Last Minute Notice: Change of Venue and Topic

Brigade --

Tonight we have a special reason for changing the normally scheduled meeting. Kansas City is holding an open public hearing regarding the fate of Kemper Arena. The Brigade believes that the arena should be repurposed to become a digital gaming and events arena.

For more information about the plan Brigade supports for reusing the arena (instead of tearing it down):

In light of tonight's scheduled topic -- how to increase civic engagement in KC -- the decision has been made to postpone our regular meeting and ask that you please attend this public hearing instead, as it is a clear example of real world civic engagement at its best.

Meeting details below. Thank you for being flexible and we hope to see you there.

REUSE VS DEMOLITION OF KEMPER ARENA PUBLIC HEARING MONDAY, AUGUST 25,[masked]pm KCMO Planning Zoning and Economic Development Committee Kemper Arena/West Bottoms Work Session #4 Monday, August 25th American Royal Complex/Kemper Arena 5:00 pm American Royal Complex Tour 5:45 pm Break for quick dinner 6:00 pm Public Testimony Session in Replays Lounge, Kemper Arena There are 2 competing plans for Kemper Arena; The American Royal wants to tear down the arena and build a new smaller arena. They want to expand on agricultural shows, horse shows along with agrarian exhibitions, demonstrations etc. The competing plan is to preserve Kemper Arena, modify it to accommodate indoor sports for youth and adults - soccer, volleyball, rugby etc.. This plan is proposed by Foutch Brothers. This is an opportunity for you to voice your opinions, After all Kemper Arena was built with tax-payer dollars, was rehabbed about 10 years ago with tax-payer dollars.

    This is one of my favorite topics because it is so easy to network in KC. As we know, there is only one degree of separation between you and the person who is going to be able to assist or mentor you. This is highlighted in the WeCreateKC report just out from KCSourcelink -

    Looking forward to tonight's meeting.

    Is there any way these could start a little later? I get out of work at 5:30 and have to drive from Overland Park.
