The final chapter in a Kansas City tale of weatherizing and pork . . .
Green Impact Zone quietly closes shop
Just a few more deets from KCTV5:
"The Green Impact Zone initiative launched with grand fanfare five years ago, but the staff quietly closed its office earlier this year.
Federal, regional, private and city funding have ended after about $166 million were pumped into a 150-square block area in the inner city. The area went from 39th Street to 51st Street and included Troost and Prospect avenues and as well Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard."
More than any other recent project in memory, this one generated a great many complaints by people who never really bothered to help anything on the East side of Troost in the first place.
