GO KC Sidewalk Update: Public Meetings for Zone 2 (20th St. to 48th St.)
KCMO Public Works is conducting sidewalk design inspections as part of the  GO KC sidewalk program . Inspection areas include Zone 1 from the city limits to 20th Street, Zone 2 from 20th Street to 48th Street, and Zone 3 from 48th Street to the south city limits. The first round of design inspections is split between three zones and focuses on priority areas 1, 2, and 3 (approved by City Council in August 2017) in our sidewalk demand analysis. In April 2017, Kansas City voters overwhelmingly supported an $800 million capital improvements program to remake Kansas City's infrastructure over the next 20 years. One of the major selling points for residents was the promise to create a city-funded sidewalk repair program that would eliminate homeowner assessments. To that end, some $150 million is being dedicated to sidewalks.

RAMP Program grants for South Hyde Parkers
There is still availability for $15k grants for home repairs/improvements from Westside Housing’s ‘RAMP Program’. These are approved on a first come, first served basis so do not delay if interested! These grants are issued as a loan/lien and are forgiven at $3k per year, so ownership is required for 5 years after the grant is issued. Should you need to sell the property before the 5 years is up, you will owe the prorated amount. A 1-1 or 2-1 match on improvement funds may be required based on your annual household income.

For more info on eligibility and requirements, you can contact Cliff at 816-708-0586 or cpouppirt@westsidehousing.org
