HELLO SHAWNEE!

It's time to look at our Comprehensive Plan, and we need to hear YOUR voice!

 

In September 2020, the City of Shawnee kicked off an exciting and important project for the future of our community: a new Comprehensive Plan. The current Comprehensive Plan was originally adopted in 1987, so it is time to update and look forward to the future.

 

With the help of a local consultant (Ochsner Hare & Hare, the Olsson Studio), the new plan will be based on community input, opportunities, economic realities, and the city’s new strategic vision.

What is a Comprehensive Plan,

and why should it matter to me?

At its core, a comprehensive plan is a vision for the future at a community scale. Comprehensive plans are created by and for the community to record shared goals and desires for themselves and their fellow community members. A comprehensive plan examines what a community is, where it came from, and crafts a coordinated road map for the future. This road map guides the growth and development of the community for the next 10 to 20 years, and is revisited to ensure its relevance.

What does the planning process look like?

The planning process will take approximately 12 months and consist of six primary phases: from Discover, where a baseline understanding of Shawnee is developed, to Engage where the community shares their voice, to Plan and Refine when the actual road map for the future of topics like development, connectivity, and housing are recorded, to Implement and Sustain when the new Comprehensive Plan is put to work.

What is an Area Plan Workshop?

Shawnee from a 10,000-foot perspective, the area plan workshops will take a 2,000-foot perspective.
This allows us to dive deeper for areas and corridors deemed extra important by you.
