We're managing community growth,

and maintaining rural lifestyles.

The draft Leavenworth County Comprehensive Plan

is available for review!


Join the Advisory Committee

Join the team and make a difference in our county. We need volunteers to join our Stakeholder and Citizen Advisory Committee (SCAC). The SCAC is integral to this process and will help the planning team better understand the unique issues our residents care about, such as:

  • Infrastructure

  • Economic development

  • Agriculture

  • Land use

  • Zoning

  • Urban growth

There are no qualifications required to be a member of the SCAC except for a commitment to attend as many of the events listed below as possible - and a desire to help Leavenworth County plan for its future!

What's the time commitment?

Visioning Workshop

Meet with the planning team to discuss high-level priorities for the county's future.


October 1-3


Convene multiple times during a three-day workshop and provide feedback to the planning team on various concepts and plans for the county. Each day will require a 3-5 hour time commitment.

SCAC Meeting(s)


Attend SCAC meetings(s) after the charrette to review the draft plan and provide feedback.









As a resident of Leavenworth County, you're invited to share your priorities for the county's future by taking the survey on this website.

The survey closed on September 1, 2019. Results from the survey summarized in the "Existing Conditions, Public Survey, and Focus Group Findings Summary" download in the next section below.

The planning team met with persons interested in various topics to gather focused feedback related to the Comprehensive Plan. Each focus group topic (infrastructure, economic development, agriculture, land use / zoning, and urban growth) was offered twice - once in the north part of the county and once in the south part of the county.

North location - Pleasant Ridge Elementary School (20753 Easton Rd., Easton, KS 66020)

South location - VFW Tonganoxie (910 E. 1st St., Tonganoxie, KS 66086)

The planning team generated land use, development, and transportation concepts for Leavenworth County alongside the Stakeholder and Citizen Advisory Committee. Based on on-the-fly feedback, the planning team explored a variety of alternatives.
