The Lenexa City Council has approved a new mixed-zoning development with single- and two-family homes, senior housing and space for offices or a day care at the northeast corner of 83rd Street and Monticello Road in Lenexa.

At its Tuesday night meeting, the council members present unanimously approved the developer’s request for rezoning, the project’s concept plan and the preliminary plat for the development, Bristol Highlands. The rezoning enables a “less intense development” — one with lower density — than prior zoning authorized, according to city documents related to the project.
