- Holly Grummert and Logan Heley, Ward 1 City Councilmembers, spoke on many projects the City has planned and is already underway. One big item discussed was Marty Park (previously Marty Pool) and the Farmer’s Market. Both projects will include requests for public opinions and input.

Ballot Voting Decisions:
Backyard Chickens: The membership rejected / voted against the acceptance of chickens within Milburn Fields. As the City outlined, HOAs may prevent you from acquiring them. Several members of the audience voiced their opinions against backyard chickens. Our current by-laws mention that there should be ‘no livestock’ within the neighborhood – therefore Milburn Fields has opted to not allow for them.
- No votes = 29
- Yes votes = 12
Neighborhood Signage voting:
Now that the street project is complete, we would like to proceed with a design for the city to install street pole signage at the main intersections and corners of our neighborhood. We estimate 11 signs placed strategically around and within our neighborhood boundaries. The Board will keep you posted on the project timeline.
With 31 total votes, here is the winning design:
One of the topics we discussed with Brandon Hearn was composting! Some neighbors already use curbside composting services, and Alex from the Board will reach out to FoodCycle KC to see if we can coordinate a group rate. We polled residents via our Facebook audience, and there was a significant number that ‘Maybe’ interested in signing up! More to come – read more here!
