Last night at the Pike Township Government Center it was a full house. About 150 residents from the surrounding area of the old Ropkey 200 acres just west of 465 on 86th Street attended a presentation by Cornerstone Companies, Johnson County’s GCG Investments, and Murry Clark (their land use attorney) on what they have proposed for the land.

Most likely this will continue on through the summer before it gets finalized. The presenters did not have a lot of detail being in their first stages. They took questions for about 2 hours from the audience. Councillor Leroy Robinson was there trying to organize homeowner association meetings.
The mood of most of the crowd was that they did not want this project because of environmental reasons, water runoff reasons, buffering, traffic, and depreciation of neighborhoods.
