Shopping in KC-MO's Third District
By Maria Carter
Kansas City, MO – In March, UMKC urban planning professor Robyne Turner helped launch Viable Third. It's a project in which she and co-founder Airick Leonard West pledged, for one year, to do all their shopping exclusively in Kansas City's Third Council District. The idea is to draw attention what's already there and what the third district is lacking. KCUR's Maria Carter recently went along with Turner on some errands, looking for a kitchen faucet, power tools, and a good meal.
