the proposed housing project generally located at Highway 40 and Noland Road and to work towards an agreement which would meet the needs of all parties; and

 

WHEREAS, since the adoption of Resolution No. 981038, the Housing Authority and the Little Blue Valley Homes Association have met and discussed the proposed housing project and have agreed on a compromise plan; and

 

WHEREAS, the compromise plan addresses the concerns of the community and provides for more of a mixed use development, including the construction of 25 to 30, for sale, single family homes which will be developed so as to be in harmony with the surrounding neighborhood; and

 

WHEREAS, the compromise plan also provides for the continued involvement of the neighborhood in the design and management of the housing project through the development of a "Community Task Force" which will greatly aid in the continued communication between all parties so as to make informed decisions for the best interests of the community, including the future residents of the housing project; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council greatly applauds the hard work and effort which has been accomplished by all parties in arriving at a compromise which is in the best interests of the City and its citizens; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby express their appreciation and support for the work of the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Little Blue Valley Homes Association in arriving at an agreement concerning the housing project at Highway 40 and Noland Road and further express their support for the compromise plan which has been agreed to by the parties.
