Thanks to All Who Helped Plan for the Future of Brush Creek
KC Water and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District (USACE) since April has held planning workshops to examine needs and potential improvement opportunities for Brush Creek from the Paseo to its confluence with the Blue River at Coal Mine Road. Community input made a difference.
Participants had the opportunity to speak with subject matter experts, view proposed improvements, and share ides for review and incorporation into the Master Plan. We could not have done this without you.
If you were unable to attend the workshops, you are still welcome to view proposed improvements here. This map is an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) document covering a very wide area. Use the “+ and -” feature at the top of the page to take a closer look at the part of the project area that interests you most.
Building the Vision
Using study data, guidance from project sponsors, engineering and sustainability best practices, and community comments and ideas, the project team created this map of proposed improvements.
Workshops for the Brush Creek Master Plan were collaborative meetings that allowed the project team, residents and businesses to address needs and opportunities in the project area.
