The Petitioner is Golf Park Inc. dba Family Golf Park, 1501 N.E. 40 Highway, Blue Springs MO 64015. Copies of the petition will be delivered to the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Jackson County Legislature. The Unintended Consequences of the Blue Springs Lake Wetland Mitigation Bank which was constructed through the cooperative efforts of USACE and MoDOT has disrupted the 27 year old Family Golf Park business and their plans for future development of their property. The Blue Springs Lake Wetland Mitigation Bank which is located in a heavily populated urban area, on a site that was designated for a Fish Hatchery and Recreation uses, should be removed in order to avoid more adverse effects on many other people and could lower the values of their properties, homes and businesses. This Wetland has been described as a shallow marsh and a prolific generator of insects. I hereby endorse and recommend the removal of the Wetland Mitigation Bank. Further, I also endorse and recommend that the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Jackson County Legislature enter into an agreement with Golf Park Inc. for a public-private land exchange. The Family Golf Park property sits on US Highway 40 adjacent to the USACE land on the north side of Blue Springs Lake. Golf Park Inc. has identified an undeveloped parcel on the south end of the lake with frontage on Woods Chapel Road west of Liggett Road. I understand that any exchange requires approval by Congress and the President of the United States of America.
