TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY PO'FOLK PETITION MAYOR AND COUNCIL AGAINST EMINENT DOMAIN RELOCATION SCHEME ON ARMOUR!!!
Sadly, the current epoch in Kansas City politics mostly skews in favor of developers and elites working against low income housing.
Take a look at this petition recently started:
Demand ethical and lawful treatment for residents of the Bainbridge housing complex and all low-income Armour Corridor housing
"The Bainbridge, Georgian Court, and Linda Vista apartments along Armour Boulevard are home to over 400 residents, many of whom are families with young children, or are elderly and/or disabled. In the past year, a small but influential group of our neighbors have been working closely with the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association board and city officials to designate these properties as “socially blighted,” which will enable the city to shut down and then seize the buildings by eminent domain, and then relocate the residents without their knowledge or consent. This group has excluded members of the larger community and, most importantly, the Bainbridge residents themselves."
Again, Mayor Sly and his "win at all costs" approach to politics has pretty much excluded residents who don't have political connections and has turned its back on Kansas City's poor.
