KANSAS CITY, Mo - Kansas City wants to hear from you about ideas that could benefit the metro.
Right now, the city is accepting applications for the KCMO Ideas Fair.
The event will bring together leaders and volunteers to works on ideas for community development.
The city is looking for a range of ideas from public health, art projects and crime prevention.
"Sometimes you don't need to reinvent something, all you need to do is take it and use it for yourself, so we're hoping we can inspire people by giving them access to some great projects that are new and innovative, that they haven't maybe thought of before but are easily done in their neighborhood,” KCMO Chief Innovation Officer Ashley Hand said.
The deadline for applications is Monday.
The best projects will be invited to exhibit at the ideas fair in October.
