Kansas City Greater Downtown Area Plan OR How City Hall Plans To Destroy Every Neighborhood Near The Loop



They call it GDAP and it's basically a stack of paper nobody will read EXCEPT for condo developers and people building a litany of sketchy projects packed on top of one another . . .

The plan is simple . . . DENSITY ÜBER ALLES!!!

More deets about how this works and the plan Council passed this week:

"Area plans provide both proactive strategies (action steps which are outcome driven) and reactive guidelines (evaluation tools to guide future decision making). These plans are used by the City and the community alike and become an element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan."

From people much smarter than TKC:

AN OVERLAY MIGHT BE THE ONLY HOPE OF THE WESTSIDE AND CROSSROADS TO AVOID SPECULATOR CONQUEST!!!

Meanwhile, the only thing we've really seen that's effective in stalling irrationally exuberant builders is a recession that looks like it's on the way and already impacting the fragile local real estate market.
