The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners is set this week to potentially sign off on a new 43-home residential subdivision in south Overland Park.
Where exactly: The housing development, dubbed Century Farms, would be built near the southwest corner of 167th Street and Quivira Road.
- It includes 43 single-family homes on roughly 17 acres of land overall.
- The site neighbors Coffee Creek and is within a mile of the Johnson County Executive Airport.
- On Switzer Road and 167th Street, the neighborhood is also in close proximity to the site of ongoing infrastructure improvement projects that began earlier this summer.
What the project entails: Homes in the Century Farms neighborhood will utilize designs from five different builders.
- Floor plans range from one- to two-stories, with 3 to 5 bedrooms and a total square footage in the range of 2,000 to 5,000 square feet.
- The neighborhood also includes amenities, such as a pool, a pickleball court and a neighborhood garden where residents can rent planter boxes.
Preceding steps: The final plat for the Century Farms project initially came before the Overland Park Planning Commission at its July 11 meeting.
- The city’s planning commission at that time approved the item unanimously as part of its consent agenda.
- The Overland Park City Council later approved the project at its Aug. 1 meeting.
- Because of its proximity to the Johnson County Executive Airport, the Century Farms proposal has also been reviewed by Johnson County’s Airport Commission — which also approved the project.
What happens next with Century Farms plan
- Following the Airport Commission’s recommendation, Johnson County’s Board of County Commissioners will take a final vote on the Century Farms subdivision at Thursday’s meeting.
- The board will meet at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.
