Coming Soon: Citywide Historic Preservation Plan
In 2023, the Department of Planning + Urban Design will launch the first ever Citywide Historic Preservation Plan in Kansas City, KS. This plan will define areas in need of historic surveys, project than can support existing landmarks and districts, and define a historic preservation strategy. This planning effort will rely on the engagement from and support of community members and businesses to realize future preservation efforts.
Historic Preservation is the conservation and safeguarding of historically significant properties and buildings. This is done through the continued use of historic and/or in-kind materials to repair and maintain the property and sharing the history of the property with the community. See a list of all Local, State, and Federally designated properties in Wyandotte County below.
