One More Look @ Kansas City Westside Victory Against Gentrification TIF

Stellar community reporting from The Northeast News in write-up of a recent "blight" fight that's really about tax breaks. Take a look: West Side comes out in droves against apartment development

Nice turnout. This will be interesting to see if Sly and the council give a crap about what residents concerns.

Hopefully Sly and the council just let the free market decide, and the Westside will get a dense infill development with no parking garage. People who complain about "traffic" should just be ignored. Traffic is what streets are for.

The city needs to start allocating all resources based on population. Plowing, street maintenance, bus service, fire stations, PD response, sewer and water repairs, community centers, etc.

If you don't want anyone to live in your neighborhood, you need to pay for your own shit.
