Kansas City Brownfields Initiative Meeting
Thursday, November 14, 2019
The public is invited to attend a meeting of the Kansas City Brownfields Initiative. The meeting is to be held on Thursday, November 14, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Unified Government City Hall located at 701 N. 7th St. 5th Floor Conference Room Kansas City, Kansas.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grants money to investigate and clean up properties, known as “Brownfields,” which often are vacant and underused due to real or perceived contamination.
At this public meeting, discussion will be encouraged concerning a proposal to seek EPA grant funds to investigate and cleanup brownfield sites in Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri. Sites in the KCK historic northeast and midtown neighborhoods and near Quindaro Boulevard, including a site at 17th & Quindaro, will be discussed.
Community participation in this process is highly encouraged. The public is invited to learn, comment and provide input that will help improve grant proposals and assist in decisions that promote the removal of blight and contamination, create healthier places to live, work and play, and create jobs and new economic opportunities.
