2018 starts with Kansas City class-warfare on the sordid subject of fair housing.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS DIRECT OUR ATTENTION TO A COALITION OF PROGRESSIVE URBAN PLANNERS ADVOCATING BENEFITS FOR MORE LOCAL LOW-INCOME HOUSING PROJECTS DESPITE NEIGHBORHOOD RESISTANCE!!!
Confirmation and trend-spotting by our TKC Blog Community . . .
- Yesterday, we noted an upcoming public Library KCMO housing debate on the topic of local housing just after it was posted thanks to so many hobo readers of TKC.
- Kansas City Public TV is gathering local opinion on the topic housing as they prep to make a progressive push for more taxpayer subsidy of local projects and other housing schemes for po'folk.
- Most important of all - City Hall champions the effort for more low-income housing projects as a distraction against the vast majority of their time and resources exerted toward securing the rights of luxury developers.
To wit . . .
Check part of the 12th & Oak social engineering effort from an upcoming ordinance sponsored by Councilman Lucas promoting the utilization of a sales tax exemption on affordable housing projects...
Money line . . .
"The City Council recognizes that a vibrant economy is dependent, in large part, on the ability of its workforce to secure safe housing, and do so at prices that are affordable so that they are not driven to leave the City, but are able to remain and continue to contribute to the City’s economic growth . . ."
Remember, a petition targeting slumlord and "renter's rights" is already on the way to the ballot.
Meanwhile, our blog community offers equal time to Kansas City residents who oppose this low-income housing coalition.
For years, Kansas City Northland residents have raged over the risk of high crime and property value threats from a low-income housing effort.
The latest, special thanks to local leaders who are mounting opposition to this KCMO fair housing push . . .
"Bottom-line - KCMO wants to turn the Northland into a slum. We're already dealing with higher crime and a lack of resources but now City Hall wants to move their problems across the river and they're using terms like "fair housing" in order to do it. The damage will be massive and communities of elderly people and families just staring out will be destroyed in the name of "income equality" or whatever buzzwords these jerks are using. Any opposition is, inevitably, going to be called racism but there is a diverse group of people who won't want more housing projects in KC - In the Northland or anywhere else. I think they will be surprised when they see the information and testimony we present in order to oppose these irresponsible plans."
