Neighborhood Design Public Open Houses
July 9, July 11, and July 17
The City of Prairie Village is in the process of considering updates to our zoning regulations, particularly as it relates to the design of single-family residential properties. A committee of local design professionals and city staff have been working together for several months to draft new regulations that would govern the design of single-family residential homes. This effort began at the direction of the City Council with the goal of protecting neighborhood character while balancing the changing demographics and needs of the Prairie Village community.
The proposed changes to the zoning regulations can be found at the link below. The changes include added requirements for greenspace, street trees, and the size of buildings and garages. These proposed changes are in addition to the changes that were adopted by the City Council in 2016, which decreased maximum building heights and increased side setback requirements.
The City will be holding open houses on July 9, July 11, July 17 to provide additional information and gather feedback from our residents. These open houses will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Prairie Village City Hall, located at 7700 Mission Road. Residents may come and go as needed.
