With the Prairie Village Planning Commission’s vote to recommend approval of the Mission Chateau senior living community last Tuesday, neighborhood opponents of the project now have one week to collect signatures on a protest petition.

Should the group organizing against the development collect signatures from the property owners representing 20 percent or more of the total area required to be notified about the Special Use Permit application, it will take three-fourths of the Prairie Village governing body’s vote (as opposed to a simple majority) to approve the project.

Since the Prairie Village mayor as well as members of the City Council votes in matters related to Special Use Permit applications, there will be 13 people voting on the Mission Chateau issue. Which means that, should the protest petition be successful, four members of the Prairie Village governing body would have to vote against the project for it to be rejected.
