You're Invited: Mayor Holland's Listening Tour, Business Edition, With FIA

mayor holland listening tourDowntown KCK business owners and employees, we've got an exciting opportunity for you. You've likely heard of Mayor Mark Holland's Listening Tour, during which Mayor Holland visited each of the districts in KCK to gather community feedback on how to spend or invest the $12 million that will be the result of a sales tax windfall once the STAR bonds used to finance Village West are paid off in 2017. Now, that listening tour is coming to the business community, and we want you to be there to share your input. Join the Fairfax Industrial Association for the organization's March luncheon: Mayor Holland's Listening Tour--Business Edition, which begins at 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, March 10, at General Motors (3201 Fairfax Trafficway, Kansas City, Kan.) Admission is $15 for members and non-members and includes lunch. Please RSVP to Melissa by 5 p.m., March 4, at execdir[at]fiakck[dot]org. Advance reservations and payments are required; walk-ins will not be admitted. Please park in the visitor or south lots and wear closed-toe or low-heeled shoes.

During the luncheon, you'll have a chance to offer feedback on how the $12 million should be spent or invested. Here's an advance look at the discussion survey, as well as some Unified Government budget background. This is an excellent opportunity to not only make your voice heard, but also join Downtown Shareholders as we work to continually improve downtown Kansas City, Kan., and help ensure the business community has the resources it needs to succeed.

See you on March 10!
