GRANDVIEW - With very little fanfare, the Grandview City Council approved a developer's request for an adjustment in his real estate development plan.
The Council, which recently gave its approval for Warren Bogart's development of Chula Vista Estates on Wilson Highway, agreed Monday night to an amendment to Bogart's original subdivision plan.
Bogart submitted a preliminary plat amendment in order to add more acreage to his original plan to construct a 32-single family and duplex residential development on his Wilson Highway property.
Last night, Bogart sought permission to include an additional 24 acres, located adjacent to the existing development site. Council's approval will mean the addition of a street, as well as constructing a water main along the east property line. Also, plans will have to be made to extend sewer lines in the existing Deangela Court area to facilitate the development of property to the east of Bogart's development.
The Grandview Council had given its approval to the original development plan, which included a cul-de-sac. Bogart's new plan calls for the elimination of the cul-de-sac and straightening of the streets in the area, said Grandview City Manager Jim Sewell.
He said the property is scheduled to be annexed into the city in the near future.
In a separate action, the Council set a public hearing date to take comments on a proposed vacating of a street near the Grandview Dairy Queen on Wine County Road.
Grandview Dairy Queen owner Ken Herber wants to make improvements to his business, which includes additional parking and expansion of his existing building. Herber is seeking permission to develop a portion of an adjacent city street right-of-way along the west side of Wine Country Road, said Sewell.
Herber is asking the city to vacate the right-of-way, which is approximately 250 feet long and about 18 feet wide. Sewell said Herber would like the city to transfer ownership of the strip of land to him. Sewell said the transfer would be based on fair market value of the land.
Before the vacation of the street can be approved, the city must hold a public hearing to take input from other property owners in the area, Sewell said.
He said the Council had earlier agreed to review vacation of under-developed properties along Wine Country Road on a case-by-case basis.
The Council set the public hearing for May 2, at 7:30 p.m.
A request for a preliminary plat and development agreement for the Westridge Addition from Leon Darby was also given Council approval last night.
The plat agreement calls for a subdivision development of 20-single family residential lots in Grandview near Euclid Road.
