City to pick up expense of trash bin enclosure

At city expense, The World Company will include an enclosure for trash Dumpsters in a planned expansion of its headquarters in the 600 block of New Hampshire Street.

City commissioners approved the site plan for the west half of the project Tuesday, though details of the Dumpster agreement have yet to be negotiated.

Three Dumpsters now sit on the old post office property, which will become part of the project. City officials do not want the Dumpsters moved into the alley.

Study session planned

City commissioners agreed Tuesday to a study session on housing issues at 9 a.m. Nov. 15.

Kansas University student leaders wanted the study session after a Nov. 1 meeting of the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission.

Planners will discuss how many unrelated people should be allowed to live under a single roof in the city's single-family residential areas.

Moratorium sought

Lawrence city commissioners have been asked to temporarily halt development in the area south of 23rd Street, north of the Wakarusa River, west of Louisiana Street and east of Kasold Drive

Indian Hills Neighborhood leaders first want a development plan completed and infrastructure built.
