Woodlands zoning on Thursday’s UG Commission agenda

Also on agenda are public hearings on downtown campus plan, Mission Cliffs apartment development

Zoning for a redevelopment at The Woodlands racetrack at 97th and Leavenworth Road is on Thursday night’s Unified Government Commission meeting agenda. It will be a virtual meeting starting at 7 p.m.

Other items on the agenda include public hearings on the downtown campus redevelopment plan and on the Mission Cliffs apartment development.

The commission also is scheduled to vote on recommendations for CARES Act funding to various agencies in Wyandotte County. The county was eligible for about $37 million in funding.

Community grants from Hollywood Casino funds also are on the Thursday agenda. A total of about $492,000 will be given to local agencies.

The City Planning Commission approved the change of zone for the Woodlands area from agriculture and planned general business to limited business and general industrial district for a business park and neighborhood retail center. There is a plan for a warehouse at the site of the closed horse and dog track. The CPC vote was 7-1.

According to agenda information, the staff has received a letter in support of the warehouse project, along with individuals who appeared in support of it at the July 13 CPC meeting. Staff also received email and phone calls opposing the distribution center, along with people who appeared in opposition. Several neighbors opposed the project at a meeting held June 29.
