A plan to build several dozen new homes on Yukon’s north side has earned the resounding approval of a Yukon advisory board.

The Yukon Planning Commission, at a March 8th meeting, voted unanimously to recommend approval of a final plat in the River Mesa Addition.

“This is the third phase of River Mesa,” said Anthony Hanley, project manager with Crafton Tull & Associates.

The River Mesa property is west of Yukon Parkway between E Main and E Wagner Road. Developer is Manco Enterprises LLC.

This final plat for phase three consists of 38 lots on 11.02 acres with no common areas. There already is a 6.1-acre detention area in phase one off Wagner Road.

“That’s the common area for this development,” Hanley told planning commissioners.

The final plat conforms with all Yukon subdivision regulations and city staff recommends approval, the engineer noted.

Access to the subdivision (plat) will be via River Mesa Drive and Dover Mansion in River Mesa phase two; and Linda Lane from the adjoining Ranchwood Heights Addition to the west.

The Yukon City Council will consider the River Mesa phase three final plat at an upcoming meeting.



During open discussion at the March 8th meeting, Yukon Planning Commissioner Nick Grba congratulated new Assistant City Manager Mitchell Hort on his recent promotion.

Hort, Yukon’s longtime development services director, earned his new title in January after Tammy Kretchmar was named city manager.

Grba thanked Hort for furnishing the planning commission with copies of the new Yukon 2040 Comprehensive Plan. An outside company used considerable city staff input to develop the plan, which Grba noted is “really easy to read.”

The document will be posted on the City of Yukon’s website and provided to developers.

Pending city budget approval, commissioners will start reviewing and updating their portion of the City’s development and zoning regulations.
