Reactions to Metcalf Development Plan
By Laura Ziegler and Jennifer Galt
OVERLAND PARK, KS – After almost a year and a half of research and input from thousands of residents, the city of Overland Park and a team of consultants will reveal a new "vision" for Metcalf Avenue on February 21.
The plan gives this important Johnson County artery a massive face lift, including bus rapid transit and pockets of revitalized mixed-use development along key stops between Johnson Drive and 123rd Street.
KCUR's Laura Ziegler and Jennifer Galt took a trip starting at Mission Bank on Johnson Drive and talked to some of the people along the Metcalf corridor whose lives may be affected by the plan.
