The City of Lee's Summit is committed to promoting renewable energy development and has been taking steps to make it easier for residents and businesses to go solar by streamlining the permitting process and removing barriers to solar development in our planning and zoning procedures. Solar-friendly changes such as these will reduce the time and expense it takes to install a solar energy system.
