Switzer. You can view JCPRD's trailguide online or contact them directly at 913-438-7275 for more information.
 

Johnson County Public Works is responsible for the roads that are in the unincorporated portion of the
county. Questions about road projects in cities should be directed to the appropriate city’s public works
department. Pothole repairs and road repairs in the unincorporated part of the county are scheduled on an as needed
basis and as crews are available. If there is an area of particular concern, residents can call Public Works at 913-
715-8300 with locations to begin the repair process. You can also request service online. Public Works provides updates about road closures and construction projects on Nextdoor.

 

County code enforcement programs apply only to the unincorporated area (outside city limits). If you
do not know whether or not a property is inside a city, please contact our office and we can help direct
you to the proper authorities.

The Planning Department administers two (2) code enforcement programs: 1) building codes and 2)
zoning/land use codes.

Building Codes: While most of the building codes program is about overseeing new construction and
renovation of existing buildings, code enforcement in buildings is sometimes necessary due to life
safety issues, changes of use/occupancy, and in cases of unsafe/dilapidated buildings.

Zoning/Land Use Codes: The zoning/land use code enforcement program primarily addresses
prohibited land uses, things such as the number and location of RVs and hauling trailers, keeping of 
animals, outdoor storage of inoperable/wrecked vehicles, and outdoor accumulations of junk, trash and
debris.

Citizens can make inquiries or complaints through the department email contacts by calling the Planning Department at 913-
715-2200.

We are always pleased to hear that our libraries are popular places where residents want to spend more time.

The library restructured hours in 2015 to open earlier – based on our own door counts. More people were arriving early, fewer were staying later. We were opening at 10 a.m. and moved to open at 9 a.m. and close at 8 p.m., based on the data revealed in our usage statistics and to reflect what a majority of our patrons were doing.

Four of our libraries around the county have Sunday hours – Antioch, Blue Valley, Central and Corinth – and we hope one of them is conveniently located for you. Our door counts on Sundays have shown that we’re offering a substantial number of service hours for our communities. We’ll be opening a 14th library in 2018 in Shawnee, and we’re determining whether to have Sunday hours there. We’ll continue to analyze our visitor traffic to ensure we’re open when we need to be and where we need to be.
