Neighborhood Prospects - Public Meeting #2

  • Lucile H. Bluford Branch, KCMO Public Library 3050 Prospect Avenue Kansas City, MO, 64128 United States (map)

Neighborhood Prospects is an urban design student and student / community service learning project that seeks to build momentum in revitalization efforts in historic neighborhoods along Prospect Avenue. Conducted by the Kansas City Design Center in collaboration with the Santa Fe Area Council and Key Coalition Neighborhood Association, the study focuses on creation of scenarios for a variety of infill development types that support community vitality and social, environmental and economic sustainability. 

Please join us for our second public meeting, where KCDC students led by Professor Joe Colistra will present work in progress and solicit community feedback. The presentation will include discussion of investment corridors, lot prioritization strategies, pedestrian linkages, infill scenarios, and development incentives. Community participation and feedback will support ongoing development of Neighborhood Prospects, with the hope that ideas generated in the project can contribute to a shared dialogue addressing ways to harness emerging public and private development activity along the Prospect Ave. corridor to support revitalization in surrounding neighborhoods.
