The City of Kansas City, Missouri, is working to update its Country Club/Waldo Area Plan, which includes our neighborhood.
Area plans recommend strategies to help realize a community’s long term vision for the future and provide a comprehensive framework to guide public decisions on land use, housing, public improvements, community development, and city services.
Here are the boundaries for the plan:
The city would like residents to get involved in the process by providing input and signing up to receive information about public meetings. Learn more
A consultant is performing a random survey of residents who live within the boundaries of the Country Club/Waldo Area Plan. The consultant will mail the survey and follow up by telephone with those residents. If you receive a survey, please fill it out so the city can get your feedback on housing, transportation, goods and services and area identity.
Heading out of town for the weekend — or longer? Ward Parkway Homes Association members who have paid for the optional private security patrol service during the current fiscal year can rest easy. You have access to a valuable vacation security service benefit. Our patrol service will check on your home while you’re gone and notify you if they observe any suspicious activity.
The Ward Parkway Homes Association’s security patrol service costs $60 per year per house. It pays for off-duty Kansas City police officers to patrol streets during the week, which helps our entire neighborhood maintain some of the lowest crime rates in the city. Plus, it provides peace of mind that someone is looking out for your property in your absence.
To request a vacation security service for an upcoming trip, fill out the online form and submit it. Remember to request the vacation patrol service at least 72 hours before leaving town so we have time to check the neighborhood roster and notify the security team.
Theft is a crime of opportunity. During the summer months, would-be thieves are on the lookout for items that can be easily taken in moments. Unlocked doors, open windows and open garage doors all provide a temptation to steal valuables — bikes, tools, packages, cell phones, purses — left in plain view. Blooming trees and overgrown shrubs can provide would-be burglars with places to hide.
