Rock Creek Corridor Study


The Rock Creek Corridor Study is a Planning for Sustainable Places (PSP) project utilizing funds awarded by the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC). The City of Mission has partnered with Wilson & Company, Engineers and Architects who are leading a team of planners, engineers, and landscape architects (Hoxie Collective, SWT Design, and BikeWalkKC) to analyze the Rock Creek corridor from Woodson to Roeland Drive, and from Johnson Drive to Martway. This initiative will provide a unique opportunity to address overlapping transportation, amenities, economic development, housing, and environmental needs along the trail which will help shape the future of the Rock Creek corridor and the downtown commercial district. This effort aims to enhance mobility, safety, and quality of life in Mission.

The project team will begin by presenting an existing conditions analysis that covers land use, transportation, environmental, energy, and climate change impacts. After gathering input from residents, stakeholders, and government officials about the corridor’s future potential, the team will deliver a summary of recommendations, concluding with a plan that aims to protect residential and commercial areas, implement stormwater best practices and flood hazard mitigation, improve public amenities, enhance green space along the trail, and explore a complete streets approach on Martway. The plan will outline steps to create a more vibrant, livable, and sustainable community for all.

The process will be completed in four steps:

  1. Existing Conditions Analysis
  2. Public Engagement 
  3. Draft Recommendations 
  4. Rock Creek Corridor Plan 

How can you get involved?

There will be several opportunities, and here are a few to start…


Please take a SHORT SURVEY to tell us more about how you use the Rock Creek Trail and areas around it. Give us feedback about how and where you think improvements can be made so we can consider them in our final plan!

Also, visit the areas in Mission from Woodson (downtown) to Roeland Drive (east side), and from Johnson Drive to Martway. Take pictures of the areas you LOVE as well as the areas that need improvement – are there places that need shade, art, access to neighborhoods/businesses, or ways we can make it more safe? Take pictures and post on socials with the hashtag:
