CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE: COUNCIL LADIES TERESA LOAR & HEATHER HALL WORKED TO SUPPORT KANSAS CITY TINY HOME COMMUNITY FOR VETERANS!!!
When we talk about Kansas City development and priorities there's usually a cacophony of amateur urban planners hoping to dominate the discussion with chatter that everyone pretends to read via social media . . . But the real work of offering support for zoning, codes and all the rules & regs that threaten every local construction project is often unmentioned.
This week a worthwhile project to help struggling veterans came to fruition.

KSHB: Tiny homes, big dreams: 13 homeless veterans move into tiny home village Monday
To be fair, this project did earn support from most of the council but we notice that both Council ladies Hall & Loar have been touting this project within, around and throughout City Hall for more than a year.
While so many local politicos are obsessed with touting luxury condo real estate for the richest Downtown Kansas City denizens, it's worth mention that Council members Hall & Loar continually backed this project and encouraged their constituents to do the same.
