Strang Line

The neighborhood is located just north of downtown Overland Park, from 75th to 79th streets, between Metcalf and Lowell.

Named after William Strang's Inter-Urban Rail, neighbors from Strang Line first met in 1997.

The group has provided input to the city to ensure improved pedestrian linkages between residential and commercial areas, and successfully petitioned for and received traffic calming circles throughout the neighborhood.

Neighbors have started partnering with the Historic Overland Park and South Lake neighborhoods for joint meetings and social events.
