The City of Lee’s Summit requires any public or private entity, which causes or intends to cause a condition that allows for soil erosion (i.e. the denuding of ground, the stockpiling / storing of dirt, or covering the ground with dirt) in an area(s) greater than 2,000 square feet, to obtain a Land Disturbance Permit. The Land Disturbance Permit application shall be submitted to the City along with the appropriate fee and an Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Plan that is in accordance with procedures outlined in the City’s Design and Construction Manual (DCM).
For projects one (1) acre or greater, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) may require a separate land disturbance permit in addition to the City’s Land Disturbance Permit. Applicants shall contact MDNR at 800.361.4827 to determine their permit requirements and to obtain an application (MDNR ePermitting website).
