The editorial reply here fascinates me.
"The interests of the black community and Kansas City, for good jobs, tax revenues, and economic development would be better served by reopening the main mall now, and by investing time in getting the state permission to build a casino in the future. The mall has only been closed for four months. Kansas City should allow more time for other ideas and proposals to emerge."
Wait, what? A casino? Is this guy crazy? LOL
Bannister mall is dead and it is not coming back. Sorry 6th district. You are doing it to yourself. People are ascaret to shop out there. I wonder why? It's so clean and friendly. Businesses are running away from this area like it's the 3rd or 5th districts.
