This Is The Way Troost Crumbles . . .

Low-income African-American community denizens are facing the same gentrification confronted by Midtown/Downtown denizens and in the coming weeks and months we'll enjoy the artistry of their complaints as they are forced to pack their bags like everybody else. Take a look:

Emotions mixed as Troost Ave. revitalization project begins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Troost Avenue corridor continues to change as several projects are underway in Kansas City, Missouri. The the KCMO City Council Planning and Zoning Committee recently gave the green light to incentives for Midtown Redevelopment Partners to develop the Shankman and Michelson buildings into retail space, offices and a future home home for the Midwest American Indian Museum.

OK this is hysterical. Your tax hike money is going to even more incentives to big developers, and they want to bring poor and wealthy together, well we all know what happens when you try to do that, in a bad area at that. That was the dumbest thing I have ever heard anyone say. That women who said that is stupid stupid stupid. After all would you want to eat dinner or shop next to geezer hater???

The "community" has been in charge of Troost for the last 50+ years and it's only continued to go to shit and pedestrians are getting run over at bus stops. Think it's time for a change

Troost - the road surface itself - is terrible. From eaat downtown to Hyde Park to midtown around this area all the way thru umkc/rochkhurst and out South to 85th. For cars and bikes it's 'hell on wheels'.

Who cares about white or black. What the Eastside needs is green. Money. Investments. City should not ignore infrastructure e.g. Troost roadbed.

I have spoken.
