City’s New Plan
By John Sharp
Two virtual strategy sessions are scheduled to get public input on key aspects of KCMO’s proposed new long-range comprehensive plan being drafted by the Planning & Development Department to establish development priorities and guide land development decisions over the next 20 years or so.
The proposed plan labeled the KC Spirit Playbook will replace the city’s current comprehensive plan called FOCUS that was adopted in 1997.
The first of the virtual meetings will be from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 27. It is the first strategy session on mobility and will focus on complete streets, public transit, vehicles, biking and walking.
The second of the meetings will be the same time Thursday, August 5. It is the second strategy session on visibility and will focus on arts & cultural assets, historic preservation and parks & open space.
Persons may register online at playbook.kcmo.gov and an online meeting link will be emailed to them closer to the dates of the events.
