Fellow Armour Hills residents, here’s a brief recap of some of the issues discussed at the Armour Hills Homes Assn board meeting earlier this week:
*KCATA has planned a beautification project for the park and ride lot on the south side of Gregory just east of Wornall. An additional “WALDO” monument sign will be erected at the site. KCATA would like to improve the appearance of the seldom used park and ride lot on the north end of Gregory–estimated cost is $50,000-$60,000. No plans or funds in place right now for this area.
*Gunnar Hand, board member, will be applying for PIAC (Public Community Advisory Committee) grants on behalf of Armour Hills. If awarded, we would like to use the grant money for Arbor Villa park improvements and tree maintenance. Applications are due in August, and the grants are awarded in February.
*The board approved funds for another black iron bench to be installed in Arbor Villa Park. This bench will be the memorial to long time park supporter Pete Egan, who died earlier this year. There will be a memorial plaque on the bench. We hope to have it installed by September for the ice cream social.
*Plans are underway for the annual Freedom Parade July 4. Festivities start at 9am; the parade begins at 10am near Gregory and 70th Terrace. Prizes will be awarded in several categories–see the recent edition of the Clarion for more info.
The next board meeting is July 19, 7pm –all residents are welcome!
