PV moves Monday’s City Council meeting to SM East, releases FAQ on planning for Mission Valley area

In anticipation of a crowd that could near 200, Prairie Village has announced it will move its Monday, Feb. 6, City Council meeting to the SM East cafeteria. The city has also put together a helpful FAQ explaining what the council will be considering at the meeting, as well as how comprehensive planning processes work. The FAQ also address questions the city has received about the possibility of Kansas City Christian purchasing the site and how rezoning would work. Download the four-page FAQ here (UPDATED: The city made a change to the FAQ document, and we uploaded the new version at 1:30 p.m. Thursday).

The city sent us this note about the meeting move last night:

The City has announced that the Council Committee and the City Council meetings scheduled for Monday, February 6, 2011 have been moved to a new location to allow for a greater public attendance. The meeting will be held in the Cafeteria of Shawnee Mission East (7500 Mission Road, Prairie Village, Kansas), please use entrance #3 from the main courtyard. The Council Committee meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will allow for public comment on the proposed 84th Street and Mission Road Comprehensive Plan Amendment item. The City Council meeting will begin at its regularly scheduled time of 7:30 p.m.
 
The City has also received a number of calls related to exactly what items will be considered by the Council Committee and the City Council. The City Council will be considering “approval of agreements with Consensus Consulting and Confluence for the completion of the 84th Street and Mission Road Comprehensive Plan.” 
 
Some members of the public have thought the City Council would be considering a rezoning request related to the former Mission Valley School site. The City has not received an application for rezoning on the former school site or any proposed development plan for the site. The City of Prairie Village has approved a moratorium on all rezoning requests for the proposed 84th Street and Mission Road Comprehensive Plan Amendment study area (including the former Mission Valley School site). To eliminate any confusion regarding the issue under consideration, the City staff has provided answers to some frequently asked questions. Additional information about the 84th Street and Mission Road Comprehensive Plan Amendment can be found on the City’s website.
