WHAT IS YOUR VISION FOR THE CR-1 CORRIDOR?
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE SCHEDULED FOR MAY 2
Developers and employers have expressed interest in the (Leavenworth County Road 1) CR-1 corridor, but we want to know what local community members envision for the area. As a result, Leavenworth County and the City of Tonganoxie invite you to attend a public open house and share your ideas with us. The meeting will be Wednesday, May 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Leavenworth County Fair Grounds, Administration Building (405 W. 4th Street) in Tonganoxie. It kicks off the planning process for the Leavenworth CR-1 Land Use Analysis.
During the meeting, the public will be able to review detailed exhibits that show the CR-1 corridor as it is today, spanning six miles between Tonganoxie’s south limits and K-32. Representatives from the County, City, and consultant team will be present to answer questions and discuss issues or concerns. We will be seeking community feedback about the key issues and potential opportunities that are important to consider as we plan for future land development in the corridor. We will not give a formal presentation, so community members may stop by anytime during the meeting’s two-hour timeframe. If you are unable to attend, you are welcome to share your comments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online at LVCR1.digicate.com through June 30, 2018.
The purpose of the Leavenworth CR-1 Land Use Analysis is to develop a community-focused plan for thoughtful, future land development in the corridor. The planning process began during spring 2018 and will continue through fall 2018. During it, the study team will consider your ideas, community character, land use and development trends, transportation and infrastructure, natural resources, marketplace data, urban design, and more.
Feedback from the community is essential to the successful development of the study. The County, City, and a team of consultants have planned two rounds of community engagement. The first begins with the May 2 public open house and includes a summer meeting with the study’s stakeholder/focus group. We anticipate the second round to occur during the fall in order to present a preferred concept for future land development to the community for comment. Online commenting is available throughout the planning process at LVCR1.digicate.com.
For more information about the Leavenworth CR-1 Land Use Analysis, contact Jeff Joseph, Leavenworth County Planning and Zoning Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org and (913) 684-0465. Attend the public open house or visit LVCR1.digicate.com to share your comments through June 30. You may also follow the project on Facebook at Leavenworth CR-1 and use our #LVCR1 hashtag.
