FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Nov. 03, 2011

City approves acquisition of property associated with KCIR

The City of Kansas City Mo. has passed an ordinance authorizing funding to acquire a land parcel associated with KCIR, a racetrack, with the intent of developing the parcel as park land.The ordinance was passed following several months of open negotiations between the racetrack owner and the City.

As mandated by Missouri law when the City acquires property, the City has issued a notice that outlines the property owner’s rights.While the wording of this legal notice may leave readers with the impression the sale was mandated, the City is noting that the acquisition that was authorized by ordinance represents a voluntary agreement that is mutually beneficial to both the seller and the City.

As the property is acquired and developed into parkland, residents in the surrounding community will receive the benefits associated with parkland for generations to come.

Media seeking more information about this matter should contact Dennis Gagnon, public information officer, at 816-513-2659.
