Following a series of public hearings at the March 10th Board of Aldermen meeting, the Board approved the first readings of three ordinances which would allow for the development of senior housing developments known as Creekside Villas and Creekside Commons.
Jeff Handy, Jeff Handy Construction, is the developer of the proposed senior housing. The development site is generally located west of Sni-A-Bar Parkway on the north side of Sni-A-Bar Blvd.
Creekside Villas will include 26 multi-family units for occupants 55 or older. The maintenance provided community will include 2 bedroom/1 bathroom units on one level. Each unit will include 1,000 square feet with a covered front and back porch.
The Creekside Commons project will also feature 2 bedroom/1 bathroom units, with 35 units planned. If approved, construction will begin in fall of 2022 and be completed in fall of 2023.
In other business, the Board approved the purchase of a skid steer for the Public Works division.
Parks and Recreation Director Shannon Davies reported spring youth sports have begun, and are a welcome sight after many recreational activities were canceled in 2020.
The next regularly scheduled board meeting will be held Monday, May 24th at 7:00pm in Council Chambers of Grain Valley City Hall.
