Leawood Civic Association
 
What is the Leawood Civic Association?
 
The Leawood Civic Association's purpose is to promote and protect the best interests of the Leawood residents.  The LCA has taken the place of the original HOA as a neighborhood civic association, and although Leawood still has officially filed covenants with Jefferson county, our main purpose is not to regulate homeowners, but to enhance and unify the Leawood community experience. Of course, we all have an interest in promoting general adherence to county laws and zoning regulations however the LCA asks that each resident contact Jefferson county directly with questions and concerns in that area.  The LCA is also NOT the Leawood Park Board. The LCA does not handle park maintenance, reservations etc., but you can contact them from our Contact page with questions.  Officially known as the Leawood Metropolitan Recreation and Parks District "LMRPD", they are the taxing entity for our district set up to use our property taxes pay for park maintenance. While the LMRPD is funded by your property taxes, the LCA is funded solely by your membership donations and run by volunteer residents! As a volunteer organization, the LCA does do quite a lot for Leawood, and can do more with your help.
 
 
What Does the LCA Do?
  • The LCA maintains the north entrance sign and landscaping at Jay Ct. and Bowles. The LCA pays the electrical bill for the spot lights and coordinates with the county for irrigation and permitting of the entrance.
  • The LCA sponsors many neighborhood activities including the annual Leawood BBQ picnic, Easter egg hunt and Santa party
  • The LCA coordinates 2 neighborhood garage sales and a Clean-Up Day in June with roll-off dumpsters for your trash and debris and a nominal charge.
  • The LCA provides a monthly newsletter to the community to provide information and ongoings, including local advertisers and businesses.
  • The LCA sponsors this neighborhood website and a Facebook page. This website has many features including Member Directory, Calendar of events, Classified ads, Business Directory and more.
  • The LCA also sponsors the Leawood Scholarship Fund which provides a $500 scholarship for 1 or 2 Leawood high school seniors each year!
  • The LCA holds monthly meetings on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7pm at Leawood elementary, except during the summer months of June-Aug, they are held at Leawood Park . All residents welcome!
