Design Studios - September (Updated)

The City of Leawood is sponsoring a series of three Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Workshops to help develop a new Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The Workshops will give you a chance to visit with the project team, share experiences and favorite routes, and be a part of making our city more friendly to bicyclists and pedestrians.

Each workshop will focus on one vicinity of the City. The workshop session is an informal open house, designed to give you a chance to offer ideas and suggestions about streets, pathways, design, routes, and other items.
