Hey Clay County! Spring may be coming to a close, but these updates aren’t coming to an end anytime soon! June was a busy month here so let’s get into it!

Commission Update June 2018

Meeting: May 21, 2018

A Law Enforcement Memorial Garden Project from KCMO Counsel Woman Hall was presented to the County Commission. Commission members showed full support for this project coming to Clay County. Learn more about this project.


Remember when I discussed zoning with Kipp Jones in the February Commission Update Video? Yes? No? Here are some recent zoning updates from this May 21 meeting.

Two orders were approved by the Commission:

  • The first was for a family split parcel
  • The second was a resolution that two neighbors in Clay County would split their property line fairly so they both benefit. Yay teamwork!

The other zoning item on the agenda was regarding an application for new residential zone North of Liberty. This item has been postponed to a future meeting
