RESOLUTION NO. 120601
the City Manager to inventory billboards in the City and begin enforcement
action; seek out assistance of citizens and neighborhoods groups; and report
back to the Council on these efforts within 90 days.
WHEREAS, many billboards throughout Kansas City are
no longer actively leased and have deteriorated; and
such billboards blight our neighborhoods and commercial areas; and
the City does not currently have an adequate inventory of these billboards and
their condition; and
because of staffing reductions, the City has very limited staff available for
enforcement of zoning restrictions; and
the City’s citizens and neighborhoods organizations may have the interest and
availability to aid the City in its enforcement efforts; NOW, THEREFORE,
IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
1. That the City Manager is directed (to the extent possible with the City’s
limited enforcement staff) to inventory the billboards in the City and the
condition of those billboards, begin enforcement action as appropriate, and
report back to the Council on these efforts within 90 days.
2. That the City Manager is directed to seek out the assistance of interested
citizens and neighborhood groups in this effort.
