We recently completed the first community survey in our Vision 2040 process, and we were blown away by the participation and feedback! We received 1,222 survey responses from Lenexa residents and people who work in Lenexa.

If you didn’t get a chance to take the first survey, there’s still opportunity for you to give your input. A second survey is open until Aug. 15.
