This is a great opportunity for Roeland Park to further a variety of planning steps that have already been completed, consolidating those steps into a comprehensive and cohesive plan for these two primary transit corridors.

This grant will allow Roeland Park to plan for a future that not only connects and brings life to these main corridors, but will also stand the test of time.

The acquisition of the Roe Boulevard and Johnson Drive Corridor grant Plan would allow the continued work of creating a community for all ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles in Roeland Park. This project is in the heart of the city and connect not only Roeland Park, but other cities as well.
