Residents invited to help shape City's future

Three public sessions in August to gather public feedback

Post Date:07/17/2019 11:27 AM
The City of Kansas City, Missouri, is ready to hear what you have to say about the priorities you want set for the future.

The Office of Management and Budget has scheduled three interactive forums for residents to offer their input on how best to update our Citywide Business Plan. Councilmembers will need your feedback as they prepare to dive into the next budget, but you have a better chance of influencing the process if you can show up to participate.

At these sessions you’ll hear insights from city experts on a variety of topics ranging from economic development to housing to public safety. More importantly, you’ll be able to directly deliver your creative solutions to problems that affect the entire City. Your ideas may very well have a definitive impact on the final business plan.

Here's the schedule:
  • Saturday, Aug. 3, 9:30-11:30 a.m. at SE Community Center, 4201 E. 63rd St.
  • Monday, Aug. 5, noon-2 p.m. at National WWI Museum and Memorial, 2 Memorial Dr.
  • Thursday, Aug. 15, 6-8 p.m. at Briarcliff Church, 800 NE Vivion Rd.
This final update to the current four-year Citywide Business Plan must be adopted by Nov. 1, 2019.

Space is limited so reservations are encouraged. Please RSVP to reserve your seat. For more information, contact Kitty Steffens at 816-513-1308.
