Quality of Life

A community’s quality of life represents the standard of health, comfort, and happiness experienced by the people who live, work, and play here. Lee’s Summit provides a high quality of life to its residents, not only by providing quality jobs and homes, but also through community amenities such as parks, trails, cultural facilities, and great schools. Parks, recreation, and cultural resources are critical to achieving a high quality of life and a safe, fun, and healthy environment.

To maintain a high quality of life for our residents, we must continue to invest in progressive services and amenities to ensure the finest quality of life for all generations.
