Raytown says it has received three responses to its request for development proposals for the downtown property where Wal-Mart once wanted to build a Neighborhood Market grocery store.
The 3.4-acre property is at 6200 Blue Ridge Boulevard.
The responses came from Flaherty Collins in Indianapolis, Carr Baier Crandall (CBC Real Estate Group) in Kansas City, and the Raytown Main Street Association.
The city staff will review the proposals within 60 days and present them, with recommendations to the Board of Aldermen, the city said in a news release. Their contents will be made public after the aldermen have done their review.
The proposed grocery store proved controversial but was approved by the aldermen after a marathon meeting in late May, but Wal-Mart withdrew its proposal only a few weeks later in mid-June.KC suspends licenses over synthetic drugs
Kansas City is taking action against two BP service stations and a package liquor store that allegedly sold synthetic drugs.
In a news release, the city said Millennium Super Stop, a package liquor store at 1501 Cleveland Ave., has agreed to a 90-day suspension of its liquor license. An initial 60-day suspension will last until Jan. 14, with the rest put on hold. The last 30 days won’t be served if there no more violations in the next year.
Separately, the city said Blue Ridge Petroleum LLC and Paseo Petroleum LLC have agreed to 30-day suspensions of their tobacco licenses that will begin at midnight Monday, Dec. 2, and end at midnight Wednesday, Jan. 1.
The stations, at 4009 Blue Ridge Cutoff and 4632 Paseo Blvd., can remain open but can’t sell or give out tobacco products.
All three stores are supposed to provide training to their employees about city ordinances.
