Kansas City FAILED 18th & Vine Jazz District Demands More Cash Today
Here's the jazz district argument for more money in the midst of a global pandemic economic crisis . . .
"How do we create economic parity in this city how do we drive economic development? 18th and Vine is a mechanism to do that for access to jobs and addressing some of the root causes of issues in our community through economics and this is a place where we can do that. This has historically been disinvested in," Third District Councilwoman Melissa Robinson said.
Sadly, Council Lady Robinson must've overlooked $100-MILLION invested in the district since the 90s.
