  • COMMUNITY MEETINGS SCHEDULED FOR KC PARKS BOULEVARDS AND PARKWAY PROJECT. The Parks and Boulevard system in Kansas City is one of the jewels of our city.  The Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners began in 2006 to adopt standards which impact what can be done within the City’s Right of Way, and also set expectations on what should be developed and maintained on the property adjacent to park property.  As older parts of the City are reimagined and newer parts are being evaluated for development, it is the intention to have standards which allow for quality development to be made an enforceable aspect of the development code. The Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners have been leading a process with numerous suggestions that will impact all parts of the park system.  The public is invited to weigh in on these changes by attending any or all of the meetings to let City staff, elected and appointed officials hear feedback on the proposals.MIDTOWN: Tuesday, January 27 @ 6-7:30 p.m.Maincor Offices, 3215 Main Street, KCMO 64111,NORTHLAND: Wednesday, January 28 @ 6-7:30 p.m.Northland Neighborhoods Inc.
