How does the CNI relate to these other planning processes?

These past and on-going planning processes will serve as the bases for creating an integrated community vision for land use, economic development, housing and transportation within the study area. Unlike the other plans which are broader in nature, the Paso Gateway Choice Neighborhoods Transformation Plan will provide stie specific recommendations and conceptual site plans ot meet the goals for neighborhood revitalization. These include:

  • Conceptual plans for replacement housing for the 134 units at Chouteau Courts + additional mixed-income housing (within and outside of the study area)
  • Housing Market Study that identifies what the market can support
  • Reuse strategy for the 6.8 acre Chouteau Courts site
  • Development options for key sites
  • Implementation strategy
  • Phasing strategy
  • Implementation budget

Planning Processes

A number of planning processes have taken place for areas in and around the study area.  The findings, recommendations and priorities of these studies will be integrated into this plan.


The Truman Plaza Area Plan (recently completed)

Led by City Planning and Development Department

The Truman Plaza Area Plan will serve as the overarching city document to guide planning and development within the Truman Plaza study area. The plan was completed through a comprehensive planning process that included significant community input. The vision and strategies outlined in the final document will be incorporated into the planning process for the transformation plan.

Paseo West Needs Assessment

Led by EDC

In support of on-going business retention efforts within the Paseo West Neighborhood, the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri (EDC) is conducting a planning and issue prioritization process for the Paseo West Neighborhood. The plan will develop a list of prioritized implementation steps to address the specific issues identified during the needs assessment.

Mid-America Regional Council (MARC)

As the designated metropolitan planning organization for the Kansas City metropolitan area, MARC has completed a number of studies on a wide range of issues including housing, transportation, and economic and sustainable development.
