— Planning commissioners will consider rezoning property on the southeast corner of Waterloo Road and Broadway from agricultural and single family to a mixed-use planned unit development when they meet Tuesday.

The development covers 183 acres and would include commercial, office and 220 single-family homes.

Dorothy and Wayne Sadeghy are asking for the zoning change at the meeting that begins at 5:30 p.m. at 20 S Littler Ave.

The developer is planning to extend the water line from a half-mile away to the south at Sorghum Mill and Broadway.

City Planner Bob Schiermeyer said the developer also will need to loop the water line to the west to a water line on Waterloo Road that was installed when the Oak Tree development was constructed.

“Without the loop, there would not be adequate water pressure,” Schiermeyer said.

The developer also wants to use aerobic treatment systems on the individual lots, which are expected to be at least 22,000 square feet.

“There has not been a project this large planned for aerobic systems,” Schiermeyer said.

An aerobic treatment system is a small-scale sewage treatment system similar to a septic tank system, but which uses an aerobic process for digestion rather than just the anaerobic process used in septic systems.
