  • Adams Dairy Landing is getting a new business, but it is not the sit down restaurant many were hoping for.
    The Blue Springs Planning Commission approved the rezoning, amended concept plan and final plans for an area of Adams Dairy Landing Monday.
    The area is north of Coronado Drive and east of Adams Dairy Parkway near Chipotle, Arby’s and Mattress Firm.
    Scott Allen, community development director for the city, said the proposal from RED Development essentially divides one lot into two smaller lots. On the first lot, Pacific Dental will build office space. The second area is now being reserved for restaurant, retail or office building use.
    Originally, the concept plan called for three restaurants, presumably something other than fast food, two fast food restaurants and a car care facility. The amended concept plan will allow for a multi-tenant retail building. Allen said the rezoning is merely a formality because of the Restricted Overlay designation that is tied to the concept plan as well as the originally approved list of uses.
    Ken Billups, Planning Commission chair, said that although he has nothing against office space or the dental office, he has concerns about the future of the promised sit down restaurants. A representative with RED Development said the company is currently speaking with several restaurants and said more will eventually come to the shopping area.
    “I think this is something that will come up in the community as we go forward because I know we were all looking forward to the restaurants,” Billups said. “I was just wondering what the status of the restaurants was going in there.”
    Allen said because the site is not being fully utilized by restaurants as originally planned, some of the proposed parking could be removed to make room for additional landscaping along Coronado. However, he said, the developers will have to be careful since the parking is “somewhat speculative” for three of the pad sites and that more parking could be needed in the future.
