Grandview Named 2016 Crown Community

Post Date:12/20/2016 4:52 PM

A banner year for development in Grandview will come to a close with an outstanding honor. American City & County Magazine named Grandview a “2016 Crown Community” for its work and investment into revitalizing Main Street. This title comes on the heels of Mid-America Regional Council recognizing Main Street as a 2016 Sustainable Success Story.

“This is a great achievement for Grandview,” beamed City Administrator Cory Smith. The Main Street Improvement Project is often seen as the catalyst for recent growth in Grandview, including a redeveloped shopping center now known as Truman’s Marketplace; and construction of Gateway Village-- a $300 million stay-and-play development of soccer fields, hotels, restaurants, retail and residential.

Grandview’s $6.1 million, four-phase Main Street Improvement Project is an example of a complete street design, incorporating a road diet to minimize the width of the street, widened sidewalks, and pocket parks along the .6 mile stretch into the heart of Downtown Grandview.

American City & County presents its Crown Communities awards each year to local governments executing innovative and impactful projects.
