celebrating and looking ahead
In just five short years, we improved our net promoter score by 63%, cut crime by 25%, reduced our poverty rate by 40%, and increased household incomes by 24%. In fact, when you consider communities in Kansas that have over 100,000 residents, Shawnee County is now second only to Johnson County for lowest poverty in the state! Our GDP rose by over $1 billion, and our population reached a record high in Shawnee County by 2020.
This infographic below showcases some of the successes we’ve had together as a community and it shows what it’s possible for the future if we all come together.
