Revealing the Economics of Land Use and City Finance

Mayor David Alvey and the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas invites you to a presentation on Building Community Wealth in KCK: Revealing the Economics of Land Use and City Finance.


How can KCK and Wyandotte County grow in ways that build community wealth and provide a prosperous future? What areas of our community offer the greatest potential for high-return, long-term growth? How can we create future development that covers infrastructure costs, enables improvements in municipal services, and boosts prosperity?


Join us on October 31st at 8:00 A.M at the Reardon Center for a thought-provoking presentation and community discussion on these questions led by Joe Minicozzi, founder of Urban3. Urban3 has recently completed an analysis of KCK that measures the economic effect of land uses within Kansas City, Kansas and Wyandotte County. Using engaging and colorful maps, this talk will explore the imperfections of property tax valuation and the relative return-on-investment from different development patterns.
