TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY MAPLE CORNERS HOUSING PROJECT PLAN CRUMBLES AS NORTHLAND RESISTANCE DISCOURAGES CITY HALL!!!



Along with a great deal of social media rage . . . Our blog community reported widespread resistance to an upcoming project at Maple Corners.

To wit . . .

JUST NOW KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS OFFERS A GLIMPSE OF CITY HALL ABANDONING THE CONTROVERSIAL MAPLE CORNERS HOUSING PROJECT . . . FOR NOW!!!

Here's the word from DOX INTERCEPTED BY OUR BLOG COMMUNITY . . .

"This letter is to notify you that we are withdrawing our FY17 application for 9% LIHTC for the 90-unit Maple Corners site at NE 48th and Randolph Road in Kansas City, Missouri. As the three lead partners for implementation of Paseo Gateway Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grand, we have given careful consideration to this request and the successful completion of the Chouteau Courts public housing development replacement plan . . .

"We have determined that additional time is needed to address community concerns regarding this site. In collaboration with City officials and community members, we are also beginning a broad planning effort to evaluate suitable public housing replacement sites in Kansas City North to take into consideration public transportation, school capacity, and access to employment and services."

Take a look . . .





As with anything from City Hall . . . There's no guarantee that this project won't be restarted eventually. But, for now, Northland concern about low-income residents moving in without access to much needed services has been delayed.

You decide . . .

If that ever happens, it will be:

Claycomo = Grandview

6:21 Claycomo already equals Grandview. The meth is in the air in Gracemore (adjacent to Claycomo). The horribly run, inbred city council in Claycomo is as bad as Grandview.

People opposed this to keep the relatively nice parts of KC that still exist south and north of Claycomo from becoming as bad as Claycomo and the areas south of Parvin.

I agree there's more than enough low-income housing south of Parvin (and I would take it farther north to Vivion). What about along Barry Rd? How about the old hotel across the highway from Tiffany Springs Market Place? I wouldn't go any farther north than that. And make sure it's not on a bus route with just a handful of stops a day. We already have too much low-income housing lacking basic public transit access...which makes somewhere along Barry Rd a better option.
