Leavenworth County Seeks Participants for Comprehensive Plan Public Engagement Process

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — Leavenworth County needs residents to participate in a public engagement process to inform the new Leavenworth County Comprehensive Plan.

Residents who volunteer for the process will serve on a stakeholder committee to guide the county’s planning staff and consulting team from Olsson in the creation of a plan to direct future growth in the county.

The goal of the plan is to ensure Leavenworth County can continue to grow in a sustainable way that both fulfills the needs of its residents and preserves the integrity of its rural areas. The county hopes the plan will address issues that have emerged concerning infrastructure, land use and urban growth with the increasing development along highway corridors.

The planning and public engagement process will include the following:

  • An introductory visioning workshop with the stakeholder committee on May 23,
  • A project website, to be live in May,
  • An online community survey, to be released in June,
  • Targeted focus groups starting June 19,
  • A three-day charrette in the fall for stakeholder committee members, which will include a public meeting (dates, time and location to be announced), and
  • Stakeholder committee meetings with consultants and staff to finalize the plan.

The visioning workshop will allow participants to advise the planning team about specific amenities, services and changes they’d like to see incorporated in the county. The event will be from 3 to 6:30 p.m. May 23, at the Basehor Community Library, 1400 158th Street in Basehor.

In the fall, the stakeholder committee will convene several times during a three-day charrette, where they will work with the consultants on refining various concepts and plans for the county through activities and focus groups. This workshop will include a public open house to gather community input on the concepts (exact date, time, and location TBA).

Any resident of Leavenworth County is welcome to join the stakeholder committee, as long as he or she can commit to the visioning event May 23. Community committee members will be vital to the planning process. Those who are interested in participating on the committee are encouraged to contact the county at compplan@leavenworthcounty.org.

For those unable to participate in the stakeholder committee, there will be other ways to provide input during the process, including taking an online survey and participating in focus groups during the summer. More information will be announced as plans are finalized.

Please direct questions to compplan@leavenworthcounty.org or contact Jeff Joseph at 913-684-0465.
