PLANNING COMMISSION QUESTIONS
Representing the applicant was Ryan Cook, Polsinelli Law Firm, 6201 College Boulevard, Overland Park. He noted that the applicant was in agreement with staff recommendations with the exception of one thing. He stated that his client has in the past, sodded the area that staff is requesting to be re-sodded and that it continues to die. He stated that his client has suggested perhaps filling the island with rock rather than sod.
Chairperson Bedora asked if this has been discussed with staff.
Ryan Cook answered not really, just now.
Commissioner Bogina asked if the island was in the right-of-way.
Deputy Planning Director Allmon answered that he believed that island was now the right-of-way.
Ryan Cook stated that his client has tried to sod the island a few times but it keeps dying, but that he did not know to what extent his client has tried to maintain it.
Deputy Planning Director Allmon stated that the island does get ran over quite frequently.
Chairperson Bedora asked if the area was curbed.
Deputy Planning Director Allmon answered yes.
Chairperson Bedora asked if it was because of the parking area and perhaps from equipment being parked on it.
Deputy Planning Director Allmon stated that he just knew that it was bare.
