HOME DEMOLITION CHOKES KANSAS CITY!!!
An important fact regarding grand plans to combat Kansas City blight . . .
Dust from demolition of hundreds of KC homes poses health risk
This is a typical Kansas City Lose/Lose situation given that leaving empty and abandoned buildings intact also destroys neighborhoods and presents a public health risk given that hobos, squatters, drug dealers and other criminals set up shop in these abandoned homes. Also, consider so many Kansas City vacants that burn in uncontrolled fires sparked almost every week.
Sadly, there's not an easy solution to this problem and most of Kansas City's short attention span is dedicated to the Toy Train Streetcar anyhoo . . .
