A crowd listens as Dick Otke of Dick Otke Construction speaks about his plans to develop a subdivision off Hayselton Drive. Residents say the area is too dangerous to add a street where Otke wants to.

More than one year after the proposal was originally made, the Planning and Zoning Commission approved a request for a proposed subdivision plan for the Missouri River bluffs just east of Hayselton Drive.

The subdivision request, which seeks to re-zone 4.36 acres from RS-3 single family residential to a Planned Unit Development for a 10.86-acre development, was brought by developer Dick Otke, on behalf of landowners River Bluff Condominiums LLC and Rayma Chinn.

In five different votes, necessary for each aspect of the request including rescinding the prior PUD plan approved last year, the commission voted to approve the proposal, with only two commissioners voting in opposition on three of the five votes.
