The Blue Springs Planning Commission meets the second and fourth Monday of the month. The commission met Monday, Oct. 27, 2008, and took the following action (unanimous unless otherwise noted): Commission members Susan Culpepper, Allen Franklin, and Joe Haney were absent.


• After a public hearing, the commission accepted and recommended to the City Council proposed changes to the existing Unified Development Code, which included several zoning changes and the creation of design standards.


• Approved a site plan and design review for Kohl’s, a 118,000-square-foot store at the Adams Dairy Landing project. Architects and planners for the store said the store has been reduced 25 percent in size and would be a smaller store than some, including the Independence facility. However, a spokesperson for the store said the same items will be sold at the store but the inventory will be smaller. Also, there will be only one entrance into the store.
