A Community for All Ages…

The city of Lee’s Summit has been designated as a Community for All Ages by the Mid-America Regional Council. This recognition program requires the city to be welcoming and accessible to residents of all ages. The dedication of each individual and business is required to help our city succeed and maintain its status as a Community for All Ages. Consequently, City staff welcome those individuals who have experienced difficulty with mobility and accessibility in a particular business to tell managers about their experience. Some of these difficulties can include, but are not limited to, difficulty entering and exiting a business and/or restroom, maneuvering within the aisles, etc.
