KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Dan Edwards is the nervous one.
He's the 30-year-old who owns 38 brush-swarmed vacant lots in Kansas City's Wendell Phillips Neighborhood on the East Side, talking about big plans he knows some residents will fear, doubt or even attack, the Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/2rB3ESZ ) reported.
An idealistic millennial, he's the developer with the audacious plan to bring 1,000 "healthy families" into new homes in this long-distressed neighborhood over the next 10 years, starting with his family of three.
He grew up on the East Side, a Lincoln College Prep Grad.
