Community members are the City’s greatest asset. The Development Services department strives to promote awareness of development activity and programs to the community through news articles, reporting, and offering various communication outlets. The department provides direct services to the public by staffing a public counter, preparing informational handouts, and responding to citizen inquiries. The department works closely with development project applicants and the community to identify and resolve key issues early in the process. These steps ensure new development reflects the community’s vision for Lee’s Summit.
