University District Medical Care, 5151 Troost Ave., Suite 200, is a wonderful addition to Southtown. The medical care facility recently opened on the ground floor of the newly built Rockhurst University parking garage. The professional staff is prepared and pleased to offer residents of the Southtown community fast, quality walk-in medical care for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries.
I chose Southtown to do my college internship because of an inspiring lecture given by Executive Director Marti Lee, in my Urban Politics course at UMKC. As she spoke about her involvement in parts of the city where I live, work and play, all I could think about was “how do I get involved?” At the end of the class I asked if Southtown offered internships and now here I am. I am a senior Urban Planning and Design student at the University of Missouri Kansas City and have previously interned with the City of Independence’s Community Development Department.
The Kansas City Economic Development (KCMO CDE) has a Facade Improvement Loan Program (FILP) which was developed to stimulate investment in Kansas City’s highly distressed low-income communities.
