Your City – Your Ideas – Your Plan
The Gardner City Council approved the plan on April 16, 2018. Below is the approved plan and associated documents.
The Gardner Main Street Corridor Plan was funded as part of the 2017 Planning Sustainable Places program, which is supported by the City of Gardner, Mid-America Regional Council, Kansas Department of Transportation, and other public agencies. Members of the public contributed ideas throughout 2017, and these ideas became the foundation of this plan.
The Plan identifies land use strategies, transportation projects, and related sustainable development initiatives to advance economic competitiveness, build quality of life, improve corridor function and vitality, enhance mobility, anticipate climate conditions, and provide recreational amenities. It provides policy and design guidance for public improvements (such as transportation infrastructure, streetscapes, sidewalks, trails, public spaces) and future land uses along the corridor and in surrounding neighborhoods. It will be implemented through community partnerships and collaborations.
The City was assisted in this process by a planning team led by Confluence, a Kansas City based firm of landscape architects and planners. Other team members include Collins Noteis & Associates, Wilson & Company, and EPS.
