An Overland Park City Council committee took another step this week to move forward on future development at the the closely watched Bluhawk site. 

At its meeting Wednesday, the city’s Finance, Administration and Economic Committee approved an amendment to Bluhawk’s development agreement that, in essence, serves as a bit of financial security for developer Price Brothers for the second phase of work at the nearly 280-acre site.
