Free money for speculative projects is a wonderful thing . . . HOWEVER, what might be a "W-shaped" recovery leaves a great deal of financial uncertainty for City Hall.

KC resident hopes for 'citywide' development reform amid race discussions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For weeks, the Kansas City metro has seen protests calling for police reform and deep conversations on racial bias following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Some hope the conversations turns to action on other issues involving race, such as investing in Kansas City, Missouri's east side.

He uses the wrong word. "Investing" means spending money in expectation of a profit. There is no hope of a profit in what he wants. I don't know if there is a single word for "throwing money down the shithole," but that would be more appropriate.

So in other words, more free stuff for the takers while massively increasing taxes for the makers and property owners. Yea, this will work out really well.

Palmer suggested that also involves investment from the city, as there's more blight on the east side of Troost compared to the west side.

There’s murderous blacks east of troost and that’s why everything east of troost is a shithole.

Also, the city has spent billions of dollars since at least 1980 in the central core with programs that still exist today, free paint and minor home repair is a prime example, these people can get a free roof, furnace with a/c, all new plumbing, electrical and sewer lines and they can re-apply for any of these items every five years.

Some of these people have been abusing this program over and over again and they treat their houses like shit because they know the city will fix whatever they tear up. They take away from neighborhoods that truly struggle and they do try to maintain their properties but can’t get help because it’s not in their area. The central core is a giant suck of resources nobody else can get. The central core should be wiped off of the face of the earth.

It will be a long time before there is any money in the Kansas City coffer .AS long as Kansas City is A blue City. Only a few tourist and Conventions will arrive .A FEW if any Business will locate.The smaller conservative towns will get the Businesses.People will not visit or decided to move to K.C.Because of the Crime. And people in the Urban areas,Drive a few miles from the City Limits and Shop, at least the ones with extra money to spend. They will not shop on Prospect or Brooklyn .

The civic leaders would never admit it but their "economic development" plan involves pushing poor blacks into Grandview and Raytown and replacing them with white millennials looking for cheap housing.

This puts a bigger buffer between the development projects west of Troost all the while bemoaning J.C. Nichols deed restrictions.

The sad part is for a few dollars Freedom Inc is helping.

Tell the black people to get off of their lazy black asses and start the building on their own. They burned everything down they can rebuild it. Sick of these lazy ass trouble makers. Plus they don't allow white people in the east side. Remember black people what you do to them when they come into your piss marked area? Take it to your racist black mayor! Lets see what he will do for ya.

^^That's funny coming from a lazy-ass geriatric who does nothing but cry on a blog all day long. You've built nothing but a mess in your diaper Boomer. Get real!

The great shakedown of 2020 continues.

White guilt easily erased by writing a check to the people they still hate and feel guilty for hating them.

Nobody hates blacks more than white liberals - the're phonies to the highest degree.

Blacks are like spoiled children. They kick, scream, destroy things in a fit of anger every few years to get their way and some attention. After they tear up what was given to them they repeat the tantrum and get paid off again. F__k them.
