    • Midwest Genealogy Center Community Hall in Independence

The forums will be another chance for the community to hear about plans for the downtown ballpark district from Royals’ leaders and other groups involved with the project.

Members of the Royals, including Chairman and CEO John Sherman will attend the forums. Representatives from architectural firm, Populous, will also be in attendance.

Members of the community will be allowed to ask questions during both meetings.
