Boulevard Brewery Beer Garden Battles Against Kansas City Sacred Heart Church
Kansas City boozing still confronts Westside neighborhood opposition as this town's favorite brewer seeks more parking spaces at the expense of nearby Sacred Heart Church.
Here's a few more fun facts . . .
- A recent memo from the Brewery claims support from the Church to a Cit Hall planning commission for a zoning variance. THAT MEMO IS INCORRECT. Several members of the faith community don't want the beer garden in the Church backyard.
- There is a meeting tomorrow at Blvd. at 5:30 where there the company will make their pitch to nearby residents who disagree with the plan.
- A coalition of Westside residents and Westside Sacred Heart leaders have organized their opposition to the expansion and infringement of the neighborhood of the rapidly expanding company.
