Specific Plan S2
We are creating a specific plan for your neighborhood!
The City of Blue Springs is beginning the process of developing the Specific Area Plan for the area east of Adams Dairy Parkway to Shrout Road, south of Moreland School Road, north of Colbern Road, and east of the cities future growth boundary. The area is designated as the S2 Neighborhood. With your help, this plan will detail the Community Character, Land Use & Development, Priorities & Strategies, and Development Concepts desired by your neighborhood. We have already completed the Specific Plans for the N1, N2, C1, C2, and S1 Neighborhoods. The S2 Neighborhood is our next focus area.
The Policies, Goals and Targets of the city-wide Comprehensive Plan guide the creation of each Specific Plan. Just as importantly, the City develops Specific Plans utilizing your neighborhood's input, demographics, and land use data. That cannot be stressed enough; we need your input to better define your neighborhood's priorities and act as a guide for public improvements and private development decisions.
City staff invites the public to a meeting on July 12, 2018 (6:00-7:30 PM at Timothy Lutheran Ministries located at 301 SW Wyatt Road, Blue Springs, MO 64014) to discuss the future of development in the S2 Area. Any and all comments are welcome and encouraged. As an end result of this meeting, the S2 Area Plan should acknowledge both the desired future development of the S2 Area and the development most likely to occur. Whenever possible, the City will use the outcomes of this meeting to guide future development. To review the PowerPoint presentation click here.
Specific Plan Process
The City has synthesized the preliminary Area Assessment with the information collected during the Community Dialogue & SWOT (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities & Threats) exercise in July. Using this information, the City has developed a Specific Plan to present to your neighborhood for final review and comments.
Your Specific Plan is Part of the Comprehensive Plan
The City of Blue Springs adopted the Comprehensive Plan in July 2014. This Comprehensive Plan framework is based on three scales: the General Plan (city-wide-scale). Specific Plans (area-scale), and Development or Projects Plans (site-or project-scale). The General Plan establishes broad, long-range, yet flexible guidance based on the community's values, vision and its role within an evolving region. Through Specific Plans, it also enables data, analysis, and public participation that is more precise to the conditions and opportunities linked to each different area. This framework allows information specific to each area to influence decisions and investment, while still viewing all development decisions through the lens of the city-wide General Plan.
