KANSAS CITY WESTSIDE STAYS WINNING OVER TAXPAYER FUNDED GENTRIFICATION!!!



Credit to a great many locals, city council for listening and the Fed for threatening to raise interest rates . . .

Here's another Kansas City real estate scheme that didn't work:

KC Biz Journal: EPC Real Estate Group LLC’s $18 million mixed-use project on Kansas City’s West Side has been withdrawn after a series of concessions that failed to stem neighborhood opposition and delays.

They're coming back with a scaled back plan and the reality is that if they weren't asking for variances and City Hall subsidy, they could build whatever they wanted . . . However, this is one small instance revealing that the speculative land grab bubble on the West side of town is bursting.

Developing . . .

Taxing the crap out of your citizens so that you can subsidize political insiders and your city will struggle to maintain mediocrity.

Keeping new residents and taxpayers out is a BIG WIN for a neighborhood that lost over 10 % of it's population in the last census, and has lost population every decade since the 1950s. Same amount of infrastructure, just older, now paid for by fewer and fewer residents. SMARTWestside.

The Westside is mostly vacant lots now. Nothing "old world" about it. Take a trip to Europe and see what their cities look like, you fucking hillbilly.

To Mr. Anonymous "SMARTWestside" guy....You obviously DO NOT LIVE on the Westside and if you do, you DID NOT grown up there! You see I know this because our community is NOT about BIG MONEY OR DEEP POCKETS!!! You want to develop in our neighborhood....ok, well how about you start with building something that actually BENEFITS THE ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD!!! NOT just for those ppl in Johnson County wanting to take over our neighborhood! Yes shame on us for trying to save our neighborhood from deep pocket developers! GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! You cannot come into a neighborhood that has been established for over 50+ years and try to dictate what we need or try to move us out!!!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Keep your big money away from a neighborhood who NO ONE every wanted to live in before!! Ten years ago all you wanna be downtown ppl didn't have a clue where or what the Westside was!!! So leave us alone!! If the developments do not benefit the community as a whole, then you can keep it!! Don't be mad at a neighborhood who does not want nor need anymore damn luxury housing!
