Argentine Neighborhood Development Association donates recreational and community improvements to Unified Government

Kansas City Kan- Argentine Neighborhood Development Association is proud to announce their donation of over $675,000 in cash contributions, property, and park and community recreational improvements to the Unified Government of Wyandotte County. These contributions include: the donation of the property valued at $500,000, where the new Public Safety Campus will be built; a $10,000 cash donation to the Kansas City Kansas Police Department for new interior equipment for there offices which will be located on the new Public Safety Campus; improvements to Vega Field including three new park benches and two concrete pads for existing benches; new interior lighting for the restrooms facilities; and improved tennis courts at Emerson Park which will include resurfacing of the courts' new fencing' nets and lighting. The projects we have been a part of have been very successful in both changing the face of the Argentine neighborhood and the lives of the people that live there. We felt like it made sense to continue plowing the economic gains these projects generated back into the neighborhoods so that the entire community could share in the project's success. These substantial contributions and improvements were made possible by leveraging the multi-million dollar redevelopment project and ANDA is engaged in on the 17 acre brownfield site located in Argentine. Tangible improvements like theses help to provide the amenities and valuable local services that Argentine residents haven't had access to in decades. ANDA is very proud of the infrastructure improvements, the community health programs, and the commercial and residential developments that Argentine has experienced in the last several years through ANDA's work. These have included raising $1.6 million in charitable funds to build and open the new Save A Lot grocery store at 2102 Metropolitan Avenue, the new Wal-Mart that is being built now and will open later this summer near the new Public Safety Campus site, and the construction of the new Simmons Villas 22-unit senior living project underway now.
