Urban Planning and Land Use
Land Development in Wyandotte County requires good coordination between the development community, neighborhoods, and staff of the Unified Government.
To accomplish this, the Unified Government requires development applications to go through a development review process where every application goes through a detailed review by development review staff. Staff’s role through the process is to administrate and coordinate the development standards of the city and county.
This begins by providing direction based on applicable policies, guidelines, codes and professional standards and principles. To access application packages and/or forms to get you started with your development, please click on the one of the links below.
In an effort to reduce
plan sets and improve communication between the applicant and the plan
reviewer, the UG is working towards streamlining the plan review process by
adding Electronic Document Review (EDR). EDR will be available for the
Department of Urban Planning and Land Use applications (Board of Zoning Appeals, City Planning Commission, and Landmarks Commission)
and the Development Review Committee (commercial building permit applications).
Staff will utilize Adobe Pro to review and generate plan review comments for
these applications. Applicants are able to view staff comments with Adobe Reader.
There are obstacles
for us to work though before a final product is rolled out, but we are able to
offer a soft opening of this process as we continue to work towards our 2014
goals. Our goals are to allow for full electronic submittals though an online
application or ftp site, accept credit card payments, and improve the DRC
inspection process. We appreciate your
participation in the soft opening and welcome all comments and suggestions on
the development of this process.
process aims to:
the need to print large-scale plans; annual savings projected for development
communication and collaboration across internal and external teams.
concurrent reviews by multiple reviewers on a single set of plans or documents.
savings in time associated with archiving.
The EDR guidelines are in addition to the
specific document submittals to support your application. Reference the checklist
sheet provided with each application for the documents required.
