SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A developer has presented an early plan to bring a total of six fraternity and sorority houses near Missouri State University in Springfield.

Burning Tree Consulting received initial approval from the Springfield Planning and Zoning Commission last week to change zoning of an area west of the university campus.

Burning Tree’s attorney, Kevin Hoffmeyer, says if the plan receives final approval some fraternity houses would relocate to the area and the university had said some sororities are interested in expanding to the area because there is not enough sorority housing on campus.

The Springfield News-Leader reports (https://sgfnow.co/1F8CF4K ) a document describing the company’s plan says up to six, four-story buildings would be built, with up to 25 students in each.
