Subject: [CPEO-IRF] New community at Sunflower Ammo Plant
Groundbreaking ceremony to mark new era for former ammunition site

New community set to rise east of Lawrence

Lawrence Journal-World (KS)
October 12, 2005

Get ready to watch a new community spring up just east of the Douglas
County line.

Work on redeveloping the former 9,065-acre Sunflower Army Ammunition
Plant will kick off Thursday morning with a public groundbreaking ceremony.

Kise Randall, executive director of the Sunflower redevelopment project
for the Kansas City, Mo.-based development firm of Kessinger/Hunter &
Co., said the project is sure to change the entire Kansas Highway 10 corridor.

?This really is the missing link between the metro area and the Lawrence
area,? said Randall, whose firm was chosen earlier this year to
redevelop the idled plant. ?We?re very excited about the opportunity to
bring this property back to productive use.?
