Background and Additional Info:
The City of Kansas City, Missouri and its residents partnered to develop an action plan the entire community can support. The plan sets priorities and guides decisions to assure Kansas City is a thriving, people-centered community and a successful model for other American cities to follow for future generations.
Seven distinct, but interwoven component plans were developed to detail the action steps needed to make the FOCUS vision and policy principles a reality.
Neighborhood self-assessments were performed as a part of the FOCUS process. There were two objectives for neighborhoods during these self-evaluations: to self-identify its neighborhood type from the FOCUS Neighborhood Prototypes Plan and to develop improvement strategies that would direct neighborhood improvement, a “To Do” list/Action Steps incorporating participation by the neighborhood, community partners, and the City.
