Smaller Lot Single-family Residential Lots



Attainable housing is a stated goal in both the Ignite Strategic Plan and the Ignite Comprehensive Plan. Specifically, the comprehensive plan has the following goal- Create and maintain a variety of housing options, styles and price ranges.  The Comprehensive Plan categorizes residential into three groupings that increase in density from Residential 1-3.  Residential 2 allows for smaller single-family lot sizes.  The comprehensive plan has an objective to change the overall housing mix to 65% Residential Category 1, 20% Residential Category 2 and 15% Residential Category 3.  The idea behind this goal was to produce a majority of housing stock over the next 20 years that continues the traditional Lee’s Summit neighborhood while providing the necessary density for housing variety and fiscal sustainability.  There are a variety of approaches to allow housing to be constructed in a more efficient manner.  Reducing lot width is one way to increase the amount of housing per linear foot of street.  The attached memo contains some visual examples of the narrower lots and basic dimensional requirements.
