    Who was Matt Ross?

    Matt Ross Community Center is named after Matt Ross, an early visionary leader instrumental in the development of modern-day Overland Park.

    For more than 50 years, Ross was an innovative founder, leader, worker, and advisor for the city and its residents.

    Ross first came to Overland Park in 1951, when it was still Mission Urban Township. Among many other facets of involvement in our community, he served on the township board, helped lobby the state for Overland Park’s name, was a member of the first City Council, and helped create the Overland Park Rotary Club, all while owning a variety store business in Downtown Overland Park and helping raise a family.

    Ross died in 2003 at the age of 94.
