There are many opinions on whether Columbia is overbuilt or not. KBIA’s Lauren Langille spoke with the city and professionals in the housing and real estate industry to see what’s going on with supply and demand.

Both the Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals made it into baseball’s post-season this year. And while fans are happy, businesses that sell licensed team shirts, hats and even socks are happier. KBIA’s Annie Rice reports on how postseason runs – and a few bandwagon fans – can be a home run for local businesses.

Area Southeast of Town Set for Rezoning

Jun 6, 2014

Columbia residents might start noticing some changes in the land southeast of town.

The planning and zoning commission approved a zoning request from Crockett Engineering last night at City Hall.

The motion of approval will now be forwarded to the City Council.

The request asked the city to annex roughly 130 acres of mostly woodlands at the southeast corner of Route K and Old Plank Road.

Crockett applied for permanent zoning for the land for a large one-family dwelling district and a planned unit development.

The Columbia Missourian reports this morning that city council members voted 5-1 last night on a new plan with The Opus Group.
