Urban Ranger Corps Ribbon Cutting

Urban Rangers Founder Fr. John Wandless, City Councilwoman Cindy Circo, and Schloegel Design Remodel founder, Jake Schloegel, cut the ribbon on an Urban Rangers house. Schloegel Design Remodel helped in the renovation.

From Jake Schloegel:
“The city had declared this a “dangerous building” and it was scheduled for demolition. The Urban Rangers intervened and petitioned the Jackson County Circuit Court under the Missouri Abandoned Housing Act, to award control of the property to the Urban Rangers for the purpose of renovation.

“Instead of having another vacant lot in the urban core, the neighborhood now has a fully renovated home ready for a new home owner.”
