Construction is underway on Johnson County's new 28-courtroom courthouse at the corner of Kansas Avenue and Santa Fe Street in Downtown Olathe. When the current courthouse comes down in 2021, it will create an open space in Downtown Olathe. What are your ideas for the County Square? You can share them at this link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/JoCoSquare
To ensure it reflects area needs and interests, the county along with a Steering Committee will consider public feedback to develop programming concepts that include activities the public could enjoy in the new space.
Additionally, the concepts that come out of our public comments will build upon previous planning efforts, such as the Envision Olathe Downtown Plan (2003), Streetscape Master Plan and Downtown Guidelines (2003), Downtown Active Transportation Plan (2017), Olathe's Bike Share Implementation Strategy (2018), and more. The outcome will be a phased approach to programming the space.
