COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 980709

 

Calling upon the Mayor to establish a task force to conduct a comprehensive review of Kansas Citys codes and regulations affecting residential areas within the City.

 

WHEREAS, the protection of property values and the preservation of the housing stock are key goals of the Citys ordinances regulating residential areas within the City; and

 

WHEREAS, outdated and archaic legislation presents itself as a clear obstacle to the creation, development and preservation of safe and prosperous neighborhoods; and

 

WHEREAS, one of the main functions of City government is the constant search for efficient and effective legislation that can respond quickly but responsibly to evolving trends and needs in residential areas; and

 

WHEREAS, City codes must be studied with the intent to avoid the dangers of stagnation and to ignite revitalization efforts to improve the standard of living of all Kansas City residents; and

 

WHEREAS, consideration of a systematic revision of pertinent City codes demands a conscientious and meticulous effort by responsible individuals entrusted by the Citys leaders; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor is called upon to create a task force to conduct a comprehensive review of existing City codes and regulations that have an effect on the quality of residential areas within the City, including but not limited to, building and property maintenance codes, historic landmarks and districts, regulations of the municipal court fund program and the municipal housing court; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the task force shall include among its members representatives from neighborhood associations that can accurately advocate citizen concerns.
