City Hall TIF For Kansas City Westside Gentrification Stays Losing For Now

At the outset of this week, we talked about widespread community opposition to this taxpayer funded plan and for the moment it has been pushed back: Council Postpones Vote, Will Hold Second Public Hearing On Westside Apartments

Maybe it's starting to sink in that people are getting not tired of, but angry with Sly James and crew throwing away our money?

At least Westside gets a public hearing...beforehand and not after the fact.

We here in the west side will enjoy another generation of vacant lots, abandoned buildings and increased tax to pay for maintenance on infrastructure built for twice as many residents, all while we don't understand why there are not neighborhood amenities close by us like there were back when people actually lived here. We really showed the city on this one! Learn from our example and Keep Urban KC losing people! SMERTCK

Katheryn needed more time to extort money aimed at changing her vote. Its obvious. The only reason for the delay.
