After almost an hour of back-and-forth discussion Monday night, the newly seated Overland Park City Council voted to approve sales tax exemption bonds for the second phase of the much-watched Promontory development.

Developers say they are aiming to begin work on the second phase of the $97.5 million project near 91st Street and Metcalf Avenue as early as this month.
