Mayor slams Planned Industrial Expansion Authority’s failure to endorse Advance KC reform plan

Mayor Sly James criticized the board for failing to join other agencies in endorsing his plan to overhaul how the city runs its economic development programs. Also at the meeting, the agency’s board approved a 20-year property tax abatement to help redevelop the historic Globe Building at 1712 Main St. in the Crossroads Arts District. The $6.8 million project would convert the seven-story vacant building into loft office space.
