TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY ROAD VACAY: COUNCIL VOTE PUSHES WESTPORT STREETS CLOSER TO PRIVATIZATION!!!
A move that our blog community has debated for months is now getting closer to reality.
Here's the latest:
KCUR: Westport Sidewalks A Step Closer To Being Privatized
The proposal would allow sidewalks in Westport to be barricaded between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends and for special festivals. To get in, people would have to pass through a metal detector . . . There were 16 gun-related weapons offenses in the district in 2016, according to statistics from the Westport Regional Business League. Through Oct. 31 this year, there were 65. Police say majority of those incidents occurred on weekends at about the time bars close. Wednesday's 4-2 vote came during a joint meeting of the council's planning, zoning and economic development committee and the neighborhoods committee. The ordinance will go before the full council for a discussion before a vote is taken."
Should Kansas City privatize party district streets???
You decide . . .
