Empty And Useless Kansas City Kemper Arena Earns 'Historic' Designation



Tribute to a City Hall scheme hinging on the notion that Kansas City suburbanites are going to drag their kids down the railroad tracks in order to play hoops . . .

KSHB: Kemper Arena has received historic designation. This means it will now be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which paves the way for tax credits for redevelopment.

You decide . . .

Does this mean that Sly can now run a streetcar spur to Kemper?

Gawd! Even the National Register of Historic Places is being scammed. What is the arena historic for?

The American Royal? Is it over forty years old? At least?

^^^^^^^^

Woo hoo! I'm over forty years old and thus, given the above logic, am qualified for "historic" status!

Is this a great country or what?

LOL these crooks and liars are amazing. How they get away with this shit is astounding.

Heck in this day and age of zero attention spans fueled by red bull and beer, anything 2 or 3 seconds old qualifies as historic.

They should've leveled it when the roof collapsed.

That place is and was a dump. That place is our Madison Square Garden? SMH...

It's strictly a legal strategy. To benefit a certain set of developers, and not the others. It ties the hands, financially, and requires a huge set of hoops to jump thru. And who approves those submissions? Well, the ladidah insider coterie of folks who run the historic kansas city foundation!

It's pay to play.

It will make it hard to tear the horrid place down and start fresh.

But since nobody reads the Star, this sails thru.

Are they now legally bound to keep the original name since deemed historic? Or will the " new" name stand? You have the inside dish. Thanks.
