Have you heard of the Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC)? It’s a government committee dedicated to, you guessed it, improving KCMO.

If you see something around the city that needs a little extra love, you can fill out this form by Friday, Sept. 15, 2023, to advocate for adding it to next year’s budget. You will be notified if PIAC chooses your project by April 2024. Project funds will be allocated in May 2024.

The committee is currently receiving improvement requests related to:

  • Stormwater drainage issues
  • Bridges
  • Public properties
  • Streets + roadways
  • Municipal buildings
  • Community centers
  • Street + traffic lights
  • Sidewalks, curbs, and gutters
  • Public park facilities (more dog parks, anyone?)
  • Monuments
  • Fountains
  • Ball fields
  • Swimming pools

Visit PIAC’s website to learn more about the committee and see projects currently under consideration.
