Dan Fowler Kansas City

2nd District in District City Council

Dan Fowler was elected to serve the residents of the 2nd District of Kansas City, Missouri in June of 2015. Since taking office, Councilman Fowler has worked for Northland families and their interests– promoting new development, neighborhood infrastructure improvements, and effective and transparent government.

Accomplishments

Councilman Fowler has been a leader on Northland issues, attracting families and businesses to the Northland through these accomplishments:

  • Helped broker the  deal to bring a new Costco north of the River
  • Sponsored the Platte Purchase Redevelopment District, which pays for and maintains new roads, flood control, and new trail system around Costco and the coming middle and high schools
  • Directed funding to manage stormwater issues in the East Fork Line Creek area

  • Transparent and accountable public official, meeting with more than 50 community groups and hosting quarterly “Donuts with Dan” meetings engaging hundreds of constituents
  • Educated his constituents on new policies, procedures, and ordinances
  • Increased the number of code enforcers in the Northland, helping to keep our neighborhoods safe and clean
  • Brought a 1 million square foot CVS Distribution Center, helping create hundreds of jobs

Policy

Jobs

Jobs are vital to Kansas City’s future. With its rapidly developing infrastructure, the city is ideally suited to encourage high-tech manufacturing, distribution and warehousing. Kansas City is a national center for transportation and there are many opportunities for business development near the KCI airport and surrounding areas.

With the development of these business arenas, it is important that the city partner with its educational institutions to prepare the next generation to compete for and fill these high-demand positions.

It is also necessary to improve public transportation in the Northland with better roads, reinforced bridges and increased access to different types of transport.

If re-elected, I will continue to work closely with the KCATA to ensure public transportation options better connect the Northland with the rest of Kansas City.

Neighborhoods

If re-elected, building, protecting and revitalizing our neighborhoods will continue to be one of my highest priorities. Strong and safe neighborhoods are the foundation of our great city.

In order to provide sustainable neighborhoods that will attract families to the Northland, I have increased code enforcement efforts that help keep our neighborhoods safe and clean.

I will continue to address block-by-block revitalization, as seen in the East Fork Line Creek area, to ensure sidewalks and streets are improved and stormwater issues are resolved. As your Councilman, I will continue to work with both public and private partnerships as well as the nonprofit community to encourage neighborhood-minded development.

Development

As a small business owner myself, I understand that one of the largest barriers to development in Kansas City is the permit process. We need to let developers and those bringing industry to the city know that we are “open for business”. I will continue to work with City Council and City Staff to help remove this barrier to development.

I will continue to fight against bad development plans in the Northland such as the Brinshore Development plan.

Entrepreneurship

One of Kansas City’s strengths is entrepreneurship. We must become more business friendly and streamline the process in which businesses can grow in our city.

We should continue providing new tech companies with the infrastructure necessary to ensure their success.

We must foster a business-oriented environment and defend against Kansas poaching our small businesses.

Crime

In order to attract new businesses and families to the Northland, we must ensure that we work with law enforcement to understand and eliminate crime in our region. We must drastically improve response times for police and fire protection.

During my first term, the city completed construction on a new police station near Ambassador Drive. The station will serve as a full justice center with a courtroom and holding facility to minimize travel time for the police and the public.

Education

My goal is to increase workforce training in the Northland. As businesses such as Costco, CVS and Menards expand into our region, we must partner with school districts and educational institutions to expand job training opportunities so our residents can fill these employment needs.

In addition to increased job training opportunities, I will continue to meet directly with community members and provide information on new City ordinances and ballot initiatives.

Neighborhood Connections

The 2nd District has a thriving trail system that allows neighborhoods to be connected with their surrounding communities. I was a proud supporter of the Platte Purchase Redevelopment District, which pays for and maintains the new trail system around Costco and the upcoming middle and high schools.
