Tiffany Moore, the new executive director of the Martin City Community Improvement District (CID) as of November 1, brings a wealth of experience in community activism and construction management to her new job.
“I’m really excited to do this,” Moore said. “It will blend my community activism with my professional career.”
“I want to get to know everybody,” she explained, to determine what both new and established businesses need to continue to be successful.
She emphasized the importance of deciding on the next strategic moves to further improve Martin City.
Moore said she also wants to build the brand and recognition of Martin City and assure the area’s image keeps up with its growth and the new types of businesses located there. She said when people think of the Plaza, Brookside and other areas with a distinct character that a mental image immediately comes to mind.
“Martin City needs that same type of image,” she said.
Moore has been president of the Armour Hills Homes Association since 2013 and a board member since 2010. She also serves as a 6th Council District representative on the Kansas City Neighborhood Advisory Council, as the new appointee of Councilman Kevin McManus on the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee, as a member of the steering committee working on a new city plan for the Country Club/Waldo area and on numerous other community groups.
Professionally, the company that she has owned and operated since 2012, Built Kansas City, provides consulting services to the commercial design and construction industry.
A former adjunct faculty member at Johnson County Community College where she taught construction related courses, Moore has an associate degree from the Metropolitan Community College Business & Technology Campus in construction management and a bachelor degree from Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University) in industrial technology.
