What is Olathe 2040?

How do you imagine Olathe in 2040? How will our neighborhoods, jobs, infrastructure, and technology change?

These are all important questions to consider as the City enters into the 20-year strategic planning process. Over the next several months, the City of Olathe will try to answer these questions, and many more.

Why does Olathe need a strategic plan? Olathe 2040 will:

  • Help define a bold vision for the City that distinguishes Olathe from other communities
  • Create big, audacious goals and clearly planned course with thoughtful strategies that are adaptable to possible futures
  • Establish targets and measures to ensure Olathe is making progress toward this vision for the future

City Council will guide the strategic plan with significant input from the public. The plan will consider things like infrastructure, economic vitality, and how Olathe will grow and flourish into the future.
