by | Sep 3, 2019 | News, North Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Missouri, September 3, 2019 – The groundbreaking for the Platte Purchase Drive, Line Creek Parkway, and North Tiffany Springs Road improvements was held this morning in Kansas City. The speakers included Councilman Dan Fowler, Alicia Stephens, Executive Director of the Platte County EDC, Erika Feingold of MD Management, and Wes Minder of the City of Kansas City, Missouri.

“With today’s transportation infrastructure groundbreaking, the City of Kansas City, Missouri will see opportunities for growth in population, property tax base, and sales tax,” said Alicia Stephens of this morning’s groundbreaking. “Our Northland TIF’s do exactly what is intended—fund our infrastructure. Sewer has been extended, and now transportation is. This is possible thanks to many contributing people and organizations.”

McClure, MD Management, Superior Bowen, and the City of Kansas City are working together to complete this infrastructure project that will open up the adjacent ground for development opportunities within the Twin Creeks Village area.

“This project has been a long time coming, and it’s good to finally see it kick-off,” said Councilman Dan Fowler. “I’m very excited about the opportunities it will bring not only to the Northland but to the entire city.”

The project, led by MD Management, consists of an extension of Line Creek Parkway and Tiffany Springs Road, North Platte Purchase Drive improvements, and sanitary sewer extensions throughout the area. These improvements will facilitate the development of a new sports complex, future development of Platte County R-3 School District facilities, as well as new commercial and residential development areas. This is the first step towards the full realization of the Twin Creeks Plan, the largest planned growth area in Kansas City.

“Today, we are taking steps to bring positive enhancements to this community,” said Erika Feingold. “We are fortunate to be able to form a productive public/private partnership with the City to produce an area that will be home to educational, recreational, and commercial endeavors.”
