Exciting Development in City

clock February 22, 2012 19:29 by author Jeff Quibell

75ES3358 4x5 @ 72 ResMayor Carson Ross likes to say Blue Springs is a city “on the move,” and it’s obvious throughout our city that his statement is accurate.

With the exceptionally mild winter we’re experiencing, commercial development at Adams Dairy Landing is progressing at a brisk pace. Ulta Beauty is now open and the buildings for TJ-Maxx/Home Goods, Ross Dress for Less and additional lifestyle shops are close to completion.

The city recently began requesting bids on the long anticipated improvements for Woods Chapel Road, continuing to fulfill the promise of redeveloping this important north-south corridor. At the most recent City Council work session, the council agreed to request assistance from the Blue Springs Economic Development Corporation regarding recommendations for a strategic plan to redevelop our Missouri 7 and U.S. 40 corridors. We also agreed to complete the formal review of our city’s comprehensive plan, a review that is significantly overdue and will ensure the city is better prepared for future development efforts.

Not all politics were local last week. I had the great pleasure of going to Jefferson City to talk with our state legislators regarding a variety of issues of interest to our city.

I met with many representatives and senators and experienced a great deal of pride as I frequently heard how well our city is represented by District 54 Rep. Jeanie Lauer. Over and over again her colleagues spoke of what an effective, strong leader she is for Blue Springs. Having worked closely with Jeanie in recent years, this confirmed what I already knew about her dedication to the residents of our city and her genuine concern for the best interest of our community. It’s gratifying to know that others recognize her integrity and sincerity. We are fortunate to have her in Jefferson City!

We began interviewing candidate development teams last week, one of which will partner with the city and University of Missouri for the design and development of the 50,000- to 80,000-square foot Mizzou Center building. The Mizzou Center will focus on research, continuing education and community outreach functions in Missouri Innovation Park and will serve as the anchor tenant for this important project.

The land for the first phase of development in the park is now under control of the city, and we are on track for visible development before the end of the year. The location is just south of Adams Dairy Landing, at the corner of R.D. Mize Road and Adams Dairy Parkway.

Jackson County’s regional rail proposal now includes two potential stops in Blue Springs – one downtown and one at the southern edge of the Innovation Park. These two stops will assist Main Street Alive in downtown redevelopment efforts and help to accelerate the development of Missouri Innovation Park. This proposal is likely to be a November ballot issue in Jackson County.

Blue Springs is “on the move?” Yes, mayor, we certainly are!

Meyer Music’s Band of Angels Benefit with Fox 4 Morning Show Team

clock February 20, 2012 15:11 by author Jeff Quibell

Hello all!  Many of you know about the charity program we have started with Fox 4 TV called Band Of Angels.  We collect used musical instruments from donors and make them available free of charge to kids in need.  The program has been very successful and we have given out roughly 300 instruments in the last year to schools and students so they could participate in band and orchestra. This has been a very fulfilling program and is a wonderful way to help children find music.  The best part is that this is a local program and we have been able to help kids across the Missouri and Kansas Metro and surrounding areas.

I have been approached by many who wanted to donate but did not have an instrument to give to the program.  So here is a great way you can help and share some fun times with us too.  On Friday evening March 2nd from 5:30pm to 7:30pm we are going to have a reception with the Fox 4 Morning Show Team.  Come meet your favorite Fox 4 morning show personalities: Mark, Loren, Nick, Stefan & Karli.   For a $15 donation per person to the program, you will be invited to the reception at Gaslight Grill in Overland Park.    At the reception, Gaslight Grill will also donate 15% of any of the food or drinks purchased that evening.  You can also stay for dinner after the reception and 15% of your meal will go towards Band of Angels.  Our goal is to use these funds to help kids who have received a Band of Angels instrument attend music camps.  To get tickets online click here:

The reception is limited to the first 150 people who respond to make their $15 donation.  Your ticket to the reception may be purchased through me or at any of our Meyer Music store locations.  Attached is more detailed information about the event.  I hope you will consider coming to join us.  If you can’t make it and would like to make some type of a donation, feel free to email me back.

My sincerest thanks

Mike Meyer
