TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! SPRING CLEANING: UPSCALE LOOSE PARK NEIGHBORHOOD COPES WITH KANSAS CITY BLIGHT WITH NO HELP FROM CITY HALL!!!
Here's important testimony regarding an upscale neighborhood coping with homeowner neglect and no response from politicos just like every other part of this town.
Cleanup - Loose Park Homes Association
It is a sad state when a property in our fine neighborhood is allowed to be in a state of disrepair and remodeling for five years. This is the record. The City has not responded with fines and arrest warrants as they should. OUR NEIGHBORS have decided to do some clean up on their own. They are asking for help from neighbors to get the yard cleaned up. See this note below:
"Please distribute to our Loose Park Homes Assoc. members:
The home owner hasn't done it, The City has been no help, it is time we did it our selves. The property at ####### West 53rd Street is a neighborhood embarrassment. We should know. WE have lived across the street for 15 years and the last 5 the property has been neglected even more.
We have attempted to contact the owner with no results. I have contacted our two city council members and promises have not been kept. I believe it is time for us to take some action to clean up the yard of leaves and branches.
Sutherlands Lumber has donated leaf bags and grass seed. For anyone interested in raking and bagging leaves, we will start at 10:00 on Saturday April 21 (rain date is the 22nd) The bags will be picked up as part of the City's Spring yard pickup on Friday the 27th.
I know we all have busy schedules but if you can give us some time it would be great. Bring your kids. If you can't work, just stop by and give us moral support.
If you have any questions, email me or call . . .
Thanks in advance.
Please show up and help out however you can . . . Loose Park Homes Association
Accordingly, this sad tale of neglect and then local activism inspires our playlist tonight.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
