Eudora Comprehensive Plan
The Eudora 2020 Comprehensive Plan
Over the course of this year (2020), the City of Eudora has developed its comprehensive plan to guide our planning and decision making over the next several years. A comprehensive plan helps determine community goals and aspirations in terms of community growth and development. This plan will express and regulate public policies on economic development, utilities, land use, recreation, and housing.
The first phase of the comprehensive planning process focused on answering two questions:
- Where have we been?
- Where are we today?
The Existing Conditions Report, which is a component of the updated comprehensive plan, is a great place to start. This report is filled with facts regarding Eudora’s past and present, setting a foundation for the future of Eudora.
Eudora does have an existing comprehensive plan, created in 2003. This document has been guiding the city’s decisions for the last 15+ years. However, as we have all experienced, much has changed in Eudora. It makes sense to go through this formal process and update our plan to meet the changing needs of our growing community.
Draft Plan Public Comment
The draft Comprehensive Plan was presented to the Eudora Planning Commission on November 4, 2020, which formally opened the plan review and comment period. On December 2, 2020 the Planning Commission will hold a formal public hearing and take into consideration public comment prior to making a recommendation to the City Commission. The public comment period was open from November 5 - November 24. The draft Comprehensive Plan Update is now available for public review through December 2, 2020. Residents, property owners, business owners, and other interested parties are encouraged to review the draft plan and provide comments via email to the City of Eudora by December 1, 2020.
To learn more about the Comprehensive Plan, please review this presentation from our planning consultants to get the full picture of what's in the comprehensive plan and how it's structured.
Folks are encouraged to submit comments to the City of Eudora in writing prior to or verbally at the December 2 Planning Commission public hearing.

- What assets does Eudora have?
- What goals/vision do we have for our community?
- What are the priorities that we must solve first?
