Atchison city commissioners voted Monday 10/19/20 to approve the construction contract for the Arbor Land addition to the Brookdale subdivision in northwest Atchison.
All four of the commissioners participating in the meeting approved the contract, which was awarded to Engemann Drainage Company, Inc. out of Troy in the amount of $1,192,126.32. The contract authorizes the building of infrastructure – streets, utilities, drainage, etc. – for up to 48 new residential lots in the subdivision. Commissioner J. David Farris was absent from the meeting.
The project is backed by city issued general obligation bonds though the repayment is coupled with a newly created benefit district and a special assessment on the properties in the new subdivision. Commissioners on Monday also approved the re-zoning of the Arbor Lane property from Agriculture to Residential.
Construction is expected to begin in the next couple of weeks.
