RESOLUTION NO. 010600

 

Expressing the opposition of the Council to the recently announced plan of Bannum, Inc., to locate a community corrections center at 103 West 19th Street and directing the City Clerk to forward copies of this Resolution to appropriate persons.

 

WHEREAS, Bannum, Inc., has recently written letters to the Mayor and Council informing them that it is submitting a proposal to the United States Department of Justice to operate a community corrections center at 103 West 19th Street, Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council is greatly concerned that the area surrounding 103 West 19th Street will be detrimentally affected by the location of a community corrections center at 103 West 19th Street; and

 

WHEREAS, 103 West 19th Street is located within the area of the City known as Crossroads and Crossroads has recently experienced successful redevelopments including Union Station, residential loft developments, the burgeoning Freight House District and also includes the proposed performing arts center; and

 

WHEREAS, the businesses and residential developments located within the Crossroads area are of vital importance to the City and it is imperative that the progress which has been made in stabilizing and redeveloping the Crossroads area will continue; and

 

WHEREAS, it appears from the description provided by Bannum that the community corrections center would require approval of a conditional use permit for a penal or detention facility by the board of zoning adjustment subject to certain conditions provided in Section 80-213 which the property at 103 West 19th Street does not meet; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that the establishment of a community corrections center at 103 West 19th Street is inconsistent and detrimental to the surrounding Crossroads area and will impede the tremendous progress which has been made in redeveloping the Crossroads area, its residential loft developments and businesses; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council desires that its serious concerns for the proposal at 103 West 19th Street be communicated to the United States Department of Justice; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby express their great opposition to the plan of Bannum, Inc., to locate a community corrections center at 103 West 19th Street, Kansas City, Missouri, because this corrections center would detrimentally affect the Crossroads area and its continuing redevelopment; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the City Clerk is hereby directed to forward copies of this Resolution to Bannum, Inc., and the United States Department of Justice.
