What is Imagine Downtown KC?

The Downtown Council of Kansas City (DTC), in collaboration with leading civic organizations and the City of Kansas City, has launched a process to develop the community’s shared vision for development, economic inclusion, and recovery in the short-term and over the next 10 years. The Imagine Downtown KC 2030 Strategic Plan will serve as the primary vision-setting action framework to lead the ongoing revitalization of Downtown Kansas City.

This plan will address key issues and opportunities that are critical to Downtown’s recovery and its ability to grow into a stronger, more resilient urban center, including:

  • Economic Opportunity
  • Infrastructure
  • Housing & Affordability
  • Mobility & Transportation Networks
  • Open Spaces & Parks
  • Arts & Culture
  • Development Trends
  • Catalytic Development Projects
