During the past week, the city broke ground for the downtown streetcar route. The city also celebrated Bike to Work Day with some announcements about the effort to make Kansas City more bicycle friendly. And we told you about Redeemer Fellowship’s way of building community – through regular dominos games played outside near the church and nearby apartment building.

We checked in with one of the organizers of the effort to improve the playgrounds in Roanoke Park. We also wrote about a celebration in Manheim Park as residents got a grant for community gardening and cleanup efforts.

Our real estate experts offered some advice if you are getting ready to list your home:  know your market.  As you do, they say, it’s important to understand what goes into market value.

In Midtown history, we brought you the story of the Orphan Boys Home, once on the site of what is now a Westport shopping center.
