The City of Mission's goal is to offer top rate service delivery to all who work and live here. That requires good planning as the population changes over time. Demographic changes anticipated in the next 20-30 years will have significant impacts to communities across the country as the Baby Boomer Generation ages and as the Millennial Generation comes of age behind them.
Communities for All Ages Initiative
The City is one of several cities in the Kansas City Metropolitan area to participate with the KC Communities for All Ages (CFAA) Initiative. The work is developing tools to help cities respond and plan for the changing trends. Mission's Sustainability Commission
is currently using the CCFA Checklist (linked below) to assess how Mission currently performs the goals it includes. If you have thoughts or feedback about any of this content, please contact a Sustainability Commission member or Emily Randel
, staff liaison.
