Shoal Creek Valley Neighborhood Plan

Post by SWFan » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:20 pm

Looks like they have plans to put in a bunch of residential in a large chunk of farmland bounded by Shoal Creek Parkway, Flintlock, 76th Street, and MO-152.

We live near that area and I've always wondered why there was farmland nestled there as well as across Shoal Creek to the west when developments are springing up miles to the north.

You put that many houses there and there better be a plan to help with traffic on 152, it's already a mess now IMO.

There's no fix, this will be the third major round of road widening and reconfiguration over I-35. I lived in Liberty during the first one and remember when walmart moved into Kansas City. At the pace of growth the newest bridge project will help for no more than 10 years, probably less.

Need to add public transit and reduce the space for cars to help with traffic.

My guess is that the large parcel in question was long-time family farm and the owners were reluctant to sell for emotional reasons. What finally happens is the primary title holder goes into a nursing home, or dies, and the heirs, who might not even live in the area any longer sell off the land for a big payout.

Land is being cleared at 108th and Eastern Ave. also. Can someone find the sight plan? Although most of this traffic will probably use 435.

Tree clearing east of Eastern Ave. south of 108th too. Lots of new houses going up north of mo152.
