NEWS & RESOURCES
Midtown KC Now is pleased to announce that a new Executive Director has been hired to lead the organization into its next chapter. Kevin Klinkenberg, a longtime Kansas City planning consultant and architect, will begin with MKCN on December 19. Kevin has been a champion and national authority on urban design and planning for redevelopment of core urban areas. He has served on many local and national organizations and has authored a book, Why I Walk, released in 2014 and continues to author a blog at kevinklinkenberg.com. Before returning to Kansas City earlier this year, Kevin served as Executive Director of the Savannah Development & Renewal Authority in Georgia from 2014-2018. 
 
We are excited to have someone with Kevin’s talents, experience, and expertise to work with the MKCN Board, our friends and supporters to pursue our goals and drive our mission. We’re confident Kevin will prove to be an asset to not only Midtown Kansas City, but to the City at large as the potential of the area is revealed.
 
Your continued support is also very important to our mission. We will have several opportunities for you to meet Kevin, including our January luncheon on January 16 or Annual Awards Reception, The Main Event, on January 22. 
 
Thank you,
 
Jim Edson
