  • The Neosho City Council voted in special session Tuesday morning to approve a letter to the Missouri Housing Development Commission confirming utilities are available for the Prairie View Estates subdivision.
    The subdivision, selected as a 2012 recipient of Missouri Housing Development Commission funds, is located on Sweet Grass Circle, south of Neosho, a quarter-mile off of Missouri Highway 59.
    The 29-home addition is being developed by Carmichael and Neal, PC.
    The Neosho City Council received a form letter from the Missouri Housing Development Commission in January, which the city was asked to sign off on.
    The letter stated that the subdivision would have access to water, sewer, storm water drainage, and other facilities.
    The council opted in an earlier meeting to table signing off on the letter, as they could not guarantee storm water drainage.
    "We basically said 'hey, we haven't seen any engineering drawings, so we're not going to confirm or deny whether or not the storm water (drainage) is put in place,'" Davidson said. "So we didn't put anything in there."
    He said the commission came back to the city and requested that the council confirm the water and sewer access, which council did on Tuesday.
    "The housing commission needed to confirm that as part of awarding this contract, that water and sewer was available," Davidson said.
    The Neosho City Council wrote a letter in support of the Prairie View Estates development in early October 2011, though the developers did not receive the funding that year.
    In 2012, the city opted to instead throw their support behind two proposed projects that would take place within Neosho city limits, though neither of the two were awarded the funding.
