Historic Kansas City Kemper Arena?!?!
A losing GOP convention and many horrible soccer games could save the legacy of yet another old-school Kansas City eco-devo project that didn't work:
Fox4: Plans to demolish Kemper may be canceled if it’s designated as historical
"If Kemper were to be listed on the national register, it could not be demolished to make way for a 5,000 seat equestrian center that American Royal boosters want to build.
American Royal President Bob Petersen says he’s surprised the arena is under consideration for historic designation. He says Kemper sits dark for much of the year, with only a handful of events scheduled. The arena needs more than $20-million in deferred maintenance . . ."
Of course the destination isn't really historic but the alternative to saving the place is Kansas City wasting many more millions as tribute to one of the 1% families that runs this town. In that sense, history is kind of repeating itself . . .
