Councilwoman Cindy Circo on Neighborhood Conditions

By Sylvia Maria Gross


Kansas City, MO – A new study shows that housing conditions have improved a little in 11 of Kansas City Missouri's central neighborhoods since 2000. During the same time period, curbs and sidewalks in those neighborhoods have deteriorated. That's according to a survey by UMKC's Center for Economic Information. It was presented to the city council's Public Safety and Neighborhoods Committee. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross asked committee member Cindy Circo for a reaction. Councilwoman Circo represents some of the neighborhoods surveyed in the fifth district.
