Andover Announces Kick-off of Comprehensive Plan Process

Extensive Community Outreach Planned

(Andover, KS) – The City of Andover is launching a 10-year Comprehensive Plan process to provide the community with a compelling vision and plan that will be used to guide decision-making and development. The Plan will provide an inclusive framework for the orderly and consistent planning of City neighborhoods, commercial corridors, trails, and public open spaces. It will consider plans for future City growth with a strong emphasis on land use, development and redevelopment patterns, infrastructure, transportation and mobility, housing diversity, and urban design.

The Comprehensive Plan process will include extensive community outreach opportunities that include interviews, a community survey, youth and business/development meetings, virtual public open houses, and pop-up events. The public can learn more about the project by visiting www.activateandover.com that includes information about the comprehensive planning process and ongoing community engagement opportunities. A direct mail piece will also be sent to Andover residents that will guide the public in how to get involved. The City will also highlight up-to-date community engagement activities on their Facebook and Twitter feeds that can be found at https://www.facebook.com/CityofAndoverKS/ and https://twitter.com/CityofAndoverKS.

 “In order to create a clear path to a successful plan, listening to the community will be paramount to help build consensus on what future growth means while preserving the city’s history, character, culture, and heritage,” stated Ronnie Price, Mayor of Andover.

The goal is to finalize the Andover Comprehensive Plan by summer of 2023.
