Gain An Update on Kansas City Trails When Library Program Examines Next Steps for MetroGreen

A panel of experts from Kansas and Missouri discusses ongoing efforts to develop MetroGreen - a system of nature areas, greenways, and trails throughout the Kansas City area - on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

The panel includes Mark McHenry, Director of Kansas City Parks, Recreation, and Boulevards; Greg Ruether, Director of Parks Services for the City of Overland Park; and Janet Snook, Director of Liberty Parks and Recreation.  Tom Jacobs, director of environmental programs at the Mid-America Regional Council, opens the program with an overview of the MetroGreen system and its contemplated 1,144 mile network.

The discussion and a subsequent open forum is moderated by noted pedestrian Henry Fortunato, the Library's director of public affairs.

The program is co-presented by the Mid-America Regional Council, and co-sponsored by the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department, City of Overland Park, Liberty Parks and Recreation, and Bridging the Gap.

Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event. RSVP at  kclibrary.org or call 816.701.3407. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage at 10th & Baltimore.
