Who is the Martin City Business and Community Association (MCBCA)?
MCBCA was created in 1998 to raise awareness of the Martin City area and encourage commercial growth with existing and new businesses. A primary driving force for the creation of MCBCA was the lack of infrastructure along 135th Street, which leaders felt was a distinct drawback to business development. Martin City had been annexed into Kansas City, MO in 1963 and yet years later, the primary arterial had received no upgrades from the city so businesses became frustrated.
In January 2005, MCBCA gained a new partner to assist in the quest for a better Martin City when the Martin City Community Improvement District (MCCID) was created. Together, they work tirelessly to create a thriving, viable, commercial community in the southwest corner of the City of KCMO.
With the added clout of the MCCID as a political subdivision, MCBCA has been able to focus on bettering the area through marketing promotions, public events, and collaborations with government, neighborhood, civic and educational partners.
MCBCA is the coordinator for Martin City’s annual St. Patrick’s Parade, the Whiskey Run 5K, and the Holiday Lighting Ceremony.
