Battle between Westside and KCP&L goes to round two
Last year, Westside residents were surprised to learn that Kansas City Power and Light had plans for a new power substation in their collective backyard. Even worse, by the time they were invited to the table, all they got was a one-way conversation from KCP&L dictating where the company had decided to plunk down its transformers.
Irritated by the lack of involvement, community activists rebuffed KCP&L’s offers for further meetings. But they didn’t go away. Yesterday, they showed up at City Hall to suggest their neighborhood already bears more than its fair share of the city’s unpleasant infrastructure.
