Benefits of KC Green to the Neighborhood
Neighborhood recognition – Our neighborhood and its sustainable practices will be featured on Channel 2, highlighted in the biannual publication KCMOre, and posted on the KC Green web page: http://kcmo.gov/kcgreen/. In addition, our neighborhood will be provided KC Green street sign toppers. The street sign toppers are placed on top of existing streets signs to indicate that Greenway Fields is a KC Green Neighborhood. We will receive 8-10 signs which will designate us as a KC Green Gold Neighborhood.
Clinics and workshops – Residents of KC Green Neighborhoods will be provided free access to clinics and workshops to help continue and or/maintain their progress toward a sustainable neighborhood. Topics may include: rain barrel design and construction; home energy efficiency; tree selection, planting and maintenance; and rain gardens.
KC Green Neighborhood eco-gift – Our neighborhood will receive an eco-gift that will benefit our residents. We have asked for an eco-gift of 5-10 trees.
KC Green Neighborhood designations are retained for three years, after which, the neighborhood will be required to reapply.
Thank you to those residents who took the time to complete the KC Green Neighborhood survey! Your answers helped give the selection team a great understanding of our green habits as a whole. Well done neighbors!
