Meanwhile, for paywall subscribers, this bit of content offers an update revealing that the status quo remains intact with more TAXPAYER money forthcoming . . .

Plan to revive area near KC's Vine Street jazz district is clouded by accusations

Moses wandered the desert 40 years before reaching the promised land, and then God wouldn't let him in. Vewiser Dixon can relate. It's been four decades since the redevelopment corporation Dixon heads was created by the Black Economic Union of Greater Kansas City to revitalize the neighborhood south of Kansas City's jazz district.

ITs all true, Dixon is a con artist who gets by playing the race card, he took money, screwed people over and expects the city to hand him money for his scams that don’t produce. Nobody wants any part of his lyin crooked ways.

Tired of sending money to this area. $100 million and you can't even keep the exhibits in working order. Lazy. Most of the visitors are school groups who don't give a shit. But I guess the city council would probably be called racist if they don't bend over.

Only been there twice since they redid it in the '90s. Really no good places to eat. Nothing entertaining. Just two museums and a theatre that interest me. Honestly, if they turned the Gem into a grindhouse play old movies from back in the day I'd go.

The fact that a ridiculous "proposal" by a couple well-known grifters would even be presented to KCMO city hall shows why the reputation of the electeds as clueless, gutless, and easily-rolled is so very well-deserved.
The roster of self-defined make-believe urban core "developers" is very very long and the millions of taxpayer money that has disappeared into thin air is well-documented.
Heads-up for the gang at 12th and Oak:
Lucy pulls the football away at the end.
