Residents have submitted their ideas on improving metro neighborhoods, and those ideas are now being shared with others at the inaugural ideas fair.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - City leaders on Saturday tried a creative way to improve Kansas City -– by asking residents what they wanted to see in their neighborhoods. Last month residents submitted their written ideas to the city. At Saturday's "Ideas Fair," those ideas were shared with other residents. This was the first year for the event. The goal is to come up with the best ideas that might actually be implemented throughout the city. "We have a lot of people in this city who have great ideas," said Mayor Sly James, "and we need to find a way to organize them, hear them and implement what we can." Some of the ideas presented Saturday included citywide Wi-Fi and creating a beautiful riverfront area.
