Designating Lincoln High School, generally located on the east side of Woodland Avenue between the Kansas City Terminal Railway and East 22nd Street (2111 Woodland Avenue), a historic landmark; and directing the Director of the Department of City Development to record said designation.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA"
Tim Parks, City Planning and Development Department, testified on behalf of this report. A powerpoint presentation was given. The purpose of this ordinance is to designate Lincoln High School, located at 2111 Woodland Avenue, a historic landmark on the Kansas City Register of Historic Places. Mr. Parks also stated that is was the opinion of the City's Law Department that City Council cannot pass an ordinance designating buildings that are property of the school district as a local historic landmark in that it violates the Missouri Constitution. The Landmarks Commission stated that its role in the designation process was to recommend to the City Plan Commission and City Council whether the property meets the criterion for inclusion in the local register and that the constitutional issues are outside the Commission's purview. Brad Wolf, Landmarks Commission, stated that Lincoln High School was built by Charles A. Smith, who was the state architect for the school district from 1899 to 1936. Many structures built by Charles A. Smith have already been nominated to various registers both nationally and local. Mr. Wolf also stated that many distinguished local leaders and legends attended Lincoln High School. The Landmarks Commission recommended designation as a historic place based on the history and architecture as well as the fact that it significantly embodies the evolution of the public education system for African American students in Kansas City. Reginald C. Taylor, Lincoln Alumni National, presented a handout to the committee. A copy of the handout is on file in the City Clerk's Office. Anita Russell, NAACP, testified in support of the ordinance. Kay Postema, School Advisory Committee Member, testified in support of the ordinance. Margaret Thompson, Lincoln Alumni National, testified in support of the ordinance. There were several constituents in the audience that also supported the ordinance but were unable to testify. The committee recommended that the ordinance be held one week to discuss legal matters.
