During its meeting today the Sedalia City Council will hear a request to change a property located on South Harrison Avenue from single residential to apartment house district.
Developer Nathan Beard is proposing a rezoning application for 310 S. Harrison Ave., to build an 1,890-square-foot duplex in addition to keeping the current 900-square-foot single family residence.
While Beard believes this will allow for investment in the neighborhood and possible new development, several residents in the area are opposing the measure, saying the measure may damage the neighborhood. During its meeting on the subject the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission voted 4 to 3 to recommend denial of the request.
During the meeting council will also:
• Hear a presentation from the Blue Ribbon Committee.
• Vote to approve an ordinance allowing the manufacture of armor-piercing projectiles for rifle calibers. The city received a request from Sierra Bullets to amend its zoning codes to allow for the production of these bullets in an M-2 Heavy Industrial District. The Planning and Zoning Commission recently voted to recommend approving the ordinance.
• Vote to approve an ordinance accepting an agreement with Engineering Surveys and Services related to the city’s Stormwater Master Plan project.
• Vote to approve an ordinance that would change the hours of a no-parking restriction from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday on the south side of East Sixth Street between South Engineer and South Harrison avenues. The Citizens Traffic Advisory voted to recommend approval of the measure.
• Vote to approve a proposal from Engineering Surveys and Services for design work for the replacement of the sidewalk on the north side of Third Street from South Ohio Avenue to the nearest alley; $8,500.
• Vote to approve a proposal from Engineering Surveys and Services for design work for the replacement of the sewer located in the alley between South Lamine and Osage avenues from Seventh Street to Broadway Boulevard, as part of the city’s ongoing $30 million sewer project; $8,000.
• Vote to approve an ordinance for an agreement between the city and Vital Support Systems for IT support services; $6,000.
• Vote to approve the purchase of 25 Dell Desktop computers; $16,325.
