Rezoning an 80 acre tract of land generally bordered by the Missouri River on the north and west, I-29 to the east and railroad tracks (KCS/ I&MRL/ UP & BNSF) to the south, from District M1-5 to MPD, and approving a development plan which also serves as a preliminary plat, to allow for a mixed use development in two phases within 13 parcels.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Olofu Agbaji, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The current zoning on the site is M1-5. To the south is existing M1-5 zoning which allows for industrial uses. There are several buildings that sit above the railroad tracks and to the south of a large treed area. These buildings as well as proposed mixed use development will overlook the proposed development. The proposed MPD also serves as a preliminary plat. The plat proposes 13 lots and two tracts. The two tracts consist of Berkley Park on the north and Riverfront Road which will be a private drive. The plan proposes zero setbacks allowing for a more urban development. The plan maintains the current road network and provides for north / south connections developing a grid system allowing for view corridors to the Missouri River. This design creates 6 blocks (Parcels 1-6) of developable area, leaving two large parcels (Parcels 8&9) to the east adjacent to Interstate 29/35 and an additional large parcel (Parcel 12) located to the southwest. Four additional parcels (Parcels 7, 10, 11 and 13) include Berkley Park, detention and parking tracts/lots. The development of the plan is proposed in two phases. The first phase consists of Parcels 1 and 2, right-of-way dedication for all of Grand Boulevard, and the following proposed north/south roads: Gillis Street, the Commons and Lydia south of Grand. The first plat proposes to include Parcel 1 and 2, Berkley Park tract, and the Riverfront Road tract. The second phase consists of the remaining Parcels 3-13, and the remaining right-of-way. The timeline for phase one construction is to begin Fall 2014 and end Fall 2018, while the second phase is planned for a start of Fall 2016 and completion of Fall 2026. The development proposes open space within the north/south street rights-of-ways which will be passive park space. These areas which meet the standards for open space will be used toward the parkland dedication requirements. Other open space available to the development is the existing Berkley Park which lies to the north.

(14403-P-1).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Olofu Agbaji, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The request is for approval of a development plan to allow for multiple principle buildings on one lot and a commercial riding and boarding ranch.

She also layed out the framework for regional prosperity to include the need for new growth strategies. In connection, Ms. Carttar talked about the elements of a strong economy as it pertained to innovation and traded sectors of the said economy. Connecting the MARC analysis to the AdvanceKC objectives reported consistency. The MARC analysis validates the AdvanceKC strategic path moving forward.
