Amending Chapter 65, Revised Ordinances of Kansas City, Missouri, 1956, commonly known as the Zoning Ordinance, is hereby amended by enacting a new section to be known as Section 65.010A2350, rezoning an area generally located east of State Line Road, south of 39th Street, west of Southwest Trafficway, and north of Westport Road from District R-2b (two-family dwelling) to District R-2a (two- family dwelling - low density).


PLANNING AND ZONING COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Councilman Hernandez abstained on this ordinance. Patty Elbert, City Development Department, stated at the last committee hearing there was a question about a property owner at 4004 Wyoming. The staff has checked and confirmed that the property owner would be eligible to apply for a Certificate of Legal Non-Conforming Uses. There are now 35 parcels that contain duplexes and are non- conforming today and will be non-conforming if this rezoning is passed. However, they may be eligible for a CLU if they apply for it. One of the 35 land owners has a CLU. Currently there are 24 non-conforming multi-family parcels. Nine of the 24 have received CLUs. All property owners will be notified of the zoning change by certified letters and door hanger. Also, a notice will be published in the Daily Record twice. It is hoped that when the letter is received, the property owners will contact the City to apply for a Certificate of Legal Non-Conforming Use. Between 30-35 additional parcels may be affected by this ordinance. Kathy Hauser, Law Department, stated that because of other factors, besides lot size, we can not guarentee that all property owners will be granted a CLU. George Nierzelle, President of Volker Neighborhood Association, spoke in favor of this ordinance.

PLANNING AND ZONING COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD OFF AGENDA"
Bill Hartman, City Development Department, stated the 1980 plan approved 43 residents for this site and the 1990 plan proposes 55 residents. The applicant has agreed to reduce the number of people who would reside at this location to 43. Therefore, a plan amendment is not required. Harold Soulet, resident of the area, spoke in opposition to this ordinance. Kathy Hauser stated that if Renaissance West changes from a residential facility to a methadone or out-patient clinic or any other use, then a plan amendment would have to be submitted. The staff recommendation is that this ordinance is not neccessary and Renaissance West can proceed without it. Councilman Sharp stated that some restrictions have been placed on this facility that were not in place before. The restrictions include residential treatment only and no methadone or out-patient treatment. Mrs. Hauser stated that she will prepare a written communication to the Plans and Zoning Committee explaining why an ordinance is not needed and the restrictions placed on this site. A copy of the communication will be mailed to the people on the public hearing notice list from City Development. Aaron March, representing Renaissance West, stated they concur with the staff recommendations. Renaissance West will continue to work with the neighborhood to accept us as a good neighbor.

Calling an election on March 26, 1991, to submit to the electors of Kansas City an Amendment to the Charter of Kansas City adopted February 24, 1925, as amended, providing that all twelve council members be elected from districts, and recognizing this ordinance to be an emergency.


PLANNING AND ZONING COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Councilman Sharp stated that the sponsor is not here today. Mr. sharp spoke in favor of 12 council districts in Kansas City. Smaller districts make it easier for the average person to afford to run for office and to represent the interest of a smaller district to the full council. This will allow people to run for council seats without having to get funding from major special interest groups and major contributions with strings attatched.
