Continued Discussion of Narrow Lot Development




This agenda item is a follow-up to the tour of narrow lot examples from the September 8, 2021 CEDC meeting.  The tour and descriptions are included below for reference.  Main topics discussed during the tour included the following:


1. Open space

2. Architecture

3. Shared driveways to place garages behind units

4. Sidewalks on both sides of the street

5. On-street parking availability


Background from the September 8, 2021 CEDC Meeting:

There has been interest from the Council, development community and citizens of Lee's Summit in allowing single family projects on lots 50-40' width.  Traditionally, lots in Lee's Summit average 70' in width.  The Community and Economic Development Committee asked staff to organize a tour of existing narrow lot products to determine if this type of project is compatible within the context of the City.


The tour will consist of the following locations.


1. Begin at Lee's Summit City Hall

2. Edgewater at 8812 SW 8th Street, Blue Springs, MO

3. Arborwalk at 1021 SW Arborway Circle, Lee's Summit, MO

4. Older housing in Waldo- E 74th and Grand Ave, Kansas City, MO

5. Newer build on one lot in Mission- 5347 Lamar Ave, Mission KS

6. Older housing at 5347 Woodson Road, Mission KS
