Winchester TIF update

A deal has been cut that will extend the Winchester TIF for another 10 year to build more soccer fields at 63rd St. and Hardesty Ave. Kansas City Mo. and Jackson County will donate what funds are in the TIF and their share for the next 10 years to add 7 more fields to the existing 3 fields and expand the field used by Sporting KC. Bathroom facilities, bleachers and lighting are also to be added.  The Jackson County Legislature has approved the plan and the Kansas City Mo. will consider it on March 21st.

The plan has provisions for upgrading Bennet Rd. and upgrading residential septic tank systems.  This falls short of what the Swope Ridge Neighborhood group felt they were promised over 20 years ago.

Readers are encouraged to make up their own minds on this matter of whether $900,000 improvements to Bennet Road and another $600,000 in other improvements equals what was promised to happen in the original agreement. To adjust for inflation you may click HERE to use  the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator. $1,500,000.00 in 1991 would equal $2,536,123.35 in today’s dollars.
