The project is known as "Zona Rosa" All of the ordinances and resolution involves 94 acres at the southwest corner of I-29 and Missouri 152 between Barry Road and Congress. Ordinance 011699 will amend the Land Use Plan of the KCI Airport and recommends a combination of commercial and residential. An outline of the current approved plan was shown on the overhead projector which was approved in 1998. Each ordinance will approve 15 separate development plans to be independent districts (see fact sheet for each district) which can proceed at different times and different ownerships. Ordinance 011701 amends the currently approved 35 acres by deleting all but the existing North American Savings Bank site and re-approves a GP plan for the bank.
