A heritage trail worthy of Kansas City, Kansas

kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

The Heritage Trail project began with a 2008 master plan for Kansas City, Kansas, that envisioned a green city with neighborhoods whose residents are healthy and fit, infrastructure that ensures clean air and water, and a community that embraces its diverse culture and history.

For years, residents in a Kansas City, Kansas neighborhood have heard they're getting more green space, walking trails and projects to preserve their rich history. KCUR's community engagement reporter Laura Zeigler reports that community groups and the Unified Government are planning a trail and green infrastructure connecting Kaw Point to the Quindaro Townsite.
