Public Meeting Being Held for Possible Relocation of Former City Hall
11/08/2018 11:53 AM

Leawood residents are invited to provide their comments on the possible relocation of old city hall near 96th and Lee Boulevard.

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.
