Phase 1 Homes
The Phase 1 Plat
is comprised of 38 homes and 7 common areas. These common areas include a storm water retention pond located off Hutton Road with a fountain, a portion of the east and southeast side of the Northridge Drive storm water retention pond, two entrance monuments, and green space.
The homes located in Phase 1 all have low-pressure sewer systems, aka “Grinder Pumps”. Effective January 2021, these homes will no longer be charged the additional monthly maintenance plan fee of $14.36 on their BPU bills for the Unified Government’s maintenance plan. This fee was billed under “Water Pollution Abatement” with other fees which made up the line item. If you were one of the 5 homes that did not previously have the maintenance plan coverage, your home is now covered due to an ordinance amendment passed earlier this year. Grinder pumps do come with usage rules and responsibilities. The Unified Government of Wyandotte County, Kansas City, Kansas advised they would be assessing each external grinder pump and communicate with the homeowners regarding these changes. More information regarding grinder pumps may be found under Documents
Phase 2 Homes
The Phase 2 Plat
is comprised of 131 homes and 13 common areas. These common areas include the swimming pool, playground and parking lot, entrance monument, a sizable creek, and a sidewalk that leads to the Piper USD203 middle school and high school campus.

These homes will utilize our internal streets for access and the current dead ends of Merion Drive, Augusta Drive, and Northridge Drive will be turned into cul-de-sacs for the new homes.
