The 2017 Kansas City Marathon will take place Saturday, October 21, between 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM. This great event may create delays for many of our Southtown area, Brookside and Troost businesses and neighborhoods, so we encourage you to plan ahead and be patient. We also encourage businesses to make employees and customers aware to avoid unnecessary frustration.

New Executive Director Sean Ackerson joined the Southtown Council on December 14th. Sean and his wife Amy are 19-year residents of KC and are proud parents of two very active elementary school students - Garrett and Brendan. Although a native of Oklahoma, Sean considers Kansas City home. “We love our family and friends elsewhere, but Kansas City is our home. We’ve been in the neighborhood for over 17 years now and Southtown, Waldo and Brookside is my community.”
