ORDINANCE NO. 140406

 

Amending the designation of the Quality Hill West Historic District by revising the boundaries and composition and renaming it the Quality Hill Thematic District.

 

WHEREAS, the City designated the Quality Hill West Historic District (”District”) on February 21, 1986 through Ordinance No. 58925; and

 

WHEREAS, that the District was an identifiable concentration of primarily residential properties that by the date, style and density best conveyed the original character of this early Kansas City neighborhood; and

 

WHEREAS, the District originally included 44 structures which were constructed between 1856 and 1919 and which was a fashionable neighborhood developed by distinguished citizens such as Kersey Coates, who originally came to Kansas City from the east and played a major role in the early industrial, political and social life of the City; and

WHEREAS, several properties within the original District have been demolished and the District that was originally designated no longer retains distinctive streetscapes or blocks that have a cohesive historic character that would constitute a contiguous historic district; and

 

WHEREAS, the District’s designation and boundaries will be revised and renamed to remove some of the parcels that no longer possess historic characteristics; and

 

WHEREAS, the following buildings will remain within the designation as part of the revised district to be known as the “Quality Hill Thematic District:”

and

 

WHEREAS, the Historic Preservation Commission unanimously recommended approval of the “Quality Hill Thematic District”; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Plan Commission unanimously recommended approval of the “Quality Hill Thematic District”; and

 

WHEREAS, Chapter 88-580-01-E of the Administrative Code of the City of Kansas City, Missouri requires Council, after receiving the recommendations of the Historic Preservation Commission and the City Plan Commission, to take final action on the historic district designation; NOW, THEREFORE,
