KC: No application yet from Tomahawke

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

The developers of the proposed Lake at Tomahawke Ridge development have yet to submit their proposal for annexation and rezoning to the City of Kansas City.

Virginia Walsh, development management division manager with Kansas City, said the city has not yet received an application for the Tomahawke development.

Previously, Chris Byrd, attorney for developer Tim Dougherty and majority property owner Hal Swaney, told The Landmark they expected to submit the application around mid-March to early April for annexation and rezoning of the property north of 92 Highway along Winan Road.

Byrd did not return a call seeking comment before deadline.

The current proposal for the development calls for the construction of 655 homes on approximately 300 acres.

Byrd previously said the process of annexation and rezoning could take around six months to complete.

After being submitted, the city planning commission would need to approve the proposal before moving to the planning and zoning committee. The proposal would then be discussed by the city council.

The proposal for the development was previously denied by the Platte County Planning and Zoning Commission in August and the Platte County Commission denied the proposal in October.

The developers then filed a lawsuit against the county in November. The developers also began discussions with Kansas City to annex the property for the development in October.
