Imagine Downtown KC 2030 – What are they talking about?

How do you describe Downtown KC in one word?

That’s one question host Kemet Coleman has asked community leaders during the Imagine Downtown KC podcast interviews. The most recent podcasts to drop include Lynn Carlton, regional leader of planning at HOK and Downtown Council Chair, and Dr. Kimberly Beatty, chancellor of Metropolitan Community College. What words did they choose?

Dr. Beatty calls Downtown KC “unexpected – unexpectedly cosmopolitan” and from Lynn Carlton – “homegrown – a city where we are cultivating our own”.

Words from other leaders to date: vibrant, heart-beat, pride, love, special, opportunity, progress, connected, and ready!
