City of Liberty, MO
Planning & Development Dept.

Liberty, MO (pop. 30,000) ideally located northeast of Kansas City on Interstate 35; Liberty enjoys easy access to the amenities of the big city, while preserving the atmosphere of a small town. Founded in 1822 and named for the principle that Americans hold most dear, Liberty is the second oldest incorporated town west of the Mississippi River. Liberty has many varied land uses within the 29 square mile corporate boundaries. Liberty has a traditional downtown square that is the heart of the community, despite rapid commercial growth around the city’s perimeter. The downtown has been fortunate to retain the City’s public facilities and services, such as City Hall and the Police Department and Clay County Courthouse, Sheriff’s Department, and administrative offices. There are consistent and strong partnerships between the City, County, Chamber of Commerce, the Main Street program and the Liberty Economic Development Corporation. The Planning & Development Department is responsible for planning, building codes and inspections, code enforcement, temporary use permits, historic preservation, and partnerships with several community partners such as Historic District Review Commission (HDRC), Historic Downtown Liberty, Inc. (HDLI), Clay County Archives, Preservation & Development Commission (PDC) and Arts Commission.
