Can Brad Pitt And Congressman Cleaver Save Kansas City With Green Zone Goodness?!?
From Congressman Cleaver's EC from DC newsletter . . .
The latest update on the Green Zone touts job creation numbers and a bit of a Kansas City celebrity connection.
PROGRESS CONTINUES IN GREEN IMPACT ZONE
"Work continues on the repurposing of the Bancroft School in Kansas City. The project, which involves Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation, will provide some 50 LEED Platinum apartments and should be completed in the next few months. One of the focuses continues to be the creation and retention of jobs in the urban core. Several of the graduates of the Green Impact Zone’s Essential Employability Skills Training are now employed and working on the school. I am excited about the Bancroft School initiative and all that is going on within the Green Impact Zone – and will continue to keep you updated on developments. "
