In 2016, Shawnee County began a process to prepare a long-range Comprehensive Plan for the unincorporated area. The Comprehensive Plan will provide a guide for orderly growth that balances environmental values and reasonable development demand over the next 20-years. As such, the Plan will provide a working framework for community development.
This process began in 2016 with County Commission approval of a consultant contract to undertake the preparation and adoption of a first ever Comprehensive Plan for unincorporated Shawnee County. On August 28, 2017, the Shawnee County Planning Commission acted to forward a draft plan to the County Commission with the recommendation that it be approved on a 4-2-0 vote. Upon consideration of the Planning Commission’s recommendation, on October 12, 2017, the County Commission acted to reject the Comprehensive Plan as presented with the adoption of Res. No. 2017-58 and returned it to the Planning Commission for reconsideration along with a list of specific questions, suggestions, and requested modifications. After seven (7) months of reconsideration, the Planning Commission has completed its work and seeks public input regarding the plan as revised.
In addition to revisions to the Comprehensive Plan document, the Planning Commission also prepared issue papers in response to the specific questions, suggestions, and requested modifications made by the County Commission. These documents can be downloaded below and will be the subject of the Planning Commission hearing on June 20th.
