The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and Kansas City Public Television (KCPT) recognize the need to raise awareness around, and present solutions to the economic, social and environmental challenges facing the rapidly growing Kansas City region.
Imagine KC, a 12-part series, co-produced by KCPT and MARC, intends to provide reliable information around issues and ideas to encourage informed decision making and help our communities plan for a vibrant, connected and green future. Using video footage from throughout the region, graphics, animated scenarios, expert interviews and viewer feedback, the series will focus on helping the region envision its future.
Objectives of Imagine KC
Each episode will:
- Educate the public about a specific set of issues, policy options and how other metro areas are meeting these challenges;
- Envision how to implement change in our region;
- Engage the community in ongoing implementation projects and decision making.
Imagine KC will work to increase public knowledge of key strategies for more effective patterns of metropolitan growth.
