Green Valley Area Plan


The Green Valley Area Plan is a joint effort by Pottawatomie County, Kendig Keast Collaborative, and the Kaup Law Office through funds provided by a grant from the Ft Riley Joint Land Use Study.

The plan consists of two parts: A Land Use and Growth Management Plan and a Governance Plan.

Through the steering committee, town halls, surveys, and focus groups, the Plan creates a long-term vision for one of the fastest growing areas of our region. Through the Plan, the County will begin the process of developing strategies to provide desired services to this area in a high quality and cost efficient manner.

The last neighborhood plan for this area was done in 1992 shortly after the Blue Township Sewer District was created. Since then, more than 1100 new homes and 50 new businesses have been created in this area.


The Pottawatomie County Planning Commission adopted the Green Valley Area Plan on October 17, 2019. The Board of County Commissioners adopted the Plan by adoption of Resolution 2019-80
