RAIN TO RECREATION: STORMWATER AS A COMMUNITY ASSET AND CITIZENS ARE WILLING TO PAY
Lenexa, Kansas is a rapidly developing suburb in the Kansas City Metro. Presently its population is in excess of 45,000. In addition it is also home to an equal number of jobs. The land area of Lenexa is 34 square miles. See Figure 1. In 1995, about half of that land area was fully developed, the balance, due to lack of sanitary sewers, was almost totally undeveloped. In 1995, sewers began to be constructed in the undeveloped area west of Interstate 435. As a result, development along the K-10 corridor began to escalate.
