City of Shawnee

Shawnee Pioneer

Neighborhood Grant Available
The City has $300 in grant funds available annually to each of the neighborhoods in our Neighborhood Focus Program, including Shawnee Pioneers. These funds can be used for any type of project or activity that benefits the entire neighborhood. Applications for 2019 projects or activities were due on March 1, 2019. No grant applications were submitted, so there will not be a neighborhood meeting to comment on the use of the funds.

If Shawnee Pioneers residents are still interested in applying for a grant to undertake a project or activity in 2019, contact Lauren Grashoff.

Shawnee Pioneers Neighborhood Updates
The City annually provides a review and update of City actions taken towards meeting the goals of the Shawnee Pioneers Neighborhood Action Plan. The 2018 Action Plan update is now available.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Neighborhood Planner Lauren Grashoff at 913-742-6226 or at
