The Country Club Waldo Area Plan is about to get an update in 2017! The Area Plan is one of 18 geographic areas for which Area Plans are being prepared. The Country Club Waldo area plan will replace the Country Club Area Plan, the South Central Area Plan, the 63rd Street Corridor Plan and the Waldo Area Plan. The Country Club Waldo Area Plan process is scheduled to run from approximately March 2017 to January 2018.
Area plans recommend strategies to help realize a community’s long term vision for the future and provide a comprehensive framework to guide public decisions on land use, housing, public improvements, community development, and city services.
Area plans provide both proactive strategies (action steps which are outcome driven) and reactive guidelines (evaluation tools to guide future decision making). These plans are used by the City and the community and become an element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Area plans are guided by a range of Citywide planning documents including the FOCUS Kansas City Plan (the City’s comprehensive plan), the Trails KC Plan, and others. The area plan applies the broad citywide policies from these documents to a smaller area of the city, typically at a greater level of detail. Area plans sometimes recommend amendments to these upper level plans, but generally try to work within their policy framework.
The Country Club Waldo Area Plan will:
- Recommend guidelines and strategies related to development, neighborhoods, economic development, transportation, capital improvements, open spaces and urban design.
- Serve as the “plan of record” for the area and will be fully integrated with other adopted plans resulting in a single, coordinated policy for the area.
- Build on the foundation of previous planning efforts in the area.
ADOPTED COUNTRY CLUB/WALDO AREA PLAN – The final plan is the result of the public input received during public meetings, steering committee meetings and other feedback we’ve received during the planning process. Next, the draft plan will go before the City Plan Commission on February 6, 2018.
