My wishlist for the Northland is new-urbanist (throwback term alert!) infill development in the inner Northland, especially along North Oak and infill along corridors where leapfrog development has occurred, coupled with significant de-annexation. Start with everything southeast of Gracemor/WOF, and everything north of Cookingham.

Oddly, I have a very similar wishlist for south of the River too.

Don't deannex. All that will do is mean Smithville or Liberty takes over the same land.

Wes Minder pointed out the Line Creek Valley (between Barry and 64th) should be one.
