Cedar Creek Area Plan + Overlay District

Olathe, Kansas

The City of Olathe selected a multi-disciplinary planning team led by Confluence to prepare an area plan and overlay district for the 4,700-acre Cedar Creek Area. The scope of the project includes engaging members of the community, the City, the development team, and other key stakeholders to refine the vision for growth and development within the area.  The advisory committee was comprised of City staff members, the development team, and the homeowner’s association.

Specific areas of focus for the planning study included future land use planning, regulatory considerations, architectural design standards, preservation of open space, transportation and infrastructure recommendations, and the use of sustainable best practices.  The resulting plan recommendations include an overlay district and the creation of a unique new zoning district specifically for use in the Cedar Creek area.
