Jordan Creek saying 'no' to connector street

The West Des Moines Planning and Zoning Commission will hear a request April 24 from the owners of Jordan Creek Town Center to ease setback requirements in connection with the construction of a 99-room hotel on the east side of the shopping center. The development plan for the center currently requires a 100-foot setback. Jordan Creek owners want that reduced to 25 feet. In addition, the city is requesting the construction of a connector street within the Jordan Creek layout that would cut through development property owned by Hurd Real Estate and join an existing street in the mall. Hurd Real Estate has agreed to build the street through its property, but an additional 30 feet of pavement would run across property owned by General Growth Properties, the mall's owner, which said in letter that the street is not needed.
