4th of July Parade & Picnic Details!

We’ll start gathering for the parade at 10:30AM at the North end of Coleman Road.  Come decked out in your best red, white & blues and march, ride, run, trot, or crawl through the neighborhood celebrating the 241st birthday of our nation!

The neighborhood is supplying grilled goodies, water & lemonade, so please bring a side or a dessert.  There will be inflatables for the kids and we should have a visit from the ever-ready, ever-friendly KC firefighters.

Join the parade or grab a comfy spot as a spectator on the parade route and join the festivities on 33rd Terrace when the parade ends.

2016 Annual Neighborhood Picnic MOVED to 9/24

Hey neighbors!  It’s that time of year when we gather in the cooler weather, catch up with each other, welcome new neighbors and ENJOY everything we love about our neighborhood.

Repeating last year’s great picnic, we will be gathering on 32nd Street to enjoy food, drink, music and much merriment!  There will also be inflatables for the kids (one for kiddos less than 6 and an obstacle course for the older kiddos).

The main course is being fabulously, and generously, prepared by our very own neighbor and restaurateur, Ted Habiger of Room 39 and Brewery Emperial fame.  Drinks will be provided, but please bring a side.

Annual Picnic Timeline

3PM – show up early to help set up chairs and tables (also, inflatables will be up and running!)

5PM – Dino O’Dell will play for the kids (and young at heart!)

6PM – Dinner is served (bring a side!)

7PM – The Promise Makers – once again bringing you the very best of your smooth rock favorites

Bring your appetite, your dancing shoes and a firm “howdy do” to have fun, kick back and get to know your neighbors better!

Your Vote Counts City Council Elections

The Mayor and City Council make up a 13-member non-partisan legislative body that governs our City. There are 6 Council Districts, each having 2 Council representatives — one being elected in-district and the other at-large. In-District means they live in the district and are elected by the voters of that district. At-large refers to candidates that live in the district and but are elected by a city-wide vote. In a nutshell, we elect the Mayor, a 4th District Councilmember and all 6 At-Large Councilmembers (8 of the 13 members).

Coleman Highlands is located in the 4th City Council District of Kansas City Missouri. Our current Council members are Jim Glover and Jan Marcason. Councilwoman Marcason is term-limited and will be unable to run again this election. Jolie Justus and John Fierro are running to fill her spot. Councilman Glover is running for re-election to the 4th District At-Large position and his opponents are Jared Campbell, Bryan Stalder, and Katheryn Shields.

In order to learn more information about the candidates running for office, there are many upcoming forums. A few are detailed off to the right, but there will be more. They are generally advertised and many times Scott Burnett will send info through the Google group e-mail. The Primary election will be April 7th and the General Election on June 23rd. The new Mayor and Council will take office August 1st. Not registered to vote? Go to www.kcab.org for info on locations and/or a mail-in registration form.
