Visibility Strategy Sessions

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

BACKGROUND

Visibility is one of four Strategy Session topics that will help distill existing policy, ongoing engagement, and high level discussion into a set of policy proposals. Those policies will then be bolstered by action steps devised by the KC Spirit Playbook planning staff and refined through public input and discussion.

If you aren't able to attend a Strategy Session, you can always still participate by completing the surveys at the bottom of this page.

Visibility can best be described as the elements of our city that exist in plain sight and contribute to the desirability of our community. These are the environments we collectively own and program, places that provide opportunities for recreation, our cultural assets, and the physical character of development.

Topics to be covered at Visibility Strategy Sessions include:

  • Urban Design
  • The Public Realm
  • Parks & Open Space
  • Historic Preservation
  • Arts & Cultural Assets
