Kansas City, like the rest of the nation, awaited the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin. The Kansas City police chief and the mayor both urged Kansas City to react calmly to whatever verdict was reached.

In city issues, the Citizens Association held a debate around the various options for the future of Kansas City International Airport, showing how complex the issue is.

Meantime, the charter review commission heard arguments for making sweeping changes to the way council members are elected.

The bus system began switching its fleet over to natural gas power.

Our profiles of endangered properties continued with a look at the Hawthorn Plaza Apartments on Main Street. We also learned about a house designed by an important Kansas City architect that has fallen into disrepair.

At the Midtown KC Post, we added a section of neighborhood profiles making it easier for people moving to Kansas City or interested in getting more involved to learn about their neighborhoods.
