GLADSTONE — The Gladstone City Council approved a development that will bring in more luxury apartments to the city. Parkside at Hobby Hill received final plat approval at the Feb. 28 Gladstone City Council meeting.

The final plat consolidates four parcels into two in the area of 76th Street to the south and west of North Oak Trafficway. Once developed, Parkside at Hobby Hill will consist of five separate buildings with four floors each. The luxury-style apartment complex will contain 216 units, a swimming pool, clubhouse, fitness center and commercial retail/office space.

The council also approved a resolution accepting work under contract with Custom Lighting Services for the Northeast 72nd Street and North Troost traffic signal upgrades project.

The council also passed a resolution allowing for the city to participate in a pilot program with Flock Group that will

temporarily install up to 12 fixed license plate

reader cameras within the city.

Through the Feb. 28 consent agenda, the Gladstone City Council approved a resolution amending the 2022 Fiscal Year Budget. The resolution amends or revises the 2022 General Fund, Community Center and Parks Sales Tax Fund, Public Safety Sales Tax Fund, Combined Waterworks and Sewer System Fund, Capital Improvements Sales Tax Fund and Transportation Sales Tax Fund; and authorizes expenditures of funds.

They also approved a resolution accepting a proposal from Water Odyssey for the replacement of the Gladstone Community Center’s leisure pool dumping bucket.
