Background
In late July 2004 the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to authorize and fund preparation of a new master plan for Thomas S. Stoll Memorial Park. The 80-acre park, located at 12500 W. 119th Street in Overland Park, was dedicated in 1981.

Planning Process
In October 2004 Patti Banks & Associates, a land-planning firm based in Kansas City, Missouri, was hired to serve as consultants for the project. The planning process was designed to include three public meetings. The first of these took place on December 11, 2004 and included an optional walking tour of the park where participants could discuss issues onsite with consultants and District staff. The second public meeting took place on Saturday, March 5, 2005 at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School, 12235 Rosehill, Overland Park.

During that meeting, the consultants presented two alternative concept plans based on public input from the first meeting. Using different configurations, both of the concept plans developed by the consultants for the second public meeting addressed drainage issues and included more parking, restrooms, playgrounds, pedestrian pathways, and multiuse fields. A maintenance compound was also included in both concepts.

Based on staff and public input following the presentation of the two concept plans on March 5, Patti Banks & Associates developed a Proposed Master Plan to be presented at the final public meeting in the planning process.

 

Presentation & Approval of the Master Plan
Patti Banks & Associates presented its proposed Master Plan for review and comment by the general public and the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Board of Commissioners at a Committee of the Whole meeting on Wednesday, May 18. At its regular monthly meeting held immediately after the Committee of the Whole meeting, the District Board unanimously approved the Master Plan as presented except for a more central alignment of a ballfield in the southeast portion of the park. Patti Banks & Associates is now working with District staff to develop cost estimates and phasing strategies for the approved plan.
