From Vision to Reality

Since 2010, the Creating Sustainable Places Coordinating Committee has led a regional effort to make the Kansas City region more vibrant, connected and green,

With funding from a three-year HUD Sustainable Communties Planning Grant, and building on existing local and regional plans, we have a lot of accomplishments to celebrate:

  • Guiding principles for sustainable development.
  • New tools for visualization and analysis.
  • New data and maps, including an updated Natural Resources Inventory.
  • A sustainable code framework for local governments and indicators to evaluate progress.
  • An equity network that is working to make sure everyone in the region has the opportunity to participate, contribute and connect.
  • Demonstration projects that tie it all together.

Please join us as we celebrate the successes that are making our regional vision a reality and talk about where we go from here.
