Community reaction was mixed on a request from the potential redeveloper of Westport High School to allow parking on the track and field area.

At city hall, people angry about police using pepper spray at a Donald Trump protest addressed a council committee.

With the downtown streetcar set to start running in May, the Kansas City Are Transportation Authority is expanding late-night service on the Troost and Main Street MAX and 47-Broadway bus routes.

Our Monday history feature looked back in time at a block of Manheim Park, from 39th to 40th between Troost and Forest.

And newer residents of that neighborhood celebrated “the Grandmothers of Manheim” with a mural at 39th and Troost.
