KANSAS CITY, MO—Golf courses have become less popular, but many developers and planners have ideas on how these spaces can be remade. The Belton Planning Commission voted 8-1 in favor of NorthPoint Development’s $105 million plan to redevelop the former Southview Golf Course in Belton, a Kansas City suburb, into a 148-acre flex industrial campus. The Belton City Council will consider the redevelopment in June and if approved, NorthPoint will break a ground later this year.
