Argentine Library and Supermarket Proceeding
Not available online
TitleArgentine Library and Supermarket Proceeding
AbstractArticle discusses the new Metropolitan Avenue Redevelopment District that stretches west from the 18th Street Expressway to S. 24th Street and north from Metropolitan Avenue to the railroad tracks. A grocery store and new public library will be built within this new district which is eligible for tax increment financing (TIF). The Argentine Library at 2800 Metropolitan Avenue is currently housed in the historic 94-year-old Carnegie building which is now "impractical and inadequate." The new library building was conditionally approved by the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools-Unified School District 500 "which governs the city's public libraries." Of the estimated $6 million needed, the community must raise $2 million of that amount. "The new 21,000-square-foot, one-story library will be fully accessible to all patrons," and will be located on Strong Avenue between 31st and 32nd streets.
