We, the undersigned nearby residents of the Ranchmart South shopping center, oppose the planned mixed-use rezoning request at the southeast corner of Mission Road and 95th Street based upon these statements:
- The density of the apartments exceed the Overland Park Comprehensive Plan for the surrounding residential areas which are designated as Low-Density (Greater than 1 and less than or equal to 5 units per acre). This development of 210 units on 4.344 acres will have a density of 48.34 units per acre, and
- The proposed Mixed-Use development does not provide a sufficient subzone to buffer the adjacent single-family subdivision. An existing pedestrian path (sidewalk) in the southeast corner leading to Mohawk Dr. along with two small tracts of grass designated as “pocket parks” comprise the “civic zone”. This subzone is 0.064 acres or 1% of the 4.344 acre “core zone”, and
- The transition of the development does not fit the character of the existing neighborhood. The height of the three-story southwest wing at 45 feet to the top of the pitched roof is significantly higher than the adjacent single-family homes on 96th street, with only a 40-foot setback from the property line. The tallest portion of the structure, 77 feet above grade, will have a setback of only 101 feet from the adjacent property line.
