Letter to the editor from Ward I Alderman Joe Creamer

A couple of years ago I began to see some need for regulation in the rental community, I began to push for an ordinance that would help us gain control of the situation. In the study of this I was able to see other needs and from this stemmed the Dangerous Building Ordinance that enabled us to deal with some buildings that were in severely deteriorated condition. Also, from the rental idead came the Vacant and Abandoned building Ordinance to deal with foreclosure problems in the community.

 The reason for the strong push in theses areas was the declining property values in our community, this is not just a Raytown problem, this is happening everywhere. I believe there are many factors that go into this problem and they need to be addressed one brick at a time. I think my favorite quote is “You cant change anything if You don’t change anything”. The City has come to a point where we need to recognize that the way things were done in the past are not always the solutions for today or for the future.

That is why I feel so passionate about preserving our community. The fact is, we need to take a common sense approach to how we address the situation. I believe that if we work as a team between the BOA, the Staff and the community we can come to a solution that will benefit Raytown. The thing I want to point out is this is not an attack on anyone, this is about neighborhood preservation. There are many communities around the country that have adopted Rental Regulation and have made it work. We as a community need to work something out that will benefit the home owners, the landlords as well as the tenants.

I grew up in this town and want the best for it but I believe there needs to be a balance in everything. I still say I want to be able to drive down any street and not be able to tell the difference between a owner occupied property, a rental property or a vacant property.
