What is Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)?
Transit Oriented Development is a form of urban redevelopment that increases access for people who walk, bike, or take transit to and from a particular place in the city. TOD is necessary because of the past 100 years of automobile-dependent development, which is unsustainable.
The City adopted a TOD policy in 2017 (resolution 160361). The purpose is to provide a policy framework to promote new construction and development in the city’s transportation corridors – such as Troost and Prospect.

Why should we pay closer attention to tourism and visitor-related decisions in KCMO? Good question. The city is building a new infrastructure for tourism as a form of economic development and infrastructure investment. Your tax dollars are supporting the production of this new infrastructure – including the streetcar, the new airport, and a wide variety of related projects. With the NFL draft and 2026 World Cup coming to Kansas City = how we spend dollars for tourism matters for your neighborhood and equitable development citywide. Neighborhoods can prepare for these changes by being more involved with Neighborhood Tourism Development (NTDF) and other programs.
Linwood Shopping Center Community Improvement District
Meeting of the Board of Directors
Meeting ID: 875 7298 8391
What is a CID? According to the state of Missouri – a Community Improvement District (CID) is a local special taxing district that collects revenue within its designated boundaries to pay for special public facilities, improvements or services. CIDs are created by ordinance of the local governing body of a municipality upon presentation of a petition signed by owners of real property within the proposed district’s boundaries, typically encompassing a commercial, not a residential area. A CID, although approved by the local municipality, is a separate political subdivision with the power to govern itself and impose and collect special assessments, additional property and sales taxes. CIDs may also generate funds by fees, rents or charges for district property or services and through grants, gifts or donations. CID annual reports are filed with the Clerk of the creating municipality and a copy filed with the Department of Economic Development which does not have oversight or audit responsibility for these districts.
