TKC MUST SEE!!! DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY HYPE AMID BATTLE OVER CID TACTICS!!!



Online video offers a cleaned up version of Kansas City life inside the loop and doesn't mention all of our new homeless friends.

A key talking point is the use of CIDs - Community Improvement Districts.

What is a CID???

Community Improvement Districts are designed to help improve the community by bettering conditions for existing businesses, and attracting new growth.

Translation: It's a tax.

In fact, KCMO has a hard time distingusing betwixt new taxes vs. REAL revenue as evidenced by this hype chart penned by Team Sly:



And here's where the fun starts . . . In Waldo there's EPIC PUSH AGAINST THE CID STRATEGY. Take a look at their progress and realize that neighborhoods hate this tactic used by politicos and power players.

Nevertheless, to be fair and offer a glimpse at some of the best dressed boosters in KCMO. Check the latest CID and Downtown hype movie this morning:


You decide . . .

I heard there are three (3) CIDs just within the one new convention hotel. Like the garage, the banquet hall, and the rooms are each a separate CID ...

Thanks,
Radish

Easier to screw the people then fight with the wealthy owners (chains)who refuse to clean up the areas.

$1.16 BILLION in “arts and culture”. I’ve never met anyone who said they wanted to travel to Kansas City for their arts. That money would be better spent on crime prevention.

Kansas City is no longer the city it use to be, it has a bad rap nation wide. KC got more tourists back when it was a small cowtown. Crown Center couldn't even make it.

City's are becoming BANANA Republics,Crime Homeless Drugs Corrupt Politicians. City Taxes will go up. And soon people will move out. Forty plus miles out of the BANANA REPUBLIC .

Wish they put as much effort into basic services like keeping the roads up to date as they did this propaganda video

CID's are a scam. lets add sales tax to everything because the property owner failed with his business plan to save money for capital improvements. People get wind they will shop elsewhere.
