Expressing the support of the City Council for the Green Light = GO project designed to link the West Side and Crossroads areas with the 18th and Vine area by providing a permanent laser light display along 18th Street.

 

WHEREAS, a citizens group, East meets West of Troost, has been formed to improve economic development opportunities and culture-based commerce in the 18th Street area, particularly for small businesses, artists and cultural groups; and

 

WHEREAS, the groups efforts to bridge the gap between the West Side and Crossroads areas and the 18th and Vine area will also promote racial harmony through cultural interchange; and

 

WHEREAS, East meets West of Troost intends to seek the majority of its funding from private sources such as businesses, corporations, community foundations and individuals but needs the support and the cooperation of the City to enhance its efforts; and

 

WHEREAS, the groups first project is to sponsor a permanent laser light display called Green Light = GO along 18th Street to visually link the West Side and Crossroads areas with the 18th and Vine area; and

 

WHEREAS, Mr. Rockne Krebs, a Kansas City native and internationally known light artist who works with lasers and other luminous devices to create urban-scale visual art pieces has graciously volunteered his services, in collaboration with his brother, Paul Krebs, to create this laser light display; NOW, THEREFORE

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Council of Kansas City endorses the efforts of East meets West of Troost to create and install the Green Light = GO laser light display along 18th Street and directs the City Manager to facilitate the cooperation of all City departments with the sponsors of this project to expedite its installation and operation once adequate funding has been secured.
