This project is supported through a grant from the Mid-America Regional Council’s (MARC) Planning Sustainable Places Initiative - a regional program funded by the state-allocated Surface Transportation Program (Livable Communities Pilot) and intended to assist communities to explore transportation network improvements that enhance the quality of life and support long-term community growth. Project Understanding: • Strategic Opportunities • Economic Development • Community + Stakeholder Involvement • Aligning Expectations • Implement Recommendations
The Planning Sustainable Places (PSP) program continues the work of the Creating Sustainable Places initiative and the region’s Metropolitan Transportation Plan, Transportation Outlook 2040, to promote concepts consistent with sustainable communities and advance site-specific and project-specific activities within the centers-and-corridors planning framework.
The 2019 PSP grantees are located within the MARC eight-county metropolitan planning organization (MPO) boundary.
The Roeland Park project includes the area surrounding the 48th St and Roe Blvd. intersection and along Johnson Dr between Roe Blvd. and Roeland Dr.
