Kansas City voters approved $800 million in bonds in April 2017 to fund a capital improvements program for streets, sidewalks, flood control and other infrastructure needs over the next 20 years. Even though you’re not likely to give infrastructure much more than a passing thought, you can easily spot the signs all around you. It’s the sidewalk that you walk on or the bridges that you cross. It’s the park where your children play or even the building that shelters animals in distress.
These projects form the foundation for a Capital Improvement Program and Kansas City is building one of the very best in the country.
Capital improvement projects may include new construction or renovation of city buildings, reconstruction of streets, repairing or constructing sidewalks as well as making public areas ADA compliant. These long-deferred projects will be easy to recognize because they will carry the GO KC brand.
