Planning Commission


The Planning Commission reviews planning applications, such as rezoning, special use permits, plans and plats. The Commission also reviews Lenexa's Comprehensive Plan to ensure it stays relevant and responsive to changes in our vision, demographic trends and development patterns. Often the Planning Commission acts as a recommending body and some planning applications must receive final approval by the City Council.


The Planning Commission typically meets at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of the month in the Community Forum at Lenexa City Hall. Please see the meeting calendar to verify meeting dates because not all meetings occur on the first Monday of the month. Meetings are open to the public and anyone may appear before the Commission to present their views on an agenda item.
