WEST PENNWAY COMMUNITY STREET REDESIGN
This project was a Planning for Sustainable Places project funded by Mid-America Regional Council and championed by Kansas City Missouri Parks and Recreation and Westside Housing Organization.
On West Pennway there are opportunities to slow vehicle traffic, prioritize foot traffic, and generally make the street more responsive to community needs. One of the most important goals of this project was to develop consensus around a shared vision for the future of West Pennway with neighborhood leadership and local stakeholders at the forefront. Throughout the process, a steering committee was deeply involved in the planning process. Two community meetings were held to engage the full neighborhood and to help make key decisions and plan for the future of this project. The result of the project was an implementation plan that has community buy-in and will be taken forward in the coming years with support from Westside Housing Organization, the Westside Neighborhood Association, and others.
