Is Overland Park headed in the ‘right direction?’ Here’s what voters said in a new survey

Overland Park survey

A survey of 500 registered voters in Overland Park conducted in May shows that, in general, residents' mood about the city is "extremely positive," according to the Public Opinion Strategies, the conductor of the poll. Despite high marks overall, some parts of the city differ in their level of satisfaction, and ares like criminal justice and housing policy got less glowing responses. File image.

Overland Park gets high marks from its citizens on quality of life, the tax rate to pay for it and on the speed of growth, but there are still some questions among residents about the justice system and housing options, according to a citywide survey released this week.

The survey, a joint effort by the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City, showed a city with a generally glowing approval rating.
