001218
Amending Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 80-206, Procedure to establish District GP and individual development within the district, and Appendix A, Section 2.7, GP-7, Agricultural and low-density residential uses, and enacting in lieu thereof two new sections of like numbers and subject matters.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Tim Parks, City Development Department, stated that the intent of the ordinance is to clarify the requirement set forth in section 80-206 referencing to any development within an GP District. It will also create consistency in determining which uses especially in GP-7. A large majority of the uses allowed in GP-7 are agriculture with one family dwellings. Generally for residential and agriculture uses of land in this district the development plan is not required due to the lesser intensity of the uses. There are small numbers of more intensive land uses such as communication towers, quarries, nurseries churches golf courses county clubs, schools and utilities that staff feels should be reviewed thoroughly so an adequate review of issues can be conducted and presented to CPC and City Council prior to construction activities. The second purpose of the text amendment is to better regulate wireless communication towers in GP-7 zoning. The purpose of the text amendment specific to wireless communication towers is to insure that city staff, CPC and City council have an opportunity to review any future applications for wireless communication towers in the Kansas City International Airport General Planned District. Councilman Ford expressed concerns regarding the GP-7 zoning. Committee recommended approval of the ordinance.

Approving the preliminary plat of Doyle´s Subdivision on approximately a 6.96 acre tract of land generally located on the south side of Lookout Drive and approximately 750 feet west of Canyon Drive (14001 Lookout Drive). (SD 0851)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS"
Don Gustafson, City Development Department, stated that approval of the ordinance will create two single family lots, reconfigure the existing lots 59 and 60 of the Unity Ridge and Gardens Subdivision. The applicant is replatting these two lots because they were created through an illegal lot split, therefore a building permit cannot be issued until the lots have been legally created. Cathy Yale, 14007 Lookout Dr, applicant, concurs with staff's recommendation.

Amending Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances, by adding a new section to be known as Section 80-11A0309, rezoning an area of approximately 6 acres generally located approximately 260 feet north and 160 feet west of the intersection of N.W. 68th Street and N. Platte Purchase Drive (N. Bell Street) from District R-1a (One-Family Dwellings) to District C-2-p (Local Retail Business - Limited District), and approving a preliminary plan for the same. (12389-P)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Ordinances 001220, 001221 and 001222 are related cases. Patricia Jensen, Assistant City Attorney, stated that a petition of protest has been filed regarding these ordinances and staff has not had the opportunity to review the petition. Patty Noll, City Development Department, stated that the project is known as "Falcon Ridge" a commercial development for three building and a residential development for 113 units. The project is located at NW 68th Street. On August 1st City Plan Commission recommended that the city council approve the ordinances also urging the council to place a high priority on solving flooding problems in the Line Creed Valley Area. The North Star Neighborhood Association is in opposition of the project alleging that it will be too much traffic, noise and crime in the area. The association also has concerns regarding the commercial development and multi-family units and potential storm drainage and flooding issues. The land is currently undeveloped which was once used for agriculture property. The Major Street Plan states that NW 68th Street as a primary arterial roadway. Until recently NW 68th Street was a two land asphalt paved hilly roadway, the roadway has been improved. Plans have been revised several times since the first hearing in February to incorporate pedestrian connections, attach town homes and other designs. The development will require construction of two streets that will extend northerly on NW 68th Street. The developer will contribute money in lieu of parkland to be used for improves to Old State Line Greenway Park. A major issue is in reference to the existing flood conditions that are caused by stormwater. When Metro north was developed the City did not require storm water detention of a storm drainage study. However, since the newer development, subdivisions have submitted storm drainage studies to Public Works Department for approval and have built detention or retention basin when required. Staff and City Plan Commission recommended approval subject to certain conditions. Stan Harris, Public Works Department, gave a report on the storm water improvements for Line Creek. Area residents spoke in opposition of the project.

Amending the Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, by enacting a new chapter to be numbered and known as Chapter 39, Arterial Street Impact Fees, which imposes arterial street impact fees on all new development in the City, north of the Missouri River; and establishing the effective date.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A THIRD COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
A third committee substituted was submitted on the ordinance. Patricia Jensen, Assistant City Attorney, explained to the committee the changes that were made. Councilman Ford stated that he changed the effective date from January from 2001 to May 1, 2002. He gave reasons why the effective date was changed. He stated It has always been his position that the city should not proceed with an impact fee north until the impact fee for the south part of the city catches up that there be matching general funds for the impact fee. After discussing the issue with other council members it seems clear that at least it won 't be a possibility for 2001 fiscal year and there will be a better chance in getting the council consensus. once there's a city wide impact fee. The developers need a certainty when the impact fee will come into effect, so they will do their planning. and this will give them plenty of time, knowing that the impact fee is over 18 months away to pull building permits and complete development. It will also get us away from the issue of phasing in the impact fee. The percentage is 75% for example single family residence, the impact fee will be $1073.00 which is a savings of a few dollars from previously. Councilman Nash, thank Councilman Ford for his work that he input regarding the impact fee. Jim Bowers, Attorney, representing the Northland Impact Fee Coalition, stated he has reviewed the third committee substitute. He spoke in support of the ordinance. Committee recommended approval of the ordinance.
