South Kansas City leaders like the resume the area is putting together as it tries to gain stronger economic footing in the metropolitan landscape.
So it’s time for an economic summit.
Developers behind some of the more than $7 billion worth of planned construction projects will be on hand to talk about the work at the South Kansas City Alliance’s summit at Avila University, 11901 Wornall Road, from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, with registration at www.southkcalliance.org.
Leaders from the Center, Grandview, Hickman Mills and Kansas City school districts will join in, along with several political leaders.
“We want people to know about all those projects,” said alliance president Stacey Johnson-Cosby, referring to developments like Cerner’s giant campus, Burns & McDonnell’s expansion and remakes of the Truman Corners and Red Bridge shopping centers.
“We want people to know about all of the positive and innovative things going on in the school districts.”
