Action taken Oct. 27, 2008.

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.
