Keep Cool When It's Hot

Admission fees into Legacy Park, Gamber and Harris Park Community Centers will be reduced to half price on all days the National Weather Service issues Excessive Heat Warnings for the months June, July and August. During business hours, Mid-Continent Libraries are also good cooling centers. Call United Way 2-1-1 for assistance or information about public cooling centers.

The City of Lee’s Summit will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony Aug. 10 at 9 a.m. to celebrate the completion of two new hangars housing 28 units at the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport. The public may park at the terminal building at 2751 NE Douglas St. and a shuttle will be provided to transport guests to the event.

The extension of north/south runway 18-36 from 4,014 feet to 5,501 feet required the relocation of taxiway alpha, which resulted in the removal of seven existing hangars. Construction on the new T-hangars in the northwest quadrant of the airport began in February of this year. We anticipate all 28 units in the new hangars will by fully occupied and rented by Sept. 1.

“We are happy to offer our base customers new and improved facilities,” Airport Manager John Ohrazda said.

Crawford, Murphy & Tilly (CMT) served as the engineering consultant on the project. B. Dean Construction of Lee’s Summit was responsible for the project’s construction.

The construction of the new T-hangars represents a continued investment in the airport by the City of Lee’s Summit. The total cost of the project was about $2.6 million.
