Letters: Blame city for grocery closing

March 3, 2011

To the editor:

Don’t cry about lost sales tax for the city of Basehor! It’s the fault of city officials who for some reason want a very expensive roadway to be built between 155th and 158th streets.

Who owns the property along this stretch of land? Why wasn’t the new road cut through for the new grocery store that we here in Basehor had waited for for so long?

It is a disgrace that a very nice grocery was built and yet you did not give adequate access to it from State Avenue and 150th Street. I can’t help but think there were some politics involved. The new grocery was not going to harm the business at Casey’s, either.
