By Paul Thompson
On this week’s episode of Kansas City’s Northeast Newscast, managing editor Paul Thompson sits down with Abby Judah of Legal Aid of Western Missouri to talk about urban homesteading – a process by which individuals are encouraged to live in and rebuild vacant properties with outstanding codes violations. Judah works with Northeast Kansas City neighborhood associations to identify blighted properties that could be a fit for the program.
In this conversation, Judah dives into the proverbial weeds to describe the process required to get these properties into the hands of individuals who can turn a property with open codes violations into a proper home.
