Two public meetings planned Wednesday on future of Indian Springs

Two public meetings are planned on Wednesday, April 19, concerning the future of the Indian Springs mall site.

One public meeting will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Neighborhood Resource Center, 4953 State Ave., Kansas City, Kansas, and another public meeting will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Central Office, 2010 N. 59th St., Kansas City, Kansas.

Both meetings are open to the public. The 4 p.m. meeting is one that is required for planning and zoning issues. The 6 p.m. meeting is a continuation of a Unified Government public meeting last week. Many people attended the meeting last week to make comments.

A vote on the Indian Springs proposal is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27, in the Commission Chambers, City Hall, 701 N. 7th St., Kansas City, Kansas.

According to a UG news release, at the 6 p.m. meeting, there will be a brief presentation by Lane4 Development on the proposed 26-acre light industrial flex-tech proposal. Also at the 6 p.m. meeting will be Commissioners Jane Philbrook, Melissa Bynum, Harold Johnson and UG staff.

The flex-tech proposal is a light industrial building on the south side of the 90-acre Indian Springs site. According to developers, there would be mixed retail development on the north side, although no specific plans have been announced for it yet.

According to the UG, topics to be discussed at the 6 p.m. meeting include what’s proposed for the 26 acres; what’s the next step in the planning process for future development of remaining acreage if the proposed plan is approved, and what are community members’ opinions on what they want at this Indian Springs site and how they want the commission to handle this process.

    Why isn’t the mayor going to be there ? Probably because he is up for reelection this year and doesn’t want to jeopardize his chances of being reelected !

    Why would the mayor be there? None of the comissioners that are against it attended either.
