Kansas' 'Green Impact Zone'

Director of the White House Office of Urban Affairs Adolfo Carrion, Jr. visited Kansas City on Tuesday to visit the site of the city's new "Green Impact Zone". The inner-city Zone will be a laboratory for energy-saving techniques.

"Carrion said he and a team of federal officials were visiting Kansas City to herald its impressive coordination of federal and local dollars to create jobs, promote progressive development and revitalize the central city.

The Green Impact Zone - a 150-block area between Troost and Prospect avenues and between 39th and 51st streets - is targeted for home weatherization on a massive scale, bus rapid transit and more sustainable energy approaches."

FYI downtown KC is in MO

The Green Impact Zone — a 150-block area between Troost and Prospect avenues and between 39th and 51st streets — is actually in Missouri, not Kansas. Common mistake. Thanks for the news on my hometown.
