Who We Are:
The Urban Core Group is a Kansas City based grassroots effort dedicated to learning more about how urban pioneers are preserving and enriching our Kansas City experience. Each month, we gather to discover and learn how new projects and redevelopment efforts are revitalizing our urban core.
Our purpose is three-fold:
• Our Passion: To support entrepreneurs, corporations, individuals, civic leaders and non-profit organizations committed to and actively working towards preserving and enriching the Kansas City experience.
• Our Neighbors: To educate the group’s membership on new and ongoing development efforts designed to re-energize Kansas City’s urban core and revitalize the treasured historical structures of Kansas City.
• Our Community: To promote progressive development of our business community and encourage participation in and support of neighborhood and community improvement activities.
Kansas City’s citizens, business community and political leadership have acknowledged the Urban Core Group’s importance through its continuous efforts over the many years they have been officially formed. They feel it’s fitting to celebrate the organization’s dedication.
