Public Hearing for Preliminary Development Plan for Lee’s Summit Fire Station No. 4
Council held a public hearing on the Preliminary Development Plan for Lee’s Summit Fire Station No. 4 proposed at 5031 NE Lakewood Way. The 12,189-square-foot building would replace the current Fire Station No. 4 located on Woods Chapel Road. The City (applicant) proposed an 18-foot setback from the right-of-way, a modification to the zoning district regulations that require a minimum 20-foot parking lot setback from the right-of-way. The parking lot layout is the result of the need to accommodate the turning movements of the fire apparatus and the desire to consolidate all parking stalls in a single location for security. The City Council approved the ordinance for the Preliminary Development Plan.
The next meeting will be May 24.
