Amending Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 80-190, District M-2 (Heavy Industry), and enacting in lieu thereof one new section of like number and subject matter to allow haunted houses.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS"
Virginia Walsh, City Development Department gave reasons why ordinance 030226 was held. She stated that it was at the request of the city council. Staff was instructed to identify areas that are zoned M-2b. The ordinance will define and permit haunted houses in District M-2. The ordinance relates to zoning and land use defining haunted houses. If an existing haunted house has a business license they will be permitted to remain within the zoned area (they must apply for a certificate of non-conformance within one year). The purpose of the ordinance is to encourage haunted houses to locate outside areas that are not productive to a particular land use.

030463
Approving an amendment to a previously approved preliminary plan in District PD/RA, R-4-O (Planned District/Agricultural, Low Apartments) on approximately a 36 acre tract of land generally located on the east side of Wornall Road approximately 180 feet south of Martha Truman Road, for the purpose of deleting an approximately 8 acre tract of land from said preliminary plan. (4031-PD-11)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA"
Ordinances 030463, 030464 and 030465 are related cases. Virginia Walsh, City Development Department stated that the ordinances were held to allow the Public Works Department to identify the estimated cost of the culvert on Holmes Road. Dion Waldon stated that the estimated cost is $600,000.00 for the replacement of the existing culvert. The cost of the culvert will correspond with the percentage of the project acreage. Councilman Nash asked if there are funds identified for the cost of the culvert. Councilman Fairfield stated that in speaking with Councilman Eddy that he (Councilman Eddy) wanted to explore ways to make the project go forth. Mr. Fairfield asked if a smaller amount could be used to make improvements to the culvert. Councilwoman Cooper expressed concern regarding interim money for the project. She state that if money is available design work could take about one year and construction could take about two or three years. The problem can't be looked at until the problem is fixed. Councilman Fairfield stated it is his understanding that the project is going to make a significant impact. There are existing problems that the neighborhood is concerned about. He also stated that the city should come up with a way to get the money for the project. Councilwoman McFadden-Weaver stated that she has received a report indicating the impact for the development is almost zero. The developer knows the concerns of the neighbors regarding the runoff and culvert. She believes that an "interim fix" is a waste of money, because rain cannot be controlled. Culverts are able to redirect rain. City staff should be able to come up with a plan with exact figures to fix the problem. It was the consensus of the committee to hold ordinances 030463, 030464 and 030465 for two weeks
