Will Kansas City Save Westport???

Historic preservation has failed and a building boom continues despite neigbhorhood complaints. Sadly, local media mostly misreports "compromise" in order to push the City Hall agenda. Here's the latest exmaple:

Old Westport faces choices: What's worth saving as redevelopment continues?

On a walking tour Saturday, leader Nancy Powell noted that when railroads replaced pioneer trails, the historic town of Westport lost its dominance as the outpost where pioneers, trappers and explores outfitted themselves before heading west. Now another form of progress - redevelopment - is challenging what remains of old Westport in midtown Kansas City.

KC has always been for the developers because the politicians are so easily purchased.

Westport has been dead long ago , only inhabitants are the inner city youth scholar gang bangers that prey upon normal human beings white person who are truly dumbass enough to go there . Hell , even the douchebag homosexual plaza is too damn dangerous for the normal human beings white person to go there . Even the cops don't give a shit about anything else in Killa City , hence the Ferguson effects of the liberals Boyz from the hood humping bitch agenda Boyz !

The Plaza has gone boonsvile. Westport has gone boonsville. Crown Center is probably next. I can not believe you peckerwoods surrender the whole damn city so easily. No wonder we stomped your asses at Little Big Horn.

We in Northeast are losing 5 historic colonnade apartments and several homes to a university for a parking lot. The apartments and homes were contributing entities to an Historic District... the city removed them from that protection and demolition is coming soon. My point is, there is NO hope for history or tradition in this city under the current mayor and council.
