TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! LOOK AT THE VERY LATEST KANSAS CITY GREEN IMPACT ZONE PROGRESS REPORT!!!
Some of the very best KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS want to keep us up-to-date on a rather high profile project in Kansas City that mostly receives sympathetic and cursory coverage from the mainstream media.
To wit . . .
THANKS TO TKC TIPSTERS WE CAN SHARE THE LATEST PROGRESS REPORT FROM KANSAS CITY'S GREEN IMPACT ZONE!!!
This is important because these kinds of updates are mostly available to supporters of the endeavor who blindly accept the premise of the project.
So, first of all lets put the link to the info on blast so TKC Readers can form their own opinions . . .
READ THE SEPT. 2012 GREEN IMPACT ZONE REPORT RIGHT HERE!!!
While "green" might be a good look . . . Mostly when it involves Arianny Celeste being mostly nekkid . . . There are still some important questions and observations from TKC TIPSTERS that need to be addressed . . .
For instance the first thing that I noticed was the focus to highlight the upcoming Kansas City Land Bank and Google Fiber freebies as Green Zone progress.
Take a look . ..
"With the transfer of 447 zone properties to the city of Kansas City., and the potential for the potential for a new city-owned land bank, our neighborhoods are taking a positing step towards end the blight caused by vacant lots and dilapidated, unsafe structures.
And with the huge volunteer effort, including donations of time and money, we've helped all the neighborhoods in the Green Impact Zone qualify for Google's ultra-high-speed fiber network, which will bring free Internet connections to schools and public facilities and offer a means to help bridge the digital divide."
Meanwhile . . .
TKC TIPSTERS WONDER ABOUT THE NEW GREEN ZONE JOB TRAINING PROGRAM THAT MIGHT STRAY FROM THE ORIGINAL INTENTION OF THE PROJECT!!!
While the efforts might help participants earn more green . . . TKC TIPSTERS take a more critical view . . .
"The project has become a hodgepodge of so many different schemes it's hard to tell what they're really trying to accomplish. I think Kansas City residents need to really see this for what it is: An earmark that basically trades funding for votes."
More . . .
"And while job training is nice. What jobs are out there for the people who completed this Green Zone project?"
Tiger Grants, a lot of City Hall Cash courtesy of 3rd District Council Dude Jermaine Reed and some other funding currently power the project.
Check the progress report and tell us what other fun stuff you find.
Like it or not and until Kansas City gets the Downtown Toy Train . . . The Green Zone represents the most recent cooperation we've had from the Feds courtesy of Congressman Cleaver. Still, and even among Kansas City's East Side residents, the efficacy of the undertaking has increasingly come into question. So, maybe this update will help to answer concerns.
DEVELOPING . . .
