(Kansas City, MO) – KC Water will start demolishing buildings at 103rd and Wornall on Monday. The project will rip out buildings and pavement and revert the land to a natural greenspace along the flood-prone Indian Creek. Join us for the demolition kick-off event on Monday, September 30, 2019. The City acquired the vacant property in October of 2018 in an effort to design a space that would minimize flooding near Indian Creek.
This project is part of the GOKC program approved by voters in 2017. The bid for the demolition process was awarded to Denton Excavating for $174,500.00. Demolition should be completed by early December.
Speakers at this event include Kansas City Mayor Pro Tem Kevin McManus, (6th District), 6th District-At-Large Councilwoman Andrea Bough, KC Water Director Terry Leeds, and KC Water Project Engineer Diana Johnson.
