TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CROSSROADS PETITIONERS PREPARE TO STOP KANSAS CITY LIQUOR CODE CHANGE!!!
Quick update this morning on the progress of a petition drive that hopes to stop a proposed liquor code change that could threaten neighborhoods throughout Kansas City and turn the Crossroads into yet another cowtown bar district.
To wit . . .
SOURCES CLOSE TO THE CROSSROADS NEIGHBORHOOD PETITION DRIVE REVEAL THAT THEY'VE NOW COLLECTED THE REMAINING SIGNATURES AND PLAN TO PUT A STOP TO A CONTROVERSIAL ORDINANCE CHAMPIONED BY COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS!!!
Remember that our blog community was FIRST to report this petition effort in response to a controversial ordinance that would weaken Kansas City liquor codes.
Denizens of the tech community and to so-called creative class were quick to trash talk about "Insiders" and power brokers but the reality is that most Crossroads residents don't want the area turning into an entertainment district.
In a rare bit of public disagreement, Council Dude Scott Taylor took aim at this legislation and called out Council Lady Jolie Justus by name in a letter to his constituents.
After all this, MSM finally picked up the drama and attempted to broker what is clearly a Kansas City neighborhood dispute against a new generation of bar owners who didn't think much about how this legislation would apply to other parts of Kansas City beyond the downtown development scene.
You decide . . .
