ORDINANCE NO. 180603

 

Accepting a grant from the Greater Kansas City Health Care Foundation to expand Life X efforts to mobilize residents and promote community-based solutions that reduce social inequities, leading to healthier communities where zip code no longer dictates life expectancy in Kansas City; estimating revenue in the amount of $115,000.00 in the Parks and Recreation Fund; appropriating $115,000.00 into the Parks and Recreation Fund; designating requisitioning authority.

 

WHEREAS, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 170727 on October 26, 2017, adopting the 2017 Update of the Citywide Business Plan including City Goals; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council reinforced the KCMO Health Department’s commitment to addressing root causes of health inequity in the social, political, and economic system, emphasizing action on the processes and structures that generate health inequity, rather than primarily remediating its consequences; and

 

WHEREAS, ‘Increasing overall life expectancy and reducing health inequities in the zip codes with the lowest life expectancy and the additional zip codes with the least improvement in life expectancy’ was written in as a City Goal that included Departmental Objectives and Strategies for Neighborhoods and Healthy Communities; and

 

WHEREAS, the KCMO Health Department acknowledged it could not improve life expectancy alone, and on November 17, 2017, convened City leaders and community partners at the Life X 2.0 Summit, urging City staff to break out of historical silos and work across departments to reduce health inequities; and

 

WHEREAS, KC Parks & Recreation leaders were moved by the data and discussions presented at Life X 2.0 and took immediate action to offer free Community Center passes to any resident living in Life X zip codes; and

 

WHEREAS, KC Parks and the Health Department agreed that interventions must go beyond just improving the physical health of individuals. Building strong neighborhoods is key – specifically, fostering social cohesion by building social capital, improving socioeconomic well-being of residents, and building leaders within communities; and so a partnership was formed; and

WHEREAS, KC Parks submitted an application to the Health Care Foundation’s Healthy Communities Fund and were awarded $115,000.00 to support Life X. The Parks Board of Commissioners will approve and adopt the $115,000.00 grant award on August 14, 2018. NOW, THEREFORE,
