Cass County Landfill

The Cass County Commission unanimously passes a resolution opposing a possible
Kansas City landfill on the county’s border

IN NEWS FROM Harrisonville, – On Wednesday, January 25th , as part of its regularly scheduled meeting, the Cass County Commission voted 3-0 on Resolution No. 23-11 opposing the location of a
landfill close to its border.

The resolution states “that numerous residents and stakeholders have expressed serious
concerns to the County Commission about a possible landfill on the county’s northern
border adjacent to the Creekmoor neighborhood in Raymore. Currently, it appears there
is no application pending with the City of Kansas City, Missouri, or the Missouri
Department of Natural Resources related to such a landfill; however, the discussion in the
community continues, and the location of the landfill at the considered site would have
long-term or permanent serious, destructive, and damaging impacts on surrounding areas
including northern Cass County. These impacts include environmental degradation,
diminishment of property values, and a chilling effect on commercial and residential
development among other negative and harmful effects.”

Cass County is united in opposition to a proposed Kansas City-based landfill near the
north county line, potentially located between 155th Street and 150 Highway.

The Cass County Commission will continue working with its
citizens, civic organizations, and local and state government partners to protect the
property rights of the county’s residents.
Cass County is a first-class county located in western Missouri, south of Kansas City on
the state line, and shares borders with Jackson, Johnson, Henry, and Bates counties. It is
currently Missouri’s 10th largest county and growing rapidly.
