TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! CELEBRATE THE UPCOMING KANSAS CITY OBAMAVILLE COMING TO THE WESTSIDE AND CROSSROADS AREA VERY SOON!!!
A quick check online will reveal that Kansas City Downtown real estate prices are dropping despite the so-called housing recovery that's really more of a dead cat bounce.
But after a triumphant reelection by Prez Obama there's excitement about bringing a big government project within walking distance of the finest Crossroads art galleries, restaurants and the new Toy Train.
To wit . . .
LAST NIGHT MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE GATHERED TO DISCUSS THE KANSAS CITY OBAMAVILLE THAT'S SOON TO MAKE THE CROSSROADS EVEN MORE LIVELY!!!
Public housing is usually a touchy subject even in the most "progressive" neighborhoods but from what I heard there is some excitement about the project and only one complaint from a poor dude who is going to get a front row seat to construction for the next 5 years. All the Latina Grandmas sigh: "Pobrecito."
Still . . . Declining property values aside . . . This project pushed by BNIM, City Staff and more than a few neighborhood leaders has a great deal of community support.
Never mind that a project of this scope (Anywhere from $35 to $60 mil) ALWAYS gets off track and becomes something completely different than what's sold to the community . . .
Still . . . This is really a legacy of the FAILED Kansas City Public School District and neighbors hopeful that big government will fix a problem that it created in the first place.
TKC wants to stress: There aren't really any "bad guys" in this situation (except for me) . . . There are only people too polite to say that the current public housing enclave on the Westside is home to most of the dangerous cross-neighborhood traffic that most lament and there's also a strong suspicion that a recent string of break-ins were "inspired" by this Westside Public Housing model.
But what do I know?
MAYBE DROPPING AN EPIC OBAMAVILLE PUBLIC HOUSING PROJECT SO CLOSE TO THE CROSSROADS IS GOING TO WORK OUT GREAT FOR EVERYBODY!!!
Right now residents with little imagination simply see it as a better alternative to the blighted complex dumped on the neighborhood courtesy of the KCPS.
Humanity is doomed by the fact that most people don't realize that things can always get worse.
Anyhoo . . .
TKC HAS OBTAINED THE SECRET PLANS FOR THE OBAMAVILLE THAT'S SOON TO PUT SO MANY LOW INCOME RESIDENTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE CROSSROADS AND THE NEW DOWNTOWN TOY TRAIN!!!
Take a peek . . .
It looks nice and during the meeting neighborhood residents were reminded the best laid plans of BNIM have helped to save placed like Greensburg and now there's a hope that the good intentions of developers won't have any consequences so close to Kansas City's Downtown area.
DEVELOPING . . .
