On April 1, 2016, Rosedale Development Association (RDA) will be hosting “The Land We Live On,” its second annual historical exhibit. The exhibit will tell the story of parks, streets, and urban planning in Rosedale over the last 100 years.
“The Land We Live On” will provide a special look at the many ways our infrastructure has changed since the area was inhabited by Native Americans. Changing boundary lines, street names, and urban development are some aspects the exhibit will highlight. Lead archivist JoJo Palko will curate the exhibit, sourcing materials from the Wyandotte County Historical Museum, Kansas City, Kansas Public Library, and the University of Kansas Libraries.
At the exhibit, two speakers will address the importance of the current master plan and how Rosedale’s history is important to its future: KHC heritage consultant and director of museum studies at the University of Kansas, Dr. Peter Welsh, and Zach Flanders, associate planner at urban planning firm BNIM. Flanders is a member of RDA’s board of directors and the lead planner at BNIM for the Rosedale Master Plan Update.
