D. NEW BUSINESS

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Paul.

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: Kansas City Power and Light has approached the Walmart to install electric charging stations in their parking lot in the Shawnee Station West shopping center, located at 16100 West 65th Street.

The charging stations resemble a bollard between five and six feet in height. Each unit is placed between two parking stalls, and will have two charging receptacles. Use of the charging stations will be for the general public.

The location of the three charging stations is at the western end of the Walmart parking lot, at approximately the mid pint of the aisle. These spaces are adjacent to a landscaped area.

None of the stalls at the proposed locations are handicapped stalls. Walmart provides more parking than is required by code. If the applicant were to limit the use of the stalls for electric cars using the facility, it would not affect the overall parking at the shopping center. Aerial photography indicates that most patrons park further to the east and north nearer to the entrances to the store.

Kansas City Power and Light has entered into an agreement with the Walmart to install the charging stations. Installation is expected to occur immediately upon approval of the site plan.

Staff recommends approval of SP-27-15-09, a site plan for the installation of electric charging stations at Walmart, located at 16100 West 65th Street, subject to the following conditions:


CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Thank you. Is the applicant present? No? Does the Commission have any questions for the staff or… for the staff? Hearing none, is there a motion on this item? Commissioner Wise.

COMMISSIONER WISE: I’ll make a motion to approve SP-27-15-09; site plan for KCPL electric charging stations at Walmart, 16100 West 65th Street.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Thank you. Commissioner Braley.

COMMISSIONER BRALEY: Second that motion.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Motion and second to approve SP-27-15-09 a site plan for installation of electric charging stations at Walmart, all in favor.

COMMISSIONERS: Aye.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Opposed? Motion passes.


(Motion passes 8-0; Bienhoff and Hill absent)

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Item number 2 is: CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Paul.

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) has approached the Walmart Neighborhood Market to install electric charging stations in their parking lot in the Tomahawk shopping center, which is located at 11010 West 74th Terrace.

As with the previous site plan, the bollards of the charging stations resemble a bollard between five and six feet in height.

The location of the three charging stations is at the western end of the Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot. These spaces are adjacent to a landscaped area adjacent to Nieman Road.

None of the stalls at the proposed locations are handicapped stalls. Tomahawk Shopping Center provides more parking than is required by code. Aerial photography indicates that most patrons park further to the east and north nearer to the entrances to the store.

KCP&L has entered into an agreement with the Walmart to install the charging stations. Installation is expected to occur immediately upon site plan approval.

Staff recommends approval of SP-28-15-09, a site plan for the installation of electric charging stations at Walmart Neighborhood Market, located at 11010 West 74th Terrace, subject to the following conditions:


CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Thank you. Are there any questions for the staff on this item? Commissioner Wise.

COMMISSIONER WISE: Quick question Paul. So these, I assume this parking lot is entirely for Walmart. Is that pad-site for Pegah’s is right there and I was wondering about the adjacency to the potential future site.

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: Actually the parking is for the shopping center as a whole; so they are shared parking throughout the shopping center so Pegah’s, the former Pegah’s location won’t have their own parking; they’ll be able to utilize parking throughout the center.

COMMISSIONER WISE: Thank you.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Commissioner Peterson.

COMMISSIONER PETERSON: Similar vein of questioning; would that impact, because I know that both of those businesses are no longer in business and will that impact anybody moving into that site, because that is where the parking occurs.

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: It shouldn’t impact the parking; there’s plenty on-site to handle new customers and depending on who goes on pads, there may end up being one business that locates on both of those locations; or as they come in with a new site plan there’ll probably be a different configuration of parking and more parking probably than the carwash had, it had a lot of drive-thru lanes and access points.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Paul, I don’t know if I remember this from the other stations or whether from talking with somebody but Walmart pays for the power for the first two years and then they would put some kind of credit card system on it?

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: That’s correct.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Okay. Is there any other questions for the staff? If not, is there a motion on this item? Commissioner Peterson.

COMMISSIONER PETERSON: I move that we approve SP-28-15-09, the site plan for the KCP&L electric charging stations at 11010 West 74th Terrace.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: It does say 09, on my other sheet it says 08.

(Inaudible)

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: And so if I’ll just interrupt for a minute, the last motion that we had I read it as 08, but it should be 09. So, is there a second? Commissioner Specht.

COMMISSIONER SPECHT: I second the motion.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Motion and second so approve SP-28-15-09, a site plan for the installation of electric charging stations at the Shawnee Neighborhood Walmart, all in favor?

COMMISSIONERS: Aye.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Opposed? Motion passes.


(Motion passes 8-0; Bienhoff and Hill absent)

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Is there any other business or does the staff have any business for the Commission?

E. OTHER BUSINESS

PLANNING DIRECTOR CHAFFEE: Staff has no other business.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Does the Commission have any business for the staff? Commissioner Willoughby, do you have a motion to adjourn?

F. ADJOURNMENT

COMMISSIONER WILLOUGHBY: Sure, I move that we adjourn.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Thank you. Commissioner Smith.

COMMISSIONER SMITH: Second that motion.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Motion and second to adjourn, all in favor.

COMMISSIONERS: Aye.

CHAIRMAN BOGINA: Opposed? Motion passes.


(Motion passes 8-0; Bienhoff and Hill absent)
