A Small Victory

The Monticello residents achieved a small victory last night at the Shawnee Planning Commission.

The Commission voted not to recommend a change to the Land Use Guide for the area of 75th St to 79th St along the "new" Monticello Rd.

It's a small victory. The Council could still ignore the recommendation. Someone can still come in and request a zoning change for the area or part of it.

The hang up is going to be the two new arterials intersecting at 75th and "new" Monticello. That is, unless the Monticello residents can figure out a way to stop the reconstruction and realignment of the road.
