We are VERY excited about this year’s charrette! Eco Abet has been working with representatives of the Lykins Neighborhood Association to focus on Lykins Square Park and the surrounding adjacent lots of the neighborhood. The Lykins Neighborhood is in the Northeast of Kansas City, which is one of the city’s most diverse regions. We have formed relationships with KC for Refugees and Della Lamb to engage with the area and gain understanding of what types of amenities are needed. We are looking at improving the current park as well the potential to implement a community center, new housing, and mixed-use buildings.
We are currently planning for a summer charrette on Thursday, June 20th. We look forward to seeing you then!
If you are interested in participating in the discussion, either as an area expert or someone who is passionate about this subject, please let us know!
