Armour Boulevard And Ethical Issues Surrounding Low-Income Housing

Controversy has swirled around the Bainbridge apartment complex on Armour Boulevard for years. A legal back-and-forth has accompanied the city's designation of the property as socially blighted.

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
