More duplex housing proposed for Eudora

Neighborhood would add houses, duplexes behind Greenway apts.

December 31, 2003

Developers are once again proposing duplex housing in Eudora, but the Meadows at 15th could be less controversial than recent multi-family proposals. The development of 16 dulplexes would back up to the Greenway Apartments near 15th Street and Kansas Highway 10. The Meadows at 15th would also include 35 single-family homes.
The Eudora Planning Commission will let neighbors comment during a public hearing at its Jan. 7 meeting. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at Eudora City Hall, 4 E. Seventh St.
The single-family homes would align to other single-family homes in the Whispering Meadows neighborhood. The developer contends it will create a nice transition from apartments to houses.
With buffering, that area made a nice spot for multi-family housing, said Planning Commission member Richard Campbell.
However, city planning consultant Sean Ackerson said annexation into the city would be necessary first.
