Plans for a small townhouse development just east of downtown Overland Park cleared an early hurdle Monday with the city planning commission’s decision to allow rezoning that would allow a change in the city’s regulating plan that governs streets in the area.

Applicant Jamie Mahoney has submitted plans for 32 multi-family units and two single-family homes on 2.14 acres at 6901 and 6815 W. 81st Street, about a block east of Metcalf.
