City Councilman Scott Taylor has announced that a time capsule will be buried at the landscaped city parking lot now being constructed on the northeast corner of 99th & Holmes Rd. to provide additional parking for the Trailside Center just south of there.

Persons are being asked to provide pictures or small objects that depict life in south Kansas City today and/or essays of 200 words or less on what makes south Kansas City great in our time and/or what life will be like in 50 years.

These items can be dropped off at the Trailside Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday or from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays or mailed to the Center at 9901 Holmes Rd., KCMO 64131 through July 1.

A citizens committee will review all submittals before they are included in the time capsule which is to be opened 50 years from now.
