Design Matters: Join the Conversation
Public Meetings, Tomorrow and Thursday
Last weekend was a deadly one for pedestrians in Kansas City, with four separate incidents leaving three pedestrians dead and one hospitalized. The City of Kansas City and project partners are holding two important public meetings this week that will examine solutions to improve safety, walkability, bikeability, and transit access along important corridors:
- Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 30: Gillham Corridor Bike Connections Study, 4:30-6:00pm at Cornerstones of Care, 300 E. 36th Street, KCMO, 64111. You’re invited to provide feedback on options for improving bike connections in the Gillham Road Corridor, which spans from approximately Brush Creek on the south to 18th Street on the north.
- Thursday, February 1: Swope/Prospect Connectivity Community Meeting, 6:00-8:00pm at Alphapointe, 7501 Prospect Avenue, KCMO, 64132. This meeting will review options for connectivity across US 71 and surrounding neighborhoods, and Right of Way (ROW) enhancements along Prospect Avenue.
When designed well, streets can connect communities, provide transportation options, build a strong local economy, and create a sense of place — all while making streets safer for all who use them, regardless of their mode of travel. These community meetings provide important opportunities for you to participate in the conversation and ensure that your voice is heard.
