SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN DOUBLE DOWN!!! INSIDE THE LOOP THEY'RE GETTING MORE MONEY THAN INITIALLY REQUESTED!!!
Recently, AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS intercepted a communique from The Downtown Council regarding a big money celebration.
The note reveals details of a recent meeting of the Downtown Council's Infrastructure and Greenspace Committees
Check the money line:
"The highlight of the meeting was the news that nearly $2.2 million in funding was approved by City Council for the Greater Downtown Area Plan (GDAP) Implementation Committee's PIAC requests. This amount exceeded the implementation committee’s initial ask of $1.5 million by about $700,000."
A moment of pause and then this . . .
IN THE MIDDLE OF A CITY HALL HIRING FREEZE AND ONGOING NEIGHBORHOOD AUSTERITY . . . MAYOR SLY AND CITY COUNCIL ARE THROWING MONEY AT ONGOING DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY DEVELOPMENT THAT SURPASSES INITIAL REQUESTS!!!
Once again it's clear that NOBODY is minding the store @ 12th & Oak while the rest of Kansas City still waits for the Downtown Renaissance.
