Welcome to the new City of Lee’s Summit website

We’ve been working on this for a while with our citizens and City staff to design a website to serve your needs. We can’t wait for you to take a look around!

Floodplain Development Permit

A Floodplain Development Permit is required from the City Engineer for all work within a regulatory floodplain. Regulatory floodplains are defined on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Copies of maps and additional floodplain information are available on-line through the FEMA website, as linked on the City's Environment page. A permit can be obtained by submitting a completed Floodplain Development Permit Application to Public Works – Engineering for review and approval.
