Monday, September 10, 2007 | 9:11 p.m. CDT; updated 4:26 a.m. CDT, Tuesday, July 22, 2008

This information was prepared by Engineering Surveys & Services of Columbia for the 21 members of a committee reviewing land offers for a third comprehensive high school in the Columbia Public Schools.

Site location

Located along the east side of Route Z approximately 2,000 feet north of Interstate 70.

Size and shape of property

Site is generally rectangular in shape and encompasses approximately 210 acres. Property owner has offered two proposals. Proposal A encompasses 80 acres of property generally square in shape and located in the middle of the property. Proposal B encompasses 80 acres in a generally rectangular shape along the northern portion of the property.


No sewer on site. Either 1) Proposed Boone County Regional Sewer District plant on property southeast of site to Cedar Creek, or 2) Pump one mile along Route Z to south side of I-70 to Sunrise Estates. New BCRSD line connecting to city will be constructed by Fall 2008, or 3) Connect to existing BCRSD sewers in Frank Stanton Subdivision, approximately one mile west.


A PWSD #9;12” PVC on west side of Route Z, 4” PVC on east side of Route Z. 1500 gallons per minute available for fire suppression.


Copper service currently at site that probably does not have capacity. Nearest fiber optic service with capacity at Loveall RV to the south or at Shaw to the north. Either can be extended along Z to site.

Cable TV

No service currently at site. Mediacom has nearest service with capacity at ABC Lane, across from Sunrise Estate. Line will have to be extended along I-70 and Route Z to site.


Site currently has 4” main on the west side of Route Z that has capacity.


Boone Electric-2 7620 volt 3 phase lines on east side of Route Z, one 7620 V 3 phase line turns east along the south property line. Available electric is sufficient to serve the site.

Storm sewer

Property is currently underdeveloped. Therefore no storm sewers exist on the site.

Storm water management

Property is currently in the County and whether or not the property is annexed or pre-annexed into the City, it is likely that storm water detention will be required.

Site topography

Both Proposal A and B contain property which is gently sloping with 2 percent to 5 percent grades and the majority of the property in either proposal is buildable.

Subsurface conditions

Our experience with the geologic conditions in Boone County would indicate that we would not expect the presence of rock to be an issue on this property. Expansive clays are also common in Boone County and will likely be a consideration with this property. A geotechnical investigation should be performed to classify the soil materials and confirm the presence or absence of rock as a construction consideration.


No known Sinkholes in the area. Recommend geotechnical investigation to confirm.


Status of wetlands on this property is unknown at this time. Recommend Phase 1 Environmental Assessment to confirm.

Environmental impairments

No known environmental impairments. Recommend doing a phase 1 environmental site assessment.

Cultural resources

No known cultural resources on property. Recommend doing a Phase 1 environmental site assessment.


Floodplain is not present in the Proposal A or B areas of the property.

Jurisdictional streams (under the jurisdiction of the Army Corps of Engineers or the city of Columbia)

There are no “blue line” streams in Proposal A or B areas. There is an unnamed tributary within both the Proposal A and B areas that will likely require a jurisdictional determination and will have to be evaluated with regard to the Type 3 classification of the city of Columbia stream buffer ordinance.

City stream buffer requirements

The unnamed tributary on the site will need to be evaluated to determine whether it meets the criteria of a Type 3 stream as defined by the city of Columbia stream buffer ordinance.

Climax forest (Hard Wood Forest Such As Oak, Hickory & Walnut Trees)

Climax Forest does not appear to exist in the buildable areas of either Proposal A or B.

Annexation needed

Property is currently in Boone County, but outside the limits of the city of Columbia. If city services are pursued, property will need to be either annexed or pre-annexed into the city of Columbia.


Accessible from State Route Z, a State of Missouri paved two-lane unimproved rural roadway, which is designated by the Columbia Area Transportation Study Organization (February 2007) as a major arterial street. I-70 is the only major roadway providing direct access to Route Z.

Offsite improvements needed

Sanitary sewer, telephone, cable TV. Roadway improvements will be necessary as the site develops.


Unknown — Recommend obtaining up to date title information on the property.

Legal lot status

Unplatted County property. Property may need to be surveyed and/or platted to obtain a building permit.

Compatibility of adjacent properties

Commercial property to the south, proposed commercial property surrounding the Proposal A and B sites, undeveloped property to the west, north and east. The subject property is zoned County A-R (Agricultural-Residential). Property to the west and east is zoned County A-1 (Agricultural). Property to the south is zoned County G-C (General Commercial) and C-GP (Planned Commercial). Property to the north is zoned County A-R (Agricultural-Residential).

Traffic signals

No existing traffic signal in the vicinity of the property.
