Kansas City Council approves billboard condemnation for Crossroads hotel plan

The proposed 110-room Hilton Home2 Suites would occupy the southeast corner of 20th and Main streets, but before it can proceed, a billboard owned by Lamar Advertising has to be removed. The pole sign also has been protected by a “perpetual” visual easement that says nothing can obstruct its view. The council unanimously designated the sign as blighted, beginning the condemnation process.
