Letter to the Editor about the Winchester TIF

There is also another component to this plan that has not been fulfilled.  In order to qualify for TIF status there was a process that declared this neighborhood blighted.  We became the “but for” argument to get the TIF project.  Here it is 20 plus years later and nothing has been done to re-mediate the blight and then they went so far as to use our neighborhood again to gain the blighted status so that they could use the TIF funding in an area that was never included or paid any taxes to this TIF fund. 

The residents have been paying into this TIF tax also and have had to endure traffic from several huge companies with over 3000 parking spots, including the helicopter from Channel 9 news overhead.  Bennington Ave. is a highly traveled road in and out of this complex with Raytown school buses traveling on a inadequate road even by anyone’s standards.  On the crest of the hill before 66th St. the hill is quite steep, only 16 feet wide and has 3 1/2 foot drop-offs on each side.  Only one vehicle can get through on this road at a time and it will only be a matter of time before a terrific accident happens hopefully not with a school bus full of children. 

The streets are in deplorable condition and we were promised sewer lines and other infrastructural improvements and then told it would be too much to impliment these improvements and yet there seems to be more than enough to divert the funding to the park for soccer improvements.  We would like the TIF commission, the city of Kansas City and all the other entities involved to keep their promises to us and fix the infrastructure that will benefit everyone.
