The City's Comprehensive Plan


The City of Lee's Summit is actively engaged in the review and update of the City's comprehensive plan. A comprehensive plan articulates a series of goals, policies, actions and standards to guide the community’s physical development and programs over a 15 to 20-year timeframe. It serves as the basis for economic development, quality residential growth and general improvements for the protection of the quality of life for Lee's Summit residents and businesses.

Community participation is critical to ensure the plan fulfills our shared vision of a vibrant community ensuring the finest quality of life for all generations. There will be numerous opportunities for involvement via focus groups, community discussions and surveys.

Come with us as we chart a course forward!

strategic plan

The City's strategic plan is a relatively short-term road-map (5 to 7-year plan) to move the community toward its intended long-term 20-year vision. Ultimately, a strategic plan is a fundamental management tool that exists to help the organization improve its delivery of services to the community. Ignite! Your ideas. Our future. articulates a clear vision for the community, establishes critical success factors or goals and identifies priority objectives. C4 Committees are currently working on an implementation plan.

HOW DO THESE PLANS WORK TOGETHER?

The framework developed during the Ignite! strategic plan will provide the structure for the City's comprehensive plan. Both plans share the same vision, objectives, and goals, or critical success factors. The strategic plan and comprehensive plan work together to build the future the community desires.
