Jackson County Property Tax Spike Also Killing Embattled Country Club Plaza

This party district has suffered youth mobs, Internets competition and a really poor selection of discount chain brands.

The latest insult after injury comes from The Courthouse:

"On average, the assessed value of commercial property in Jackson County jumped 36%, compared with 16% on single-family homes and 18% on all residential properties."

Jackson County property assessments jump after Plaza tiff - Kansas City Business Journal

When the Country Club Plaza complained about its property tax assessment two years ago - and won a reprieve - it cited equity issues. Jackson County seems to have worked around that fairness issue in a simple way: raise rates for commercial properties throughout the county.

Plaza owners should bail out now! They raise PT and there has been absolutely no upgrade in property, business, or infrastructure in the city! Only cheap apartments that don't fit into the area. There's no planning, and no preservation. The crossroads look like hell, crime is so high no one wants to go to the Plaza, bad streets, and cheap stores. Crown Center has bums in the link, and on the stairs in the hallways. Where are your tax dollars going? To the King family, into developers pockets, and who knows where else. Kansas City is so corrupt it's sickening. BUT YOU PEOPLE VOTED FOR IT ALL! SO SUCK IT UP AND EAT YOUR BULK FLYERS! STUPID SHEEP!

He's virginal so he passive aggressively posts some lame comment followed by "weird" and acts like it's a valid argument

That said, it's too bad KCMO is jacking up the property taxes on residential and commercial when we already have a border war where each side poaches from the other and there's no real new blood. The streets are full of pot holes, the schools are Beirut-tier, and crimes so bad that people are getting run over at bus stops. With property taxes at JOCO levels now it encourages residents and business owners to head one mile west.

Weird, right?

12:16, if you think the Plaza still offers terrific shopping, you need to broaden your horizons.
