We're pleased to offer Downtown Kansas City, Kansas businesses and its membership the following toolkits.  Each of the toolkits reflects extensive staff and stakeholder review, as well as technical knowledge about the public review processes that local businesses and property owners have to navigate as part of the Downtown development process. Each toolkit contains detailed information drawn from Unified Government zoning ordinances and related materials, along with charts, renderings, maps, and photographs that help to clarify and explain Unified Government zoning, code enforcement, and other development and signage regulations to property owners and businesses.  If you have questions, please contact Daniel Serda, Ph.D., Downtown Shareholders Economic Development Coordinator, at (913) 608-9930.
