Kansas City Residents Outraged After Homeless Bussed To Penn Valley Park!!!

The Mayor's mishandling of the Kansas City homeless crisis has angered Midtown, Westside and his new neighbors in Coleman Highlands. 

Here's just one bit of feedback sent our way . . . 

"Why bus them to Penn Valley Park? Why not move them to Loose Park? Or better yet, put the camp in the Mayor's council district of Swope Park where there are camping facilities and enough room that they wouldn't bother anyone???

Description . . .

Since the wintertime, folks have been bussed to a new location about every three months with more people getting lost each time. The pressing question now is what comes next to get people stabilized.

Lotus staff plans to be at the Central Library on Tuesday and Thursday for the next month providing ongoing case management and coordination for the hotel participants and anyone who needs it.
