Provide comment on the new Johnson County Square in Olathe

Post Date:12/09/2019

Construction is underway on Johnson County’s new courthouse at the corner of Kansas Avenue and Santa Fe Street in downtown Olathe. When the new courthouse opens in January 2021, the old courthouse will be demolished, creating a new space known as Johnson County Square.

Feedback from the public and a steering committee resulted in family-oriented concepts for the square suitable for all ages. Johnson County Government is now seeking further public input on these new concepts.

Residents are encouraged to share their opinion about the concept designs and the types of amenities you would like to see in the new public space. Take the online survey about the County Square today.
