LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The Lawrence City Commission will decide whether to make land-use and zoning changes that would allow for a new 250,000-square-foot shopping development.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1OFFXCZ ) that the commission will meet Tuesday to discuss the KTen Crossing project planned on the city’s south side.

Commissioners must agree to rezone about 60 acres at the project’s intersection from residential to commercial property before North Carolina-based development group Collett can move forward. The city’s comprehensive plan must also be altered to reflect commercial use.

The issue was originally scheduled to go before commissioners Dec. 8 but was pulled from the agenda because one commissioner could not attend.

Collett hopes to break ground on the project this summer. The shopping center could open as soon as fall 2017.
