Annexation proposal remains stalled

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

The proposed Windmill Creek subdivision east of Platte City, the developer of which has indicated a desire to be voluntarily annexed into the city, has not been resubmitted by developer William Mann

Mann's recent proposal for voluntary annexation and a preliminary plat were returned by the city because of a clerical error on the forms.

On Tuesday, Jason Metten, Platte City administrator, confirmed the city has not yet seen new paperwork from Mann. Metten said Mann may be studying the infrastructure at the site.

Meanwhile, Metten said he has been working on the water and sewer plans for the area.

The proposed development is east of Interstate 29, south of Hwy. 92 and connects to Roanridge Road near the I-29 and Interstate 435 interchange.

The proposal would annex 81.26 acres into Platte City. The development would consist of 140 single family homes and 18 duplexes. The development will also include some commercial property along Hwy. 92.

The property is currently owned by WB Seven, L.L.C. The registered agent for the L.L.C. is William Mann and one of the organizers is Keith Hicklin. Hicklin is also the city attorney for Platte City.

As first reported by The Landmark, the proposal that was originally submitted in October was returned by the city because Mann did not sign the proposal as the registered agent of the property owner.

Mann also developed the Platte Valley Plaza in Platte City and is currently developing the Tracy Highlands project in Tracy.
