BOULEVARD TO KANSAS CITY.
Desire of the Independence Commer-
cial Club and Others.
Definite steps have been taken by the Commercial Club of Independence and the Maywood Improvement Club to secure a boulevard from Independence to Kansas City. A committee composed of members of both clubs was appointed to confer with the county court concerning the project. It is desired to have a boulevard starting west from Walnut street in Independence, through Maywood, which will come into this city on Fifteenth street just south of Mount Washington cemetery. This will necessitate the opening of a road three miles long between Maywood and Independence.
