Promoting Process Innovation and Efficiency Workgroup

This action group works to delineate processes as they are and secure buy in to simplify them as needed. Accomplishments include advocating for and drafting an Urban Renewal Area tax abatement application to be for single family residences only in order to increase its use and delineating step by step how to acquire a vacant lot through the Land Bank of Kansas City. This group is also overseeing the expansion of the UNI website to host information developed by V2V groups in the areas of acquisition, financing, rehabbing of vacant properties; maintaining homes and greening of lots.

Integrating Green Spaces & Urban Farms Workgroup

There are many more vacant lots across the city than vacant structures. This group has just published its second addition of A Guide to Working with Lotswhich helps residents to assess lots and provides eight templates that provide detailed planning and installation instructions to create healthy and attractive green spaces. In partnership with Cultivate KC it is working on a second document that will provide all the information necessary to help individuals determine whether starting a farm as a part time commercial enterprise is for them.

UNI

Clearing Titles Workgroup

In May 2017 this group published Stimulating Redevelopment by Clearing Tax Sale Titles which delineated the problem, cost and potential strategies for addressing clouded titles. “Working towards insurable tax titles is the most impactful avenue for reinvestment in vacant and distressed properties in the urban core.” This document is serving as a guide to action as the group seeks resolution to this seemingly intractable problem.
