CARNP public hearing continued

October 29, 2009

OLATHE—The Johnson County Board of Commissioners has continued its public hearing to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, to receive comments regarding three proposed changes to the county’s Comprehensive Arterial Road Network Plan.

The hearing began Oct. 15, attracting a dozen speakers and lasting more than 10 hours. The commission plans to reconvene the public hearing at its Nov. 19 business session for consideration of the CARNP proposals.

The business session takes place in the commission’s hearing room on the third floor of the Johnson County Administration Building, 111 South Cherry Street, in downtown Olathe.

The amendments, as recommended by the Planning Commission, include:

• Modifying the CARNP map to remove a “corridor to be determined” study area shown in the southeast portion of Johnson County; and,

• Establishing a CARNP Type I designation on the map for 179th Street as a complete connection between Metcalf and Nall avenues.

The planning staff and Planning Commission also recommend the establishment of a CARNP Type 1 designation of 183rd Street as a complete connection between Nall Avenue and Mission Road

County commissioners also will discuss a planning staff recommendation to establish a CARNP Type I designation for Nall Avenue as a complete connection between 167th and 175th streets. That proposal, however, was rejected by the Planning Commission.

Written comments regarding the CARNP recommendations can be sent by email to or by mail to the Johnson County Planning, Development, and Codes Department, 111 S. Cherry Street, Olathe, KS 66061.

More information is available by calling the department at (913) 715-2200.
