To support the mission of Urban Neighborhood Initiative in growing Kansas City’s core, there are numerous workgroups that meet regularly to look at opportunities and obstacles to that process. As these groups create tools and identify new ways of moving forward, we provide them here.

Compass KC – the new permitting system

Introducing Compass KC, a new permitting system that makes it easier to do business with The City of Kansas City, Missouri online and on your schedule. Compass KC links city departments to provide a one-stop shop for residents and businesses, covering permits, plans, payments and more.

The Compass KC software will allow residents to apply for various permits electronically, eliminating the need to trek down to City Hall to pick up and pay for permits.

You can pre-register now to streamline your initial use of the Compass KC permitting system. Click the icon below to submit your info on preregistration portal. We strongly encourage all citizens to pre-register before the system goes live later this year.
