Edgerton City Administrator David Dillner announced on the Edgerton Insights blog on Wednesday that the Edgerton Planning Commission has recommended to the city council approval to rezone 16 acres of land south of U.S. 56 to Business Park District.

Pending the council’s approval, the land eventually will be home to a 312,000-square-foot warehouse/distribution facility for Leawood, Kan.-based Demdaco, a company that specializes in figurines and collectibles.

The Planning Commission made the approval with several stipulations, including the inclusion of a photometric lighting plan for the building and installation of additional landscaping in lieu of a required 30-foot setback.

The council will review the rezoning issue for discussion and approval during a special meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 29, at the Community Center, 404 E. Nelson St.
