The city produced an interesting report on three Armour Boulevard properties redeveloped as lower income housing, finding they have increased crime so badly that the Armour corridor is socially blighted.

The historic Congress Building should be added to a tax abatement redevelopment area that includes the Knickerbocker Apartments, city staff said, raising questions about what is planned for the building.

We profiled Kelly Sapp, a police officer with the No Violence Alliance, trained in the villages of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Missouri Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal related to the downtown streetcar line, ending a legal challenge to the project.

The World War I Museum and Sporting KC Started what they hope will be a new tradition, a “Truce Day” local soccer tournament an English Premier League watch party.

And we reminded you how to recycle Christmas trees, and that its time to head up to Smithville Lake to watch the eagles.
