New Parking Lot to Open Downtown

From the Unified Government:

More parking will be available soon in Downtown KCK. Crews are finishing up the landscape and final touches on the new lot located that will add 197 spaces behind the historic Memorial Hall building.

Additional parking has been a concern for a while now as more people come Downtown to conduct business in and around City Hall and also for events during the evening at Memorial Hall.
The Unified Government began excavating the land in May of this year, which was once occupied by several homes. After the properties were purchased in January, the UG was able to begin demolition and then construct on the new lot.

The new lot will be used as a paid lot for Unified Government staff and the public once complete. The cost for construction of the lot is estimated to at $1,428,808.00.
