We’d like to congratulate Bob Long, who has been with the EDC for 20 years. Our sincere thanks to Bob for all his hard work and commitment.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
Bob: Seeing the physical changes in the neighborhoods is quite rewarding, especially since I remember what the conditions were 20 years ago.
What’s been the biggest change you’ve seen in KCMO over the last 20 years?
Bob: There have been lots of physical changes throughout the City during the past 20 years, but I think the biggest change is in the “can do” attitude that has developed in many of our neighborhoods.
What’s one wish for KC over the next 20 years?
Bob: My wish is that there will be more resources, public and private, available for our neighborhoods so they can become the best version of themselves.
