Special Area Studies

Occasionally, the city undertakes and adopts special studies beyond the scope of the annual Comprehensive Plan update.

These have included specific issues or needs such as neighborhood or corridor studies, design concept plans, and studies resulting in future land use plans and goals for newly annexed areas.

Forward OP

Forward OP, Overland Park’s community vision, was a process to develop a path of continued success for the next 20-25 years in our community.

The community came together in 2018 to give input on the future of Overland Park as a place to thrive, succeed and prosper. To complement these aspirations, the plan is grounded in an understanding of current conditions and trends. The vision plan aligns all aspects of our community life and identify goals and specific actions for Overland Park to implement.
