City agency slapped for trying to cheese neighborhood group

It’s not hard to find an unused school building in Kansas City. Yet the fight for possession of one empty schoolhouse reached the Missouri Court of Appeals.

The court recently ruled in favor of the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council, which wants to turn the old Horace Mann School near 39th and Garfield into senior housing. Upholding the decision of Jackson County Judge Justine Del Muro, the Court of Appeals said a city agency failed to act in good faith with the neighborhood group.
