    If you were unable to participate in the Strategy Sessions, this is your opportunity to get involved! This survey includes all questions and topics covered during Strategy Sessions in 2021 and 2022, which were divided into four categories: Mobility, Visibility, Livability, and Serviceability. 

    This survey is divided into 8 parts, one for each Strategy Session where we conducted in-meeting surveying. Most questions have been paired with presentation slides from the Session for context. There are no registration requirements to participate in this survey, and you can answer or skip as many questions as you would like depending on what Sessions you were able to attend or your personal interests in the different policy areas discussed.

    Comprehensive plans are used to be both proactive and reactive to development. Reactively, the plan is used as a decision-aiding tool and as a way to evaluate proposals that come to the City in various forms (a rezoning request for example). The Plan will be used to inform public improvement funding and public investment decisions, as well as to guide land use decisions being made by the City Plan Commission and Board of Zoning Adjustment and our Economic Development agencies.

    Answer the following questions and submit your feedback to add your comments to Kansas City’s Comprehensive Plan, the KC Spirit Playbook.

    Area plans provide a community-driven vision for all parts of Kansas City. These plans identify strategies and priority initiatives to achieve over a 10-year timeframe and provide guidance for future land use and development decisions. In addition to land use, area plans make recommendations related to topics such as; transportation, housing and neighborhoods, and economic development that are the result of technical analysis by staff and conversations with community stakeholders.

    Kansas City had previously been organized into 46 different planning areas making it difficult to maintain current plans for all planning areas. In 2007 the city was reorganized into 18 larger, but more manageable, planning areas allowing plans to be updated on a 10-year cycle. As of 2020 all 18 planning areas have a current plan and several have been updated. This reorganization helps our area plans fill a gap between the very small-scale neighborhood plans and our larger comprehensive plan.

    Kansas City, Missouri is divided into 18 geographic areas for which area plans are prepared. 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. These plans are used by the City and the Community alike and become an element of the City’s comprehensive plan.

    Area plans provide both proactive strategies (phased action steps which are outcome driven) and reactive guidelines (evaluation tool to guide future decision making).  The area plan applies the broad citywide polices to a smaller area of the city, typically at a higher level of detail. Generally area plans are updated on a 10 year cycle and are created through a robust public engagement effort.

We also have 18 area plans that guide decision making on a more detailed level than the comprehensive plan is able to do. The next few weeks we will be looking into our area plans, how they are related to the comprehensive plan, and how they can be used in the most effective way possible.

    In Kansas City's current comprehensive plan, there are 12 "Building Blocks", or policy areas, that form the foundation of the Plan. Each Building Block section in the Plan gives information and context for that policy area, and they provide implementation strategies and specific directives. Those 12 Building Blocks are:

    • Citizen Access and Communications 
    • City Life
    • Community Anchors
    • Competitive Economy
    • Connecting Corridors
    • FOCUS Centers
    • Healthy Community
    • Investing in Critical Resources
    • Life Long Learning
    • Moving about the City
    • Neighborhood Livability
    • Quality Places to Live and Work

    We have taken 6 of those Building Blocks and created a theoretical action the City could take in that policy area. As the new theoretical budget-maker for the City, your job is to distribute your budget of $100 between the action items. How much money you give to each policy area is up to you! But you must spend exactly $100. Last week we did the first 6 Building Blocks, you can still complete that activity here

    Please only enter your answer in the form of a number (for example, for $15 dollars, you can type in 15).

    We held our first virtual town hall for the KC Spirit Playbook. While we did experience some issues, we were still able to hold constructive conversations in our breakout rooms. We would like to get direct feedback on how to improve the discussion format in the future from those who were in attendance and those who were not.

    For those who attended: What aspects of the first virtual town hall did you think worked well? Aside from preventing unplanned disruptions, what needs to be addressed so it works better?

    For those who were unable to attend: Is there something that we can do to make it easier for you to attend? Is there a different kind of discussion format that would work better for you?
