On Monday, May 18, at 5:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., the voices of citizens will be heard in the Greater Downtown Area Plan Public Meeting.
Downtown Kansas City is undergoing a transformation, experiencing an eruption of economic development in excess of $4.5 billion. This rebirth has been impressive, but more can be done. Many neighborhoods adjacent to the downtown loop are experiencing diverse challenges such as increasing development pressures without adequate plans, economic distress, and inadequacies in housing and infrastructure.
The Greater Downtown Area Plan will create policies designed to solve these challenges while continuing development and addressing the needs of all neighborhoods in the downtown area. The community will have the opportunity to review and comment on the draft plan. Once finalized, the document will guide decisions in the downtown area for years to come.
Members of the City Planning and Development Department will be available to answer questions. Admission is free. Click here  or call 816.701.3407 to RSVP. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage located at 10th and Baltimore.
