The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners on Thursday approved a rezoning request and preliminary plans for a new residential neighborhood near the southern edge of Overland Park.

Where exactly: The “Loch Lloyd Estates- Blue Valley” subdivision will occupy roughly 62 acres on the northeast corner of 175th Street and Kenneth Road.

  • The site neighbors an existing subdivision by the same developer — the Stonehaven at Loch Lloyd residential development on the east side of the Missouri state line.

Project details: The neighborhood will include 23 residential lots, each ranging from 2 to 3.05 acres in size.

  • The development will be a private, gated neighborhood.
  • The subdivision’s streets would connect back to Wallace Way.

Rezoning logistics: The property fell under Rural District (RUR) zoning, and the project applicant proposed a rezoning to Planned Residential Neighborhood 2 District (PRN-2) zoning.

  • The applicant also asked for a plat exception to allow the building of a 2,800-foot-long cul-de-sac street in the neighborhood.
  • Per county regulations, the longest a cul-de-sac street can be in residential developments is 700 feet long.

What’s next? The board unanimously approved the preliminary plan, rezoning request and plat exception for the development.

  • The applicant will bring a final development plan for the subdivision back to the board at a later meeting.
