The part about relocating the family's farmhouse was very interesting. Would love to see pictures of the house and the relocation.

Lees Summit already is overbuilt in retail. Then need economic development in form of large employers as it seems half the population commutes on 470 to work in the Jr. College Blvd corridor.

Quite a long time coming. Lee's Summit annexed some of that land from Unity Village back in 2011 in hopes of getting it developed. https://lsmo.granicus.com/MetaViewer.ph ... a_id=14834
