Bob Langenkamp, City Manager's Office, and Jacob Dobsch and Shannon Jax, City Planning, gave this presentation to the committee. The City is seeking proposals from qualified firms/individuals to prepare an Economic Development Strategic Plan for Kansas City. The City's intent is for the Plan to approach economic development from a broader context, including workforce development and education as well as quality of life issues that impact the economy such as housing, transportation, education, infrastructure investments, public service capacity, and natural resources. The City anticipates a multi-phased project, which will be implemented in two phases. Phase I: Economic Development Profile (where are we?). Phase II: Economic Development Strategic Plan (Where do we want to be? & How will we get there?) There will be an update on the progress of the transition to the new development code. Tom Coyle and Patty Noll, City Planning, gave this presentation to the committee. Ms. Noll stated that though there are still some kinks to be worked out with the new code, for the most part it is transitioning very well. Mr. Coyle stated that they will continue to update the council on the transition progress and address any items that need further consideration.
