Over the last several years, Kansas City, Kansas has seen new life and revitalization come into its neighborhoods. But while these neighborhoods are cleaner, safer, and more beautiful, a new problem has moved in: rising property taxes. And these taxes are taking a toll on our most vulnerable community members, such as disabled and elderly residents.
Wyandotte County’s Unified Board of Commissioners recently approved a resolution that brings the proposed downtown “Healthy Campus” closer to reality.
The measure, approved with a 9-1 vote during the Commission’s November 30 meeting, allows the Unified Government to use up to $2 million to buy land at 10th Street and Minnesota Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas.
