Public sharply divided on future of KC's Kemper Arena

About 80 people turned out Monday night for a public hearing on Kemper Arena’s future, and speakers aired sharply divergent opinions. American Royal supporters said the city should demolish Kemper to provide for a custom-designed center and plenty of space for exhibitors and the American Royal barbecue. Opponents said it would be a travesty to tear down Kemper Arena, and the city should instead repurpose it for youth sports.
