Yeah. Unless you plan on living in an apartment at ground level in the old downtown Parkville (not even sure if this is available), you need not be worrying about flooding.

Lee's Summit has one of the highest tax levies in the suburban Kansas City area. The school levies for local cities are: Blue Springs R-4 5.3893, Grandview 5.45, Hickman Mills 5.54, Independence 5.0841, Ray-Pec 5.0397, Lee's Summit R-7 5.8116. I don't believe that money is being spent as wisely as it could be.

The school district is good if your child is well above average. If not, I would seek another area.

Default Flying in to KC-- Parkville South ad Lee's Summit West

Thanks again for the information. My wife and I are coming to KC tomorrow to look at the areas where Parkville South and LS West high schools are located. I'm sure that we will be looking at the area subdivisions; Meadows of Winterset, Hills of Walden, etc.. Which subdivision or other locations should we focus?

Smile Hello!

Arrived in KC on Wednesday and have looked at Lee's Summit and Parkville. Yes, Parkville is definitely in the booming stage compared to Lee's Summit. It was fun looking at Riss Lake, the Hills of Monticello, Brenner's Ridge, even the established neighborhoods in Klamm and Platte Woods.
Thanks for the info for it helped us in our decision making.
