Saturday Meetup: South Kansas City Renaissance Coming Soon???

Constant hope for economic development and possibly a reduction in rising crime. Here's locals counting on corporations to keep their promises and hopefully not holding their breath:

Residents gather for SKC Economic Summit

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Dozens of area residents gathered at Avila University Saturday for the fifth annual South Kansas City Economic Summit. New development projects from Cerner and Burns and MCDonnell were to be discussed, along with the Red Bridge Shopping Center revitalization, and the planned replacement of the Bannister Federal Complex with a major industrial park.

Nothing says success like having good 'ole John Sharp in the middle of it.
Meddling never really has gotten much done, and the former comments are correct. Unless violence and crime are gotten under some degree of control, south KCMO will continue to deteriorate regardless of how much subsidized "eco devo" schemes are hatched.
Sharp wishes more Cerner employees would live in south KC instead of Johnson County.
Dream on!
When they leave the Cerner fortress, they're out of there!

Nothing but corporate welfare paid for by taxpayers. All other basic services monies drained and siphoned off for this idiocy.

^^^^^^^^^^ Good comment, just welcoming corporate looting. This won't help the neighborhoods.

Our unabated crime rate will ruin it all.
