KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Workers are tackling unsightly elements of Kansas City and surrounding communities in preparation for the thousands of visitors coming into town for the MLB All-Star Game on July 10.
Thursday morning, Kansas City city councilman Scott Taylor was joined by the mayors of Raytown and Liberty to announce the regional cooperation to beautify the metro.
Taylor spearheaded the idea after city workers collected 7,000 illegal signs during a two-day sweep of Kansas City.
Potholes, illegal dumping, damaged sidewalks and anything else unsightly will be part of the clean-up. Several communities are participating in the beautification effort including:
- Kansas City
- Lee's Summit
- Jackson County
- Prairie Village
