GROWING KANSAS CITY.
Since its inception, Brush Creek Community Partners has led world class development and investment in Kansas City's Brush Creek Corridor through advocacy and representation of the Corridor community. For almost 20 years, BCCP has connected a diverse community to a common vision, established and upheld the highest and best standards to realize this vision, and supported partners in attaining their goals.

BRUSH CREEK COMMUNITY PARTNERS’ VISION
IS A SIMPLE YET POWERFUL ONE—
--to grow a world-class cultural, research and park district connected by thriving businesses that are surrounded by healthy neighborhoods in the heart of Kansas City.
Brush Creek Community Partners’ area of focus and influence for economic development and neighborhood revitalization is Elmwood Avenue to State Line Road and 39th Street to 63rd Street, emphasizing redevelopment and improvements for several blocks north and south of Brush Creek, using the prominent waterway as the connector of Kansas City’s east and west. Troost Avenue, Kansas City’s racial and economic dividing line, runs through the heart of the Brush Creek Corridor. BCCP works tirelessly to erase that divide.

Brush Creek Corridor.
THIS IS OUR PURPOSE. THIS IS OUR PASSION.
This is Brush Creek Community Partners. Along with area business, civic and community leaders, BCCP comes together in a socially responsible way to enhance and evolve the Brush Creek Corridor's economic and community growth.
In working toward creating a safe, attractive and thriving Corridor that attracts employers and their employees, residents, students and visitors, Brush Creek Community Partners has given the diverse partnership a collective voice to advocate for resources, allowing this community to compete with other corridors and business districts and bring improvements to the area. By being a strong and unified voice for the Corridor, BCCP allows members to stay focused on their own core missions knowing that as partners, they are moving toward a collective vision.

CRITICAL TO OUR COMMUNITY'S FUTURE.
Increasingly, BCCP has served a vital function as a "backbone organization" in Kansas City's urban core, bringing individual agendas and resources together to develop a collective approach to the community's revitalization. Members of BCCP have learned from each other and aligned their efforts to support each other as the partnership moves toward establishment of a single set of goals with progress towards achieving them.
As a non-profit, Brush Creek Community Partners relies on community and philanthropic support to achieve its goals for leadership, promote development of physical accomplishments east of Troost Avenue, and advance neighborhood redevelopment to realize its vision, resulting in reinvestment and repopulation that is healthy and sustainable.
