The City of Merriam is excited to continue working with the community to create a plan for a portion of the Shawnee Mission Parkway corridor! The purpose of the study is to create a plan that successfully guides revitalization and/or redevelopment of this area while addressing future land use, environmental, and transportation/ infrastructure needs.
The City will be holding a series of public meetings to discuss the corridor study over the coming months. These meetings will include a brief project presentation and an interactive planning workshop – so please bring your thoughts and ideas for enhancing this important area of Merriam. The planning team will be working with the surrounding community and key stakeholders, such as developers, local businesses and Johnson County Transit, to define a vision for improving this corridor.
These meetings will be crucial to the planning process. The ideas generated will be further evaluated and explored by the study team, and a series of refined alternative concepts will be shared at each subsequent meeting.

On June 19th, the City of Merriam hosted the second of several public meetings to discuss the future of the Shawnee Mission Parkway Corridor. Based on the information and feedback provided by the attendees of the first public meeting, the planning team presented five different concepts representing five different levels of redevelopment. The public was then asked to provide comments on what they did and did not like about those concepts.

The planning team will use the feedback received to reduce the total number of concepts and incorporate more of the ideas that were well received. Below are the five concepts presented at the meeting. If you have any comments or questions regarding these concepts, please email them to Bryan Dyer.

As a reminder, these plans are only concepts and are based on the feedback of those who have attended the prior public meetings. These do not represent adopted or final plans for this area.
