Eudora Comprehensive Plan
The Eudora 2020 Comprehensive Plan
Over the course of this year, the City of Eudora will develop its comprehensive plan to guide our planning and decision making over the next several years. A comprehensive plan determines 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 is focused on answering two questions:
- Where have we been?
- Where are we today?
The draft Existing Conditions Report, which will become 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 upcoming community discussion and conversation.
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.
Community Survey - What Do You Think?
One of the first steps in the process is collecting community, citizen, and stakeholder feedback. Please visit our community survey page and spend some time sharing your open and honest feedback about what YOU THINK Eudora should plan for in the future. You can find the survey at the link below.
Hearing from the community is very important, so in addition to completing a survey please forward the link to this web page to your friends and neighbors and ask them to participate in the survey process as well. The survey will remain open for public comment through Friday, February 14, 2020 - Valentine’s Day. Thank you!
Community Town Hall Meeting
On Tuesday, February 4, 2020, the City hosted a Town Hall Meeting at City Hall to formally introduce the comprehensive planning process to the Eudora community. City staff and Dave Knopick, our planning consultant, led the presentation and discussion around several topics. We discussed and collected feedback about:
- What issues is Eudora facing?
- What assets does Eudora have?
- What goals/vision do we have for our community?
- What are the priorities that we must solve first?
The presentation, notes, and community feedback documents from the Town Hall Meeting are linked below. Please feel free to review them and add your thoughts to the conversation via the City’s ’Contact Us’ link on the website. There you will find a form to submit your feedback to the city and planners.
