It seems like these days all the City of Kalamazoo wants to do is frustrate its citizens. And to be fair, no matter what they do, they'll be honking off some group of people or another. The most recent example of this is the project going on now on Park and Westnedge Streets around downtown. The City calls it "traffic calming".
Here it is, the start of fall. If you're a homeowner, you know that things collect and pile up. You don't even need to be a packrat, things just do. And the City of Kalamazoo is going to try and help at least a few of you the first weekend of October.
Yes, you hear the promise of lower property taxes and you roll your eyes. But when the amount of money promised to the Kalamazoo's Foundation For Excellence is $400 Million Dollars, then maybe it's not so pie in the sky as we might believe.
