At city hall, neighborhood residents showed up to oppose a proposed zoning variance for a pay day loan business.

The city council declined to designate three Plaza Buildings as historic, which means they could be demolished to make way for new development.

The same council committee heard a new plan that could save three buildings on Armour Boulevard that are boarded up and threatened with demolition.

A plan is being shaped to redevelop all four corners of Armour and Troost and create a bridge between east and west Kansas City.

A nonprofit in the 31st Street caves has become a hub for local folks who need grooming supplies like shampoo and deodorant, pantries that can distribute them, and Kansas City area businesses who can supply goods and volunteers.

Our Monday history feature went back in time on the 4900 blocks of Wornall and Central, an area south of the Plaza where homes have been replaced by a luxury community.
