RESOLUTION NO. 940451

 

Directing the City Manager to investigate the regulation and location of pawnshops in the City and to recommend any necessary changes.

 

WHEREAS, there is a concern that the proliferation of pawnshops poses a great threat to vital and stable neighborhoods; and

 

WHEREAS, there is a concern that pawnshops contribute to the area crime rate; and

 

WHEREAS, the City currently regulates pawnbrokers through licensing requirements in accordance with Chapter 27 of the Code of General Ordinances; and

 

WHEREAS, pawnshops are currently first allowed to locate in any area zoned District C-2 (Local Retail Business) without any specific locational and spacing requirements; and

 

WHEREAS, since pawnshops may have a deleterious effect on their neighbors, the Council desires that the City Manager conduct a full evaluation and investigation of the regulation of pawnshops in the City to determine appropriate regulations which may be imposed so as to protect the City's most important resources, the neighborhoods; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby direct the City Manager to investigate and evaluate the regulation and location of pawnshops in the City and to act expeditiously in recommending any necessary changes in order to protect the City's vital and stable neighborhoods.
