Mayor And City Council Use Eminent Domain To Condemn Eastside Kansas City Homes
Just another sign that Mayor Sly and the City Council have lost touch with neighborhoods and would much rather prepare for the All-Star game or hang out with corporate cronies . . .
Kansas City Council approves plan to condemn homes for East Patrol
"More than 60 homes on Kansas City’s east side will soon be demolished.
"City council members voted on Thursday to condemn the homes between 26th and 27th Street from Prospect and Brooklyn."
Interesting that most other Kansas City mainstream media other than KSHB have stayed away from this story so far . . .
From one of the organizers who opposed the use of Eminent Domain by City Hall . . .
"Dweeb Reed and Mindless Melba passed the ordinance to condemn my house today; along with Slick & the crew. Rosemary Lowe, John Miles from Morningstar Baptist Church were there. And why would representatives from a church be present at a condemnation proceeding?"
Hopefully, we will have more news, hateration and all kinds of interesting stuff coming up in just a few but for the moment it's worth noting that Mayor and City Council have very little interest in working with any local community or neighborhood in order to develop solutions. For the most part our elected leaders at City Hall are focused on partnering with local elite, campaign donors and biz power players than doing anything in particular at the grassroots level.
