KC Stadium Vote is Next Week, Haters Sharpening Swords
Even through the obstacles, the Kansas City Wizards roll Jesse Jackson style and try to "keep hope alive' about finding themselves a permanent home. Next week the city council votes on the issue of knocking down Bannister Mall and replacing it with a gargantuan1.1 million square foot redevelopment plan that will include an 18K seat soccer stadium, practice fields, housing and retail.
KCTV has some video on the issue and believe it or not there are actually folks out there who don't want the city to do away with an abandoned shopping complex and replace it with a tax-free economic catalyst. I can tell you that you can watch the video here. What I can't tell you is the mailing address of the hater who wants to give the mall "to the people".
