(Re)Designing an Urban Neighborhood, Creating curb appeal in the Crossroads | KC Design Week

April 22 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am EDT


Join us in the heart of the Crossroads Arts District to ignite your inspiration and see firsthand how one neighborhood is redesigning what urban curb appeal means. Community leaders Robert Harris and David Johnson will delve into the incredible initiatives transforming the Crossroads, from re-thinking the relationships between automobiles and pedestrians to improving the microclimate by introducing green into a concrete jungle.

Get ready for an engaging discussion on grassroots efforts—the challenges, the successes, the lessons learned, and the strategies that truly make a difference. Learn the secrets to establishing a reliable funding source and tapping into local and national grants to fuel community improvements. Then take a walking tour of 20th Street, a captivating case study on urban transformation, to see how the profound impact that the improvements have had on the Crossroads community.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to be a catalyst for positive change and become part of the movement that’s turning neighborhoods into vibrant, welcoming spaces!

The event will take place on April 22 at the Center for Architecture & Design from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.. Tickets required and cost $12 plus fees in advance and $15 at the door.
