Vote on Wyandotte Plaza CID postponed until May 17


The Unified Government Board of Commissioners were not able to approve the new Wyandotte Plaza community improvement district at tonight's meeting.

The Wyandotte Plaza CID would result in a new Price Chopper store and would replace the current store. Infrastructure improvements would also be made to the plaza, which is located at 78th Street and State Avenue.

However, Unified Government Mayor/CEO Joe Reardon said the item had to be moved to May 17.

"We're still in negotiations with the developer," Reardon said.

Under previously disclosed terms of the agreement, the project would cost $28 million to build. A one-percent CID sales tax would be added to items sold within the CID and Wyandotte Plaza.

Red Development LLC is the developer of the project.

Citizens were offered to make a comment during a public hearing session tonight. However, no one commented on the proposal.

Reardon said a third public hearing for the project - the first was held last month - will be conducted at the May 17 meeting.
