MORE SELF STORAGE!!! I'll save the pontification and refer you to my post about self-storage being zoned at the southeast corner of Green Hills and Barry Road. A rezoning has been approved for the southwest corner of Green Hills and Old Tiffany Springs Road.
The proposed land use will be climate controlled storage with some four story and two story apartment buildings.
The site will sit above the existing houses in Tiffany Place and Autumn Ridge. This is a cut section looking north with the existing single family houses on the left/west and Green Hills Road on the right/east.
The climate controlled storage building will look like this. It appears that the facility facade on Green Hills and Old Tiffany Springs will be one story but the rear will be two story.
The two large, four story apartment buildings will look like this.
The two story apartment buildings abutting Tiffany Place and Autumn Ridge will look like this.
I don't know the specifics but you can go the the rezoning ordinance page and read the "staff report" in the attachments to get the details on number of units, size, etc.
One thing I don't understand about real estate valuation and property tax law is now that the property has been rezoned from agricultural to master planned development with commercial uses, will there be an increase in the tax base?
The 90 or whatever acres across the street is zoned B3-3 which means that the following businesses uses are approved as noted with a "P" in the zoning table under B3. If an "S" is shown, I think that means that use needs to be approved by a special use permit.
Looking at the Platte County GIS page, the 90 or whatever acres north of MenardsTM with commercial type zoning is assessed at $8,426.00 which means the County only collects next to nothing even though the KCI Corridor TIF just spent millions to improve Green Hills Road.
I pay more in taxes (I think because County doesn't collect for the Lake so I write two checks and I don't remember the amounts) on my vacant 6,000 square feet Lake Waukomis lot which is zoned residential. Again, not sure how assessment law works but the way we use property taxes to fund local government and schools doesn't seem to make sense in this case when we know the value of 90 or whatever acres along an improved street with sewer, water, gas, and power is a heck of a lot more than a vacant residential lot.
It really won't make sense once that 90 acres is turned into more parking lots and drive up retail if you open your way of thinking about "growth" and development.....
