Development at Indian Creek - Black Bob Library corner
The NW Corner of Indian Creek Pkwy & BlackBob in Olathe is now posted to be rezoned to build a 4-story apartment development project in a space more suited for green space to absorb rain water during heavy rainstorms. (It was 411 apartments, but it is now down to 371 apartments!) Even though the library will need to be demolished, there has to be a more sustainable and practical use of this property.
While it's hard to envision, this project will take up the NW corner of Indian Creek & Black Bob where the library currently stands, the green lot there between the library and Marco's Pizza and extend all the way west up the hill to the back of the duplexes which will cover the maintenance/old wastewater treatment facility.
This proposed project will also create a daily traffic nightmare for the existing residents in the area. Is this progress? We think not, it's cramming too much development into space not suited, or as residents made it abundantly clear, wanted in this area. Will they put in a new stoplight at Indian Creek Parkway and Blackbob? What about flooding? We understand, the City wants to sell this property, but consideration should be taken into account. Many residents attending the meeting with developers expressed their opposition to the project.
Help us get together and fight this.
After you have signed this petition, we strongly encourage everyone to contact the Mayor and local councel.
