Preparations Underway for Google Fiber to come to Lee’s Summit

Preparatory utility work began in mid-August, and installation of the Google Fiber network along major roadways should begin early this fall and in residential areas later this fall. A timeline for Google Fiber residential service availability is not yet available, but it is expected to start sometime in 2015.

Once the installation of the fiber network begins, residents can expect to see Google subcontractors working within the City’s right-of-way and utility easements. As is typical with underground utility work of this scale, digging could be required in your area. Residents should receive door-hangers from Google Fiber prior to construction activity beginning in their neighborhoods. Click the read more for FAQ's and important contact numbers.

Citizens in Lee’s Summit will join thousands of individuals across the country to celebrate National Preservation Month in May. In our community, the observance began with a proclamation in honor of “May Preservation Month.”

This month, the Lee’s Summit Historic Preservation Commission will host two events dedicated to our community’s rich heritage.

The first event is the annual Strawberry Lawn Fete on Sunday, May 15th from 2 to 4 p.m.  At this event, the HPC will dedicate the historic R. H. Marquette building in downtown Lee's Summit with a bronze building plaque.  The plaque will be placed near the entry of

“Red Door Wine” store in downtown Lee’s Summit with a reception afterwards at the neighboring “A Thyme for Everything, 229 SE Main.”

The second event will be a theatrical presentation titled "Forget Not These Days" at the Lee's Summit North High School Performing Arts Center, 901 NE Douglas, on Saturday, May 21st at 7 p.m. The production focuses on the troubling days of the Civil War that raged along the Missouri-Kansas border.  The cost is $10 for adults, ages 18 and older, and $5 for youth, ages 7 – 17.

The organizers of both events would like to thank the sponsors, volunteers and contributors of these events.

For more information, contact the Historic Preservation Commission Chairperson Kathy Smith at 186-935-8853 or the city of Lee's Summit 969-1000.
