Neighborhood Listening Sessions Seek Public Input to Help Guide Future of Kansas City International Airport Terminal Facilities

The City’s Aviation Department is asking residents to weigh in directly on the next step in the planning process for any potential upgrades at Kansas City International Airport.

Feedback from residents will be gathered through a series of listening sessions hosted by business, neighborhood and community groups.

“We would like to hear from residents about their experiences using the airport and what they want in the future,” said Pat Klein, KCMO Aviation Director. “The priorities of our residents and airport users are vitally important to any decision about the future of KCI.”

The listening sessions will be an open forum for residents to discuss their thoughts and concerns about the airport with Aviation Department leadership, and will include a short presentation to bring everyone up-to-date on previous planning efforts. Information gathered through community listening sessions will directly influence the terminal facility planning process and will be shared with City Council members. 

Neighborhood associations will soon receive a letter with information about scheduling a listening session or they can go online now to schedule a meeting.

Business and community groups in Kansas City are also encouraged to add a listening session to a regularly scheduled meeting by contacting John Holland at or (816) 243-3115. Sessions start in mid-April and continue through the summer.
