Transportation Infrastructure Update

152/Kansas Project:

What You Should Know

The bridge on Route 152 over I-35 will be closed for 4 months beginning in May 2019. Lane closures on Kansas Street and Route 291 will also be expected during construction. The project is expected to be completed by the end of August 2020. Although the project is in Clay County, it impacts the entire Northland.

You can view a simulation of the new interchange, construction maps, and detour maps HERE.

Focus on Bridges

The Governor's $350 million bonding proposal could advance the funding of 4 bridge replacements in Platte County. The Platte County bridges are part of 28 total bridges in MoDOT's Kansas City District that are scheduled for repair or replacement in the current STIP. The Buck O'Neil Bridge is not on this list of bridges.

A NOTE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

DALE BROUK, FIVESTAR LIFESTYLES

Last week at the Board meeting we provided the 2018 Annual Report which sums up a remarkable year of accomplishments under the leadership of Past Chair Aaron Schmidt.

As I look forward to my role as the 2019 Chairman it comes with cautious optimism. The economy is strong today but headwinds from China, Brexit, and an ever changing political environment can be cause for reflection. These global headwinds coupled with state and local hurdles challenge us every day and it is how we work through them that make our companies better, stronger and more profitable. I have always lived by the motto “change is good, you must embrace it and make it work for you!”

The Platte County Economic Development Council (PCEDC) has its own set of challenges in 2019. We again are faced will a zero based budget, which in simple terms means our revenues equal our expenses. As with our own businesses we should not be satisfied with breaking even. I am asking you to please keep in the forefront what PCEDC has done for your business and Platte County.

I look forward to serving as Chairman and working with my team, Mike Duffy, Co-Chair, Mike Reik, Treasurer and the Past Chair, Aaron Schmidt. And as we all know, none of this happens without Alicia Stephens, Stephanie Deppen and Molly Ramirez. A special thanks to Stephanie Neppl for all her help in 2018 and we wish her the best of success in her new endeavors in Iowa.

Let 2019 bring success to ongoing projects such as KCI Airport and the Northland Youth Sports Complex. Read on to find ways you can involved. We can't do our work without your support.

Opportunities for Involvement

Strategic Plan Update

The mission of PCEDC is to promote, enhance and grow economic development in Platte County, MO. In so doing, we strive to improve the business environment, our communities and the quality of life in all of Platte County. In late 2017, consultant Janet Ady conducted interviews with key stakeholders and a year ago she provided her report. Based on her findings, we got to work on the new plan. 2018 was the year of refinement and the new plan is a result of that effort. All strategies are mapped out in detail in our strategic plan.

News & Updates

KCMO Pre-K Sales Tax Ballot Issue

As recommended by the Public Policy Committee, the PCEDC Board of Directors took a position regarding the proposed KCMO Pre-K sales tax ballot issue. John Elliott made the motion that although the PCEDC believes in the need for Pre-K education for ALL children, it does not support the proposed sales tax as a funding mechanism. Dale Brouk seconded the motion. Cathleen Flournoy and Nathan BeVelle abstained. The remaining Board members voted in favor and the motion passed. The PCEDC feels strongly that this discussion needs to occur with our leaders at the State.
