Please take our survey

The City of Excelsior Springs invites you to take a few moments to complete a questionnaire on the livability of our city, and your perspective on elements that make a city "age-friendly."

Why is this important? An age-friendly community is a great place to grow up and grow old. As America's population ages, experts believe that the most successful and vibrant communities of the 21st century will be those that are age-friendly -- communities that allow for greater mobility, productivity, and optional health and well-being.
We need your input to inform and guide us as we plan for the future. This survey takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. Your individual responses are anonymous and will be combined with all responses. To complete the survey please click here.

Two proposals submitted in response to RFP

The City of Excelsior Springs requested proposals for renovation/rehabilitation of the Hall of Waters building at 201 East Broadway. Responses were due on July 6, 2016, and two responses were received.
A committee of staff and City Council members have completed a preliminary review of the submissions. As the Hall of Waters is deeply rooted in the identity of Excelsior Springs, the City is in no rush to make a decision on these proposals, but is more concerned with making the best decision for redevelopment of the building.
At this point in time no decision is imminent on these proposals. Should the City choose to act on either of these proposals a meeting will be held to obtain public comments on the proposals before any decision is finalized.
