The Green Impact Zone is a 150-square block area of Kansas City, Mo. — from 39th to 51st Streets, and from Troost to Prospect and Swope Parkway — that has experienced severe abandonment and economic decline.
By concentrating resources — funding, coordination, and public and private partnerships — in one specific area, the Green Impact Zone initiative will demonstrate that a targeted effort can literally transform a community — environmentally, economically and socially.
To do this, the zone has assembled a core team of leaders within the neighborhood and community development organizations in the zone, as well as the programmatic, nonprofit, private, and civic leadership necessary to support a comprehensive strategy that will transform the entire zone.
This effort is coordinated by the Mid-America Regional Council.
