RESIDENTS RAGE AGAINST KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE HOBO CAMPING SEASON!!!
Quick update for drivers going North or anybody passing through one of the most diverse communities in the metro . . .
KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS ARE STARTING TO VOICE COMPLAINTS THE NUMBER OF HOBO CAMPS PROLIFERATING THROUGHOUT THE URBAN CORE!!!
Talk of this trend has been worse over the past week . .
- In Northeast Kansas City right off Independence Ave. & Paseo there's a constant impromptu hobo camp that welcomes travelers as soon as they get off the highway.
- Hobos have set up shop in the back woods of the West Bottoms and seem to be settling in for the long haul.
- Meanwhile, to the east of Downtown there are a few hobo camps inside abandoned buildings that have yet to enjoy the benefits of the Kansas City toy train streetcar.
The complaints are starting to mount but what's clear is to any denizen of midday traffic is that Kansas City's homeless population is rising this Summer and locals are having a harder time balancing kindness with the protection of their property.
