The Inter City Fire Protection District is holding an open house at 7 p.m. Thursday to talk about the issue of street names and numbers in Blue Summit.


In emergencies, especially at night, finding addresses in the unincorporated area of Jackson County on Independence’s western edge can be confusing, according to the fire district. The addresses were set up with a combination of Kansas City and Independence street grids, which don’t align precisely.


The fire district has recommended several changes to street names.


Maps of the proposed changes will be available at the open house, which will be at the Blue Summit Baptist Church, 1700 Bryan Ave.
