Greg Kindle, President of the Wyandotte Economic Development Council, was our speaker this morning, and he talked about some amazing things happening in Wyandotte County.

The Council is very active, pursuing opportunities with business retention and expansion, and workforce solutions. Capital investment is in 30 projects, 3.1 million square feet and over 400 jobs. From the Missouri River to Bonner Springs, along the 435 corridor, east to west, there's a lot going on in WYCO. In Bonner Springs alone, the city is in a partnership with ARCO Construction and Evergy to develop a 32-acre site offering a great location, strong logistics and highway access for a new attraction. Sandstone Townhomes is a $33 million investment in Bonner. The single-family Cottages at Village West will be going up on 118th Street. The Homefield - Margaritaville resort and family entertainment center along 98th Street is targeted for an opening in the Spring of 2024. This will be the first full-service hotel in Wyandotte County. Last but not least, Orange EV, offering the first commercially sold class 8 electric vehicles in the country, will be moving from Riverside to the Turner Logistics Park.

There's more, a whole lot more going on in Wyandotte County. For more information, go to the Wyandotte Economic Development Council website Wyandotte Economic Development Council (
