Declaring the area generally bounded by Benton Boulevard on the west, Indiana Avenue on the east, 19th Street on the north and 21st Street on the south a blighted and insanitary area in need of redevelopment and rehabilitation pursuant to the Missouri Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority law.

 

WHEREAS, Section 99.430, Revised Statutes of Missouri, 1986, as amended ("RSMo"), provides that an urban renewal plan may be prepared subject to the declaration that the area is blighted or insanitary and in need of redevelopment and rehabilitation; and

 

WHEREAS, it is desirable and in the public interest that the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, undertake an urban renewal plan for an area generally bounded by Benton Boulevard, Indiana Avenue, 19th Street and 21st Street to be known as the Kansas Avenue Urban Renewal Project Area; and

 

WHEREAS, said area is blighted due to insanitary or unsafe conditions, deterioration of site improvements, and the existence of conditions which endanger life or property by fire or other causes, which retards the provision of housing accommodations or constitutes an economic or social liability or a menace to the public health, safety, morals, or welfare in its present condition and use;

 

WHEREAS, the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, did on the 23rd day of October, 2002, adopt a resolution recommending that the area be declared blighted for the area generally bounded by Benton Boulevard on the west, Indiana Avenue on the east, 19th Street on the north and 21st Street on the south, said resolution being set forth and incorporated in the Urban Renewal Plan; NOW, THEREFORE,
