Because they're all pandering, posturing politicians.

Redistricting

http://northeastnews.net/pages/kcmo-red ... boundaries
In 1966, when Ilus Davis was the mayor of Kansas City, there were 79,000 residents per council district. Council districts were redrawn in 1968 to keep the districts even, and again in 1970, this time with a population of 85,000 per district.

Fun math 8n that article.

To reach 84500 per
the 1st needs to lose 7775
The 4th 5880
The 2nd 4510

= 18165, or 20% of a district.

So the northland is hovering around 2.4-2.5 districts. Depends on the growth in the 4th north of the river

You wanted context. An elected official poking someone is still a bad look an assault charge is even worse.

Watching the redistricting committee. So, is there a good chance that the city will have 5 suburban council districts and only 1 urban?

Downtown, midtown and the plaza-westport is the ubran core. Everything else is suburbs. They're very old suburbs but they were called Streetcar Suburbs for a reason.

In 2010 the city had 0.5 urban and 6.5 suburban districts. the 4th was basically those three neighborhoods, Historic NE suburbs and northland suburbs
It's going to stay 0.5 urban seats because downtown and midtown grew while the east side shrunk but not faster than the northland did.

The city is on it's way to being 3 districts to the north, without redoing the council district makeup the city council will grow whiter and more suburban with time. It was the council opening up Second Creek that made it inevitable. When developers start putting homes en mass there in we could see 10,000 people added every few years to the city. It's not unlikely KCMO is well past 550k in 2030 with 275k in the northland and 50k downtown.
