Bring in tons of money to tear down what is worthless and rebuild something nice? Not in our town says group near Bannister. There are reports from many places about a group trying to stop the Bannister Redevelopment. The KC Star recently wrote up an article on the issue. The basic idea is there are residents in the area trying to put a stop to the redevelopment because they think it is better for the community to try and reopen the mall and stores in the surrounding area than to redevelop it. Really it reminds of an old prank of Jimmy Kimmel’s where he convinced a bunch of women to walk around a public place promoting the ending of Women’s Suffrage. I’m guessing there is some influential man in the community playing the role of Kimmel and a bunch of unknowing others who are signing this petition. It does not worry me however for at this point it would be like campaigning to stopping plate tectonics. You can read their article by clicking on the link above.
