TKC QUESTION: WILL WESTPORT 'STREET VACATION' SAVE KANSAS CITY PARTY DISTRICT FROM MORE GUNFIRE?!?!



Once again, rather than ranting or silly culture war chest thumping . . . Our blog community of INSIDERS AND KICK-ASS DENIZENS of the local conversation talk POLICY.

Here's a solution worth consideration after AN EPIC GUN BATTLE WITH POLICE OUR BLOG COMMUNITY REPORT FIRST yesterday morning  . . .

Fox4: Westport residents seek safety options after gunman fires into crowd

Deets:

In response to reports of crime in Westport several local groups are pushing for a change.

"Westport has proposed a street vacation which basically would vacate those streets between Pennsylvania and down past Westport Road, and then Westport Road from Broadway over to Mill Street so that would all be private property so that business owners would be responsible for the security there," said Westport resident Patti Meier.

Will that fix those stupid stoplights. That is the real question. Turn the lights back on so people and cars can cross.

This idea is scratching the surface but it's a start.

End it. Westport and the Plaza are unfortunately relics of a Kansas City long since passed. A safe Kansas City.

The only time KC proper cares about it's citizens safety is when there's a sporting event in town. Chiefs, Royals or Sprint Center. That's why I think the city should tare down the Plaza and build a new ball park for the Royals. Then tare down Westport for parking. Making a small tram in between.

In most cities places like Westport would be shut down as a public nuisance. Unfortunately Kansas City is a crime infested shit hole and we know the boons don't want handout haven shut down.

Is the real agenda here to allow crime to devalue Westport property so much that developers can buy it cheap then obtain taxpayer subsidies to "redevelop" it.

Between the people, cars, street parking, and police it's a recipe for disaster after bars close. Streets need to be blocked off and made into pedestrian only areas 24x7, eliminate on-street parking for most of the surrounding area, and include signage directing people to the right spot (i.e. parking, taxi, uber, etc.). If you can't walk a block to your car then you've got problems.

There is always a debate over whether certain "clubs" draw the wrong crowd and the shootings like the one that happened on Saturday. The business and property owners need to hold each other accountable if their patrons are causing problems. Give them a 3-strike policy with shootings/incidents that doesn't discriminate. Once your patrons are responsible for a 3 shootings/incidents you have to close shop. Period. Maybe 3 strikes is too lenient.
