MU Extension in collaboration with Drury's Center for Community Studies is hosting a series of open community meetings and workshops to develop a 'Vision Toolkit' for the historic nodes in the city center of Independence. The process is intended to be intensely participant driven, BUT we need people to attend to be heard. Ten (10) architecture students are working with a diverse Vision Advisory Committee and need YOUR participation to build the integrity of a 20-30 year vision for the city center of Independence.
This visioning effort is intended to develop a broader discussion of how the study area in Independence can better realize its important potential for placemaking, heritage tourism, transit, housing, 'city repair', and related economic development.
Since Spring 2007, the academic collaboration between MU Extension and the Drury Center for Community Studies has assisted 28 communities with 30 visioning projects resulting in 5 DREAM Initiative communities and economic activity in the projected range of 20-30 million dollars. For each community this represents a first step along a path toward revitalization, entrepreneurship, economic development and overall sustainability.
Final public presentation of Development Concepts and dialogue concerning the issues & considerations related to the long range vision for Independence, focusing on the linkage and revitalization of the center city area between the historic assets.
Open to the entire community.
