Overland Park Golf Course Festival Update
David Erlich, Local Executive Producer, Superfly Megan, Ruby Hill Rep to the Neighborhood Committee Helene, Neighbors of Overland North
Superfly has hired a traffic engineer and consultant; Ken Worstad from Creighton Manning
Will work with neighborhoods on traffic plan before going to the City
There will also be a security plan, a signage plan, an environmental plan, etc. all reviewable and commented on by the neighborhoods before they go to the City
Currently work is being done on naming and marketing. A formal announcement of the festival will come in late February/early March
Jacqui and Helene are part of the neighborhood committee presenting our concerns, questions, and comments to Superfly. The committee includes representatives from Ruby Hill, Athmar, NOON, Overland Park Neighborhood Association (OPNA), Neighbors of Overland North (NOON), the Golf Course, and Councilman Clark’s office
Community foundation component – David is pushing for multiple small grants to go to local charitable organizations.
An advisory board from the community will provide recommendations on local non-profits to give the grants to. $50-60k annually. Part for the first year has already been designated for the Greenway Foundation and the Levitt Foundation
Helene encourages us to start thinking of small, local (west-side), non-profits that could benefit from a small grant and do direct good within our neighborhoods
There will be further formal outreach to the community to weigh in on the various plans, but the next gathering will be an informal meeting with the Superfly marketing team, at Bear Creek Distillery at 6:30pm on January 30th
Logos for our neighborhood association were reviewed by a small group and the strongest option will be presented to the full neighborhood association next month.
