A high-density, out-of-place, out-of-character housing project... in the very middle of our community? K Highway, 76th Street, and Nevada Avenue becoming thoroughfares for hundreds thousands of additional car trips every day?
It may be difficult to believe, but that is exactly what developer Brian Mertz of PC Homes is *still* trying to do. And without your efforts and support, it just might happen!

On December 2, the Chapel Ridge Planned Residential rezoning and preliminary plat was APPROVED through a technicality. Despite having never received a single YES vote from any other county official, just one person - Jason Brown, Platte County Presiding Commissioner - was able to "railroad" Chapel Ridge to approval with just his one vote. See our facts page for more information on how this technicality was carried out, and on the appeal effort now underway to reverse this controversial and ill-advised decision.
