A new Menards home improvement store is on the drawing board for an area west of the Schlitterbahn water park.
Zoning for the new store is on the Unified Government Commission meeting agenda at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 1 at City Hall, Commission Chambers, 701 N. 7th St., Kansas City, Kansas. The existing agricultural zoning would be changed to a planned general business district.
The 210,754-square-foot retail store is on almost 30 acres of land, according to the UG planning documents in the agenda. The address listed, 1301 N. 98th St., is east of Village West and I-435, near 98th and State Avenue. To the north is the Dairy Farmers of America building.
According to agenda information, there will be a retail store, outdoor landscape and garden area, a lumber warehouse, outdoor sidewalks connecting to 98th Street and a multi-purpose trail behind the property.
About 200 new jobs are expected to be created, not including local construction jobs to build the store, according to agenda information.
