  • In Progress: Downtown Raytown Streetscape Design

    December 9, 2011

    Confluence was recently selected by the City to prepare a Streetscape Master Plan to guide future infrastructure improvements in Raytown’s Central Business District. The project will also integrate a phased approach for implementation.

    • To officially kick-off the design process, Confluence led the project’s Steering Committee members on a bus tour to review several of our staff’s recent Kansas City-area streetscape projects. The weather cooperated with us, and allowed participants to “kick the tires” at several stops along the way, including:

         –  Downtown Lee’s Summit

         –  Downtown Overland Park

         –  Kansas City’s Main Street Corridor

         –  Kansas City’s Second Street Corridor

      Attendees also participated in a brief project walk-through of a portion of Raytown’s Downtown area – pointing out challenges and identifying some initial design opportunities. The day concluded with a design workshop complete with facilitated discussion and interactive activities. Design and planning work is now underway, with the Master Plan and Phase One implementation recommendations currently slated for completion in late-Spring to early-Summer 2012.
