Lee's Summit Downtown Master Plan
The "Old Lee's Summit Downtown Master Plan" was prepared by EDAW in association with HWA, Canyon research Southwest and TranSystems, and adopted by the Planning Commission in February 2004. The outlined planning area includes all land areas bounded by Chipman Road, M-291 and US 40 Highway with a focus on the Downtown Core.
In 2015, the Master Plan Task Force compiled a Downtown Master Plan Report addressing issues such as parking, housing and density, better traffic corridors and a permanent Farmers Market, as well as a proposal to expand the limits of the downtown area and to redefine the downtown zoning.
The Downtown Master Plan Task Force presented the report to the City Council who voted to move forward with formal adoption of the 2015 Downtown Master Plan Task Force Report, as presented, with the addition of the Langsford corridor as one of the gateways.
