Planning Services

Welcome to Planning Services!

The City Planning Division helps Olathe identify and achieve its desired future.

The Division focuses on:

  • Growth and its impacts on the physical character of the community
  • Implementing the City's Comprehensive Plan, PlanOlathe
  • Enforcement of codes for the health, safety and welfare of Olathe's citizens

This work includes both a long-range planning component and a current planning component that reviews specific proposals for development.

Current Planning staff reviews development projects and makes recommendations to the Planning Commission. Staff also provides information to the public about land use issues.

Long Range Planners implement the goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan, process annexation requests and create and maintain development, demographic and community profile information.

The Planning Division also monitors Neighborhood Planning. Neighborhood Planning includes fostering neighborhood alliances, preserving and enhancing developed neighborhoods, empowering neighbors and partnering with residents for the improvement of their area.
