Leawood residents are invited to provide their
comments on the possible relocation of old city hall near 96th and Lee
The public meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, will take place at the current city hall, 4800 Town Center Drive. Persons wishing to speak will be give two minutes to make their remarks. Residents will have the opportunity to comment on the idea of relocating the former city hall building from its current place at 9615 Lee Blvd. to a lot
right next to the current city hall building.
The City doesn’t have details yet on what the move would look like, but has been looking at the idea of converting the old city hall into a community space with a small museum. Other ideas include demolition and replacement with a replica, or possibly moving the building south to Ironwoods Park.
If the old City Hall remains on its existing
site, it still must be moved some 40ft to the north, to make way for the
planned new fire-station in the location of the now razed police headquarters.
Council members will make a decision on its
next steps after receiving public input at the meeting on Monday.
