RESOLUTION NO. 100019

 

Stating City Council support for the 2040 Adaptive Scenario developed by the Mid-America Regional Council.

 

WHEREAS, the Mid-America Regional Council has developed a 2040 Adaptive Scenario for projecting population growth; and

 

WHEREAS, the 2040 Adaptive Scenario was presented before a joint meeting of the Transportation and Infrastructure and Planning and Zoning Committees on November 5, 2009; and

 

WHEREAS, the 2040 Adaptive Scenario assumes that local and regional policies promote development and redevelopment of commercial areas into mixed-use centers along corridors with sufficient densities and amenities to make them more walkable, bikeable, and easily served by transit, thus resulting in less decline and greater preservation of open space; and

 

WHEREAS, under the 2040 Adaptive Scenario, the urban core's loss of people and jobs is essentially eliminated and virtually all existing areas grow, including the region's center cities, first suburbs and older town centers; and

 

WHEREAS, the 2040 Adaptive Scenario accommodates robust economic growth in a more fiscally and environmentally sustainable manner, while improving access to economic opportunity for all residents; and

 

WHEREAS, a vote of support for the 2040 Adaptive Scenario will be sought at the February 12, 2010, meeting of the First Suburbs Coalition; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the vote for the City of Kansas City, Missouri, at the First Suburbs Coalition meeting be recorded as supportive of the 2040 Adaptive Scenario.
