It is interesting to a see how Google handled the press and invitation to the launch of the Google fiber launch.
They have a simple website that allows you to learn about the what it has to offer and ask you to pre-register. Well, the fun part is they want you to talk to your neighbours to pre-register so you can rally up votes for your area and they track the registration within KCMO and KCK on live map, guess what Google Map!
If you live in KCK or KCMO you can go to https://fiber.google.com to pre-register and let Google know your are ready for them.
For the "Beige Colony" here in Overland Park, you are right. Not available at this time
Oh BTW, if you are interested in seeing live demo Google has 30 min sessions you can sign up online. I am on it.
