KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

After a month of discussions, a new single-terminal Kansas City International Airport is one step closer to being built.

The memorandum of understanding put forward by Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate passed committee on Thursday and will go before the full council within the next week.

Legal officials broke down the most recent changes made to the memorandum. Forty-five concerns were brought forward and 43 were resolved.

The goal is to have a new single-terminal KCI by November of 2021.

In order to keep the project on track, the legal team said the memorandum of understanding needs to be approved.

Some Council members said the initial memorandum was not a good deal for the city. After 18 drafts, council members now believe this is the best ordinance that will benefit all of Kansas City.

Mayor Sly James said Thursday was crucial to move the project forward.

Once at the full council, members have several options. They could approve it, have more questions about it or decide to go in an entirely different direction.

The revised ordinance will need seven of the 13 votes to be approved.
