The second proclamation was also naming October as Colonial Heritage Month and was presented to Jane Debenport of the Governor Samuel Mathews Chapter of the Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century to honor and recognize our nation’s indebtedness to “our great Colonial ancestors, whose principles of virtue, courage and patriotism led to the formation of our great country…”
The Planning & Zoning portion of the meeting contained five P&Z items for council approval including the new CVS pharmacy to be built in Belton, more than 100 single family homes to be built here along with a subdivision of duplexes.
CVS Pharmacy will be built at 2849 North Main St. in Belton, adjacent to Walgreens where the existing Valero/Belton Grocery and Spa de Miell currently stand. Those structures will be demolished and be replaced with CVS.
58 homes will be constructed on nearly 18 acres on the west side of Connell St., east of the existing Liberty Valley Subdivision phases I and II.
An additional 58 homes will be built on slightly more than 30 acres west of Dunnn’s Canyon Rd and Lake Road intersection.
An undisclosed amount of duplexes will be built on a nearly 19 acre tract of land located west of Connell near Hwy. 190.
The remaining P&Z item on the agena was the addition of an antique store on the north side of the existing home at 407 N. Pearl St.
The final agenda item was presented by public works director Mike Hubor for the construction of a 16” water line to be installed from Sparta Rd. to Chisholm Trail Pkwy. The water line will alleviate some low water pressure issues by the current affected subdivisions and feed the new aforementioned subdivisions that are in the works. Councilmembers authorized Sam Listi, city manager, to execute an agreement with Kasberg, Patrick & Associates (KPA) for professional services related to construction. Hubor hopes the project will be completed by June of 2014.
City Council meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday at the Harris Community Center. Agendas can be found on the City’s website.
