The City of Lee’s Summit contracted with engineering firm Crawford, Murphy and Tilly (CMT) to develop a new Master Plan and Business Plan for the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport. Having constructed and implemented a majority of the previous Master Plan and Business Plan recommendations, the recent increase in aircraft operations and significant interest in parcels owned by the airport that provide airfield access led the City to begin planning a fresh 20-year vision for the airport and its users.

These two plans are complete and will be initiated together to leverage synergies that can be realized between the documents. Both documents are rooted in airport staff, airport stakeholder, and user and community input and coordination.

In addition to showing off the plans, a presentation a survey pin was made to Deputy Director of Public Works Bob Hartnett in recognition to his contribution to the development of the airport.
