Fairway planners to review new home approval process

FAIRWAY, Kan. - Like many communities around the Kansas City metro, Fairway residents are seeing more homes torn down and rebuilt. "I don't really have any problem with it," said Scott Patterson, who lives across the street from a home currently under construction.

These sub par pieces of shit are popping up everywhere now.

Just drove through PV and Fairway this week and I'm not sure what the complaints are. 99% of these rebuildings/new builds are great additions to their neighbhorhoods. They are quality built and designed homes that have character and don't overwhelm the neighborhood. They also revitalize otherwise declining neighborhoods with young families - economic diversity (yeah - a $200k house next to a $1,000,000+ house is diversity that doesn't happen in many areas), and a lot of jobs/businesses in the area. If I were a neighbor, my only complaint would be my house value keeps going up along with property taxes.

^^^And that would be helpful if you have no intention of moving... how?

Some neighbors are okay with the size of their dick while others hate to see someone move into the neighborhood showing off how big theirs is. Most Northeast Golden Ghetto residents have huge ass egos and love flaunting them. Those building the homes are those who want to live in Mission Hills but can't afford that so they move as close to it as they can by building a huge ass home they really can't afford either. I have had to go to court twice now to get final payment for work done on those style homes. They want you to think they have the dough but in all truth they don't.

8:56 I think the sentiment of people I know that have been doing rebuild/tear downs in NE JoCo has been they want to be more subtle. Instead of building a 6,000 sq ft. home out south, they'd like to fit nicely into a regular neighborhood. Do they want to live in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath ranch built in the 1950's? No family of 4 wants to do that anymore if the can avoid it. They want the 3,000 sq. ft. home with some character, big trees, and proximity to the Plaza/downtown/PV shops. location location location. There are a couple of exceptions but PV and Fairway are being improved upon - not destroyed. The dick swinging gang is out South.

It's funny to see these giant houses going up on teensy lots. Either bulldoze the entire block and start over, or encourage the giants to move to a golf course. Have you also noticed that every new development has the same boring houses? Check out a real estate website and you'll see what I mean. Can't tell one development from the next. Yawn....
