Community Planning Overview:

The Envision Olathe Plan, a downtown plan for a community of 132,000, demonstrates a need for a nimble plan that can maintain a meaningful vision while presenting multiple development options for private market response. This flexibility allows policy makers to negotiate for desirable development, and it allows developers flexibility and creativity in a changing marketplace. At the plan’s core is the goal of building memories for all and stimulating interest in private investment. Also, the plan responds to the county’s intent for building a new $200 million courthouse, and leveraging the project to strengthen downtown into a new neighborhood for the city.
