Public Invited to Review Stormwater Improvements on Nov. 11

The City of Lee's Summit is hosting a public meeting to discuss stormwater infrastructure improvements from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 220 SE Green St., Lee’s Summit, Mo. The following project locations scheduled for improvements will be discussed: the Arlington Circle project, from 314 Arlington Circle to 513 Ash Street in the Arlington Park Subdivision; the Pierce Place project, including portions of NE Country Lane, NE Pierce Place, NE Hendrix Drive, NE Weddle Lane, and NE Scruggs Road in the Emerald View Subdivision; and the Country Lane project, at 208, 213, and 215 NE Country Lane in the Oak Tree Farm Subdivision.  The meeting will allow the public to view plans and provide feedback.  The project is designed to alleviate structural flooding.

Citizens will have the option of attending the meeting in person at City Hall or joining virtually to discuss the improvements with City staff and design engineers from Lamp Rynearson.  Citizens wishing to join virtually should use the link below.  There will be an opportunity to enter contact information in the chat.  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87547733895?pwd=ZEMzTlZnSzFNUlBxbEVHaVE1SGxjdz09

Construction is expected to start late summer of 2022.  This project is funded with the passage of the 2017 Capital Improvement sales tax, which funds road, transportation-related and stormwater projects.

For questions about the project, please direct emails to the attention of Karen Quackenbush at publicworks@cityofls.net or call 969-1800.
