What a shame!I lived in Grandview for years-going to Belvidere Elementary and then to junior high.Even when I left Grandview and moved to Raymore,I still did alot of running around and shopping in Grandview.Guess that Grandview only lives in my dreams and in my past.

Lived in Grandview 63-65. It was great then. Actually lived in Kernoodles(?) park I think it was called, rural, lake, very nice. There was a Vi and Jims bar & grill and seems like a new shopping center built about that time. Guess it would not be the same after all these years.

I've lived in Grandview four years now. While it is true there is not a whole lot to do there as far as shopping and entertainment goes, I have seen growth in new, small businesses. There are still some very nice neighborhoods (one of which I happen to live in). I think it will continue to renew itself. I'm excited to see what the future holds for good ol' Grandview.
