Kansas City Pays For Burns & Mac Blight Fight
Here's a look at Kansas City eco-devo based on "blight" and City Hall offering the troubled neighborhood of a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR international corporation a bit of financial assistance.
That Burns & McDonnell TIF And Vandalism
Perspective . . .
"Of course, Burns & Mac got its taxpayer subsidy, in part because of the “vandalism” that had occurred inside the empty buildings. In a hearing before the Kansas City TIF Commission, Scott Belke, the consultant who prepared the blight study, said, “This is one of the most vandalized buildings I’ve seen in my 29 years of work.” Thus, TIF supporters argued, the site and buildings needed to be remediated … with taxpayer support."
Fear not, the blighted building has been demolished and City Hall helped Burns & Mac pay for the blight fight that continues in this rough and tumble section of South Kansas City.
