LEAWOOD HY-VEE DEBATE REVEALS THE GOLDEN GHETTO MOVING FURTHER SOUTH!!!



The last remaining middle-class white people are no longer content to live within arms length of Kansas City Proper . . . Nowadays they're moving AS FAR AS POSSIBLE FROM THE URBAN CORE and barely qualify as denizens of the metro area.

To wit . . .

DEBATE OVER THE LEAWOOD HY-VEE REVEALED THE GROCERY STORE WOULD RATHER MOVE ALL THE WAY OUT 135TH & ROE!!!

Seriously, this has part of town has BARELY anything in common with Kansas City and might as well be a suburb of Lawrence.

Two links on the topic for Tuesday:

Fox4: “Our comments to the city that we would entertain and come discuss our project with them, really our project on file at this point in time is really at 135th and Roe,” said Peter Hosch, Hy-Vee’s Assistant Vice President of Store Development.

KCTV5: Dozens of residents showed up for a Leawood City Council meeting after Hy-Vee said it would close its Leawood store over a tax improvement dispute.

The lesson here is that even the finest suburbs in the Kansas City metro area are disposable and not any match for persistent, local white flight.

The notion of using tax money for improvements to a grocery store in Leawood is almost as ridiculous as TIF projects in the Palza. It's about time for some of these elected folks to actually represent the public and stop looking at the taxpayer as a business subsidizer of FIRST resort.
Either that or have Polsinelli, Hy- Vee and all the rest start providing police protection and road repair.
Please stop squeezing the Charmin.

Agreed, cities like Leawood can just simply go the Mission Hills route and have no business. Doesn't seem to diminish home values in Mission Hills.

OMG - HyVee is moving 3.5 miles so I guess we'll have to declare Leawood a food desert. Don't these people have cars?

They need to propose an Aldi and a Dollar General in the old Hyvee space. Really give those rich a holes something to cry about.

All big cities will soon become Detroit. The process is unrelenting and like a T 1000, will not stop.

"Detroit's woes are no secret. Joblessness, poverty, gangs, illiteracy and crime now plague the once-thriving hub of the automotive industry. In July 2013, the city became the largest municipal government ever to file for bankruptcy. Studies estimate 25 percent of Detroit's population have departed, reducing the city to numbers predating the Industrial Revolution.
Those who remain have watched Detroit decay into one of the most dangerous cities in the United States. In 2012, the Detroit Free Press reported 386 homicides - the highest in two decades , and nearly as many as New York City, whose population is more than three times larger. The same year saw 1,263 non-fatal shootings, more than 400 rapes and nearly 5,000 robberies.
In 2013, a New York Times report found police response times to Level One priority calls in Detroit were a staggering 58 minutes. The rate of cases solved stood at a mere 8.7 percent. Some police officials even took warning visitors that if they came to the city, the should "enter at their own risk."

The good news for the people of Detroit is, no one pays their property taxes--246.5 million in arrears.

No one is made to pay their water bills--260 million behind.

Things are turning around!

Typical Leawood whiners. First world problem, people, first world problem.

Isn't it truly amazing that no business will propose any improvement without some form of public "assistance" (aka corporate welfare) these days. Sure it is a sales tax for that district only; however, they just don't want to raise their base prices to pay for the improvements.

My god Hy Vee, just bite the bullet, make the improvements and pass the cost onto the customers. You know that Leawood has the highest per capita income in the friggin state, don't ya? I hope Cosentino's is laying in wait to swoop in an devour that market -- as they have a better reputation, cleaner stores and lower prices.

good grief, leawood people. you live in freaking joco. when you live there, you have to get in your car and drive just to take a whiz. that's why god gave you that lexus. "walkable communities" is such a ghetto concept.

"the Wood" fast becoming the "Detroit" of Kansas.

I had to go to Oak Park Mall yesterday. Surprised how busy it was at 1PM.

There were many African Americans with thier pants under and I mean under thier ass cheeks doing the ghetto walk while grabbing their dicks.

Security doesn't say shit to them. I guess that would infringe on a Cultural Heritage or something.

Lemme repeat, the pants were way the hell down almost to the knees.

I guess if lil Wayne pulls his dick out on stage and raps for a couple of hours, then we will have to see folks walk around naked so as not to hurt any one's feelings.

Fuckin disgusting.

8:18 the reason HyVee doesn't just raise prices is then the prices people see would reflect what they pay. By adding sales tax the price is hidden until the cash register. In reality these cities are only helping stores to use deceptive sales practices.

um, 135th and Roe is still IN Leawood folks.

Did you see Dan Wright with 98.1 is livid about the store closing. If it were up to that libtard, she would make grocery stores government controlled just like healthcare. That woman is as clueless as Clair McCaskil.

CID's were originally to help improve blighted area's without direct government support, just taxing those who used the services offered in the CID. Now we have welfare for corporations, communism in another word. Government choosing who wins and who loses and the majority of the sheep only want a latte' living life without a clue.

What self-respecting Johnson Countian shops at HyVee anyway? Hen House and Dean and Deluca are the best.

The empty building will make a nice Big Lots or thrift store.

9:27 is right. In most of the world, when you ask what something costs, the answer includes any taxes. Price tags show price including taxes. Foreigners come to the USA and go into shock when they find out the price is never the price at all, unless they're in one of the few states with no sales taxes. They think American prices are fraudulent.

Fuck TIF and Hy-Vee. Good for Leawood telling them to piss up a rope. The other small business don't get shit for tax breaks around there so why should they.

Hasn't Leawood pretty much wanted to be a bedroom community and the government there pretty much historically been a pain in the butt to deal with?

Let residents there drive their beemers to do business elsewhere. They can afford it.

Meanwhile I hear Wichita is thinking of annexing southern JOCO.
