A VERY long April Planning Meeting

Folks - make sure you take coffee, snacks, and have a place lined up to order delivery-dinner from for Thursday, April 14th, because there are Sixty-Zero (60) items on the April agenda. Land development dollars are flowing and the number of applications represents that. This is a tough meeting for staff, commissioners, and interested parties as well because the 14th is Maundy Thursday, 15th is the start of Passover, Easter is the 17th, and taxes are due the 18th, so there's a lot of competition for everybody's time.

With that out of the way, here's how to Engage and the items that KCPA is watching this month:


Agenda Review Meeting - Tues, Apr 12th, 11:30AM, Small Assembly Room. Not broadcast.
