Council approves construction of Woodbridge Manor

On November 3, the City Council of Kansas City, Missouri, voted unanimously in favor of a contested rezoning and development plan for Woodbridge Manor, a 152-lot single-family residential development which will rest on 54 acres of land located west of Jackson Avenue, about one-quarter mile north of E. Red Bridge Road. Approval of the plan came just one week after a public hearing took place at the Planning, Zoning & Economic Development Committee on Oct. 26, wherein neighborhood residents protested and urged City Council members to reconsider the proposal.
