The Midtown/Plaza area plan, a new roadmap for development and redevelopment created by citizens in thousands of hours of meetings, got the green light from the city council. As it goes into effect, discussion continues over the makeup of the implementation committee.

Also at city hall, the council told the city manager to find ways, both public and private, to pay for improvements to the 18th and Vine historic area.

The county legislature got a replacement for Mike Sanders, who recently resigned as county executive. Fred Arbanas was officially sworn in as temporary county executive on Tuesday, and legislator and former Royals star Frank White has announced interest in the permanent position.

Jackson County legislators also made history by electing women to lead them for the first time.

Highwoods Properties announced a plan to sell the Country Club Plaza to two new owners.

Our Monday history feature was a look back at the Westport area known as Nutterville, formerly a residential area but now the colorful home of businesses.
