RESOLUTION NO. 060797

 

Supporting the transfer of a tract of land at the northwest corner of Holmes Road and Bannister Road from The Land Trust of Jackson County, Missouri, for redevelopment.

 

WHEREAS, Land Trust of Jackson County currently has a 26.6 acre tract of land in its portfolio which is located at the northwest corner of Holmes Road and Bannister Road in south Kansas City, Missouri, and identified as Parcel Number 48-510-08-14-01-2-00-000; and

 

WHEREAS, the property is undeveloped and has, largely, been in that state since about 1996, when J.C. Nichols Co. vacated the property; and

 

WHEREAS, there are subsurface mines throughout most of the property, with many cave-ins, presenting a clear hazard; and

 

WHEREAS, redevelopment will require specialized skills and major investment by developers to bring it back to productive use; and

 

WHEREAS, the land sits as an eyesore, and a public hazard, in south Kansas City, this despite the fact that the property is located adjacent to a major transportation corridor that should make it very appealing for commercial development; and

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council wish to encourage the development and revitalization of that portion of the City; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the Mayor and Council support a blight study and general development plan for the 26.6 acre tract of land located at the northwest corner of Holmes Road and Bannister Road in south Kansas City, Missouri, and identified as Parcel Number 48-510-08-14-01-2-00-000 by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority of Kansas City, Missouri (PIEA) and encourage PIEA to undertake the blight study and general development plan.

 

Section 2. That the Mayor and Council further support the transfer of this tract from The Land Trust of Jackson County, Missouri, to the PIEA for redevelopment at the appropriate time.
