Thanks to our great partners and communities who helped make the 2017 Community Development Day a success!

The event provided a full day of networking at The National Golf Club in Parkville through and featured a Community and Sponsor Expo, lunch, golf scramble and 19th hole.

The day kicked off with a Community and Sponsor Expo as Platte County communities Kansas City, Parkville, Platte City, Riverside and Weston got the opportunity to showcase what is happening in their communities.
