Purpose: The purpose of the overlay district designation is to encourage development that will be a major asset to Olathe. This area represents a major gateway into Olathe and, as such, gives a “first impression” of the City for visitors and residents. Therefore, it is important that the development of this area be highly attractive and functional. Further, the purpose of this section is to promote a level of quality that can serve as the basis for the high quality of development that Olathe desires. Individual developers are encouraged to expand upon these guidelines to attain a level of development quality that will ultimately generate an economically enhanced and pedestrian friendly area for Olathe.
