WHEREAS, it is incumbent upon the City to develop plans for the reuse of the Bannister Road complex and the eventual possible reuse of the Botts Road facility so that potential developers can be contacted quickly and have adequate information to determine if a reuse of these sites is attractive to their interests; NOW, THEREFORE,

A. Retraining of the work force employed at the Botts Road facility and the Bannister Road Complex so as to provide these workers with the skills required at the converted facilities and retain these good paying jobs in Kansas City;

 

B. Consideration of the production of new environmentally sound energy or other environmental technologies, which will benefit the residents of Kansas City and surrounding areas, as an option for each reuse;

 

C. Cost estimates for the reuse of each facility;

 

D. Annual review by City staff with updates as needed; and

 

E. A time period for public inspection of the plan, allowing for public review and comment.
