Executive Summary:

An ordinance approving the Final Plat approval of Stone Canyon, 2nd Plat, in Independence, Jackson County, Missouri. Case No. 18-320-06.

Background:

D&D Development, LLC requests Final Plat approval for Stone Canyon - 2nd Plat to construct eight single-family residences on eight new lots ranging from 10,400 square feet to 11,900 square feet in area.  This proposal will add lots to the existing 106 lot development, bringing the development up to 114 lots.  Two lots will be added south of Stone Canyon Drive at the western edge of the plat and six lots added on the north side of Stone Canyon Drive at the eastern side of the plat near White Sands Court.  The proposed plat will be created from portions of the existing golf course (owned by Jackson County Land Trust).  Development of the six eastern most lots will require the relocation of a green and golf cart path.

 

According to the City Fire Code, developments of one- or two-family dwellings where the number of dwelling units exceeds 100 should be provided with separate and approved fire apparatus access roads.  Currently, there is only one access into this development.  According to the developer, the City has issued permits on 100 lots in this development, and a windshield survey by Staff confirms that at least 99 lots have, in the very least, began development.  A Developer’s Agreement that includes a provision for a second entrance has been submitted and has been submitted for Council approval in tandem with this Plat.
