Extensive preservation measures to restore the 1933 Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City began during this administration.

The first phase of restoration work on Truman’s Courthouse on Independence Square was another historic preservation project of this Jackson County government. While no longer used as a seat of government or justice, City and County government recognized the importance of this Jackson County landmark. Two more phases of work are planned and additional funding is being sought by the City of Independence, Jackson County government, and local public and private sources to continue the restoration and adaptive reuse of Truman’s Courthouse into a Visitors Center.

The renovation and expansion of the Truman Sports Complex was one Jackson County project commenced during this administration.

Additionally, the two properties owned by Jackson County and leased by Truman Medical Center (TMC) have enjoyed recent expansion and remodeling programs for the benefit of County citizens.

The County’s dedication to caring for its indigent is a tradition of compassion that dates back to at least 1852, when the first site was acquired (today TMC-Lakewood).
