The public is invited later this month to learn about an updated reuse proposal for the closed Blenheim Elementary School at 2411 E. 70th Terrace.
Sunflower Development Group is working to convert the property, part of the Kansas City Public Schools repurposing initiative, to housing.
Sunflower for the second time will submit a Low Income Housing Tax Credit application to the Missouri Housing Development Corp., seeking approval in the fall 2016 funding round.
The school district has a memorandum of understanding with the city of Kansas City to pursue redevelopment as affordable senior housing, partly using Community Development Block Grant and other public funds.
The event is scheduled for the Tri-Blenheim Neighborhood Association meeting at 6:30 p.m. June 27 at Research Medical Center, 2316 E. Meyer Blvd., in meeting rooms near the cafeteria.
