A developer's request for annexation into the city of Lawrence goes before the Douglas County Commission tonight.
Commissioners will discuss the possible annexation of nearly 160 acres at the northwest corner of North 1800 and East 900 roads north of the Lecompton Interstate 70 interchange.
The annexation is being sought by a development group led by Steve and Duane Schwada and Stonewell Farms LLC for a business park. Last month the Lawrence City Commission approved a resolution asking the county to decide whether annexation would hinder or prevent growth in the area.
The commission also plans to:
¢ Consider approving mountain bike trails at Wells Overlook Park.
¢ Hold public hearings on vacating and designating as minimum maintenance East 700 Road from North 1800 Road to North 1900 Road.
Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. on the second floor of the courthouse, 1100 Mass.
