^ Yeah, Glenn is probably my least favorite candidate. I’d take most anyone over him. Soooo, he’ll probably win. :(
I’d be surprised if he did.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I was in LA this week and noticed that their center running light rail allows for left turns.

Re: The Official Kansas City Weather Thread

KCMO is also a lot more spread out than all of the suburbs. JoCo is very compact and in a simple grid making for multiple passes very easy. I find it shocking from the furthest point north to furthest south is like 50 some miles. Not many major cities are that long. Maybe LA but that's about it Sor...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Is anyone else not a fan of this design? It feels very car centric.

I agree with TLG, putting some new market stalls or buildings there would be a better option.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Miller has made no real stands on most issues. Most of what we know about him stems from his time at MODOT, where he continued the highway agenda. He also seems to support Hyperloop as a real transit option for the state. I would say more highways and Hyperloop are both failures and distractions fro...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Miller is using Axiom strategies - the same consultant behind Sam Graves, iirc Kevin Yoder, Ted Cruz for President, etc. They are a very experienced (but expensive) group. If he can bring in money , which he has, then they can push him into the top 2/3.

I don't consider any of those truly divisive.
On the surface no. However, I am willing to bet you 3 Guy Fieri tacos that one of those issues will get blown out of proportion.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

You are absolutely right. Their attitude towards constituents can cause a loss by just a few votes. They often don't realize this. Long-serving politician staffs say that their candidate often keeps winning (even where their party might be outnumbered) because they are excellent at dealing with con...

Why is the flight to Toronto so late in the day though? It doesn’t arrive until 8PM which makes it irrevalant as a stopover to European destinations.
AC just added a fourth daily flight to STL. It would be interesting to see if that route is O/D or connecting.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Also, Cascone's is calling it quits after 90 years. On Facebook, they're blaming the streetcar. :roll:
I had never tried going until the streetcar opened. The few times I have tried going , they have been closed. Was it any good?

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

I'm surprised Air Canada doesn't run more of the Express or Rogue flights seasonally to some of the other hubs to mid tier cities like Kansas City. Would be kind of nice to see an Air Canada Express nonstop to Vancouver or Montreal They MX base does a ton of work for AC, so it could make sense to r...

Just a tenant to give Sprint Center another 50 dates of crowds with a perfect demographic for the P&L district during the slowest time of year for downtown when the area has few visitors during the winter months.
