DeSoto....Wherefore Art Thou?

Has anybody ever looked at a map of Johnson County?

The City of DeSoto has a unique "shape" to its city limits. A good part of the city sits on the K-1o corridor, just west of Olathe & Lenexa. Lots of good commercial and industrial space.

Also, there is a mini building boom going on there with low density residential housing.

Now, here's the deal. Three cities border on DeSoto.............Olathe, Lenexa and Shawnee.
Some day one of these cities will annex DeSoto.

What is wild is that children who live in west Shawnee attend schools that are in the DeSoto USD 232.

Now, which city will eventually be successful in annexing DeSoto?

If I was a betting man, my money would be on Olathe. Personally, I'd rather see Shawnee do it, but I doubt if it would happen that way.

What a shame.
