DOWNTOWN MARKET PLAZA
The City of Lee’s Summit unveiled an ambitious plan in July 2020 that will reshape the City’s historic downtown corridor. The City entered into a partnership with LANE4 Development Group and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures to develop the Downtown Market Plaza. LANE4 will serve as the master developer for the redevelopment project, while Biederman Redevelopment Ventures will serve as the manager of the project. The Downtown Market Plaza will be a mixed-use development, consisting of a permanent farmers market, conservatory, boutique hotel, mixed-use commercial building, outdoor performance area, apartment complex and courtyard.

IGNITE STRATEGIC PLAN
In order to ensure continued exceptional service and the highest quality of life, the City of Lee’s Summit is always looking to the future. In September 2020, City Council adopted an implementation plan for the City’s updated strategic plan – Ignite. Your Ideas. Our Future. This strategic plan is a long-term vision for the community and provides direction for the organization. The strategic plan identified seven critical success factors in order for the City to continue to thrive. Those critical success factors included strategic economic development; cultural and recreational amenities; community health and wellbeing; City services and infrastructure; strong neighborhoods with housing choice; collaborative relations with education partners; and community engagement. The overall vision of the City is a vibrant community ensuring the finest quality of life for all generations.

IGNITE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
Building upon the Ignite Strategic Plan, the City also adopted an updated comprehensive plan in May 2021. The comprehensive plan details a series of goals, policies, actions and standards based on community feedback. It will guide economic development, residential growth and general improvements for the next 20 years. The comprehensive plan was developed around seven essential elements of a successful community: quality of life; strong neighborhoods and housing choice; resilient economy; multimodal transportation; facilities and infrastructure; sustainable environment; and land use and community design.
