The Kansas City park board on Tuesday approved Swope Park land for a new animal shelter. Animal lovers say it’s needed to replace an antiquated facility on Raytown Road. At an event last week promoting the proposal, Kansas City Councilwoman Teresa Loar gave some extra attention to Lambykins, a year-old beagle.

Yet the shopping district’s 26 properties are now on the tax rolls at $145 million. The owner, Country Club Plaza JV LLC, won its protest of the higher value by claiming the increase was unfair because the values of neighboring properties went up by lower percentages in the 2017 countywide reassessment.
