RESOLUTION NO. 180394

 

Expressing the Mayor and Council’s support for the City’s application to host the 2022 sponsored National League of Cities (“NLC”) City Summit; and committing staff time, participation on appropriate committees and fundraising efforts to fulfill a successful conference that shares the values of the NLC.

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City, Missouri greatly values its membership and volunteer roles within the NLC; and

 

WHEREAS, some of our City’s recent milestones include the citywide approval of a new, single terminal airport, development of a bus rapid transit system and streetcar line (which recently surpassed 4 million rides over the last two years), the groundbreaking on a convention hotel, the creation of an Office of Cultural and Creative Services, and the creation of a Chief Innovation Office that is currently working to implement the largest Smart Cities program in North America; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City is experiencing a phenomenal resurgence of activity and recognition and, therefore, would be an exciting host city; and

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council recognize that innovation occurs at the local level, but that without a myriad level of support, cities cannot thrive in an ever-changing world of technology, transportation models, environmental sustainability methods and evolving governing paradigms; and

 

WHEREAS, by hosting the National League of Cities’ 2022 City Summit (“Summit”), attendees from all over the country will receive the opportunity to gather with other cities in our fine City to learn from and share with peers and experts; and

 

WHEREAS, the Summit offers invaluable opportunities through networking events, mobile workshops, entertainment, exhibits and sessions on leadership and governance; and

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council recognize that there will be planning requirements and fundraising assistance to the efforts and commit to creating a metropolitan wide network that will include VisitKC and other planners to accomplish the goals required; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby support the application to host the 2022 sponsored National League of Cities City Summit and commit staff time, participation on appropriate committees and fundraising efforts to fulfill a successful conference that shares the values of the NLC.
