What Will Happen To The Kemper Arena?
The fate of Kemper Arena is being disputed by two Kansas City parties. The American Royal would like to demolish it, as proposed in October 2011, to create room for a smaller agricultural and multipurpose center. Foutch Brothers, a Kansas City development firm, is fighting to preserve it.
On today's Central Standard, we discuss the arguments on both sides of the issue and the potential results of each plan.
