Zone changes and General Plan amendments require Planning Board review and the approval of the City Council. Zone changes require a General Plan amendment if the proposed zoning district is not consistent with the General Plan.
Applications to amend the General Plan are accepted during the months of January and June. For more information, please visit
First, determine the zoning district your property is located in by checking the City's zoning map or calling the Planning Division at (785) 587-1853.
Next, look up the permitted uses for your zoning district. If your use is not listed in the permitted use section, check the conditional use section to determine if your use requires a Conditional Use Permit (CUOP).
Some general uses that typically require a CUP include drive-through restaurants, gas stations, childcare facilities, and educational facilities. For more information, please visit
