Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Has it been stated anywhere what the operational difference of shared center-running vs a dedicated lane from 30th to Cleaver? While seeing shared travel makes me apprehensive, after further thought I'm not sure how much is gained by giving a dedicated lane vs shared center through there. If anythin...

Re: Capping the Loop

No. I'm approaching this from a different perspective than you. You are trying to see how a private company can maximize their investment by taking advantage of contract language and leveraging future projects. Thats fine.

Re: Capping the Loop

Here is what i don't understand. People say, why not let the city fund the garages in exchange for cordish paying for the cap or some portion of the cap. Even if the new, lower estimate is correct, the cap costs $140 million. How much of that is Cordish will to pay for? $1million? That gets us nowh...

Re: Capping the Loop

It sounds like cordish knows that they're going to have to find a significant part of this. I'm both thankful and nervous at the same time. How do you reach the conclusion that Cordish will contribute anything to this? they are not even funding parking garages physically attached their buildings. T...

Re: Three Light

And I think you're also implying that the designated affordable units shouldn't be as nice as the market rate apartments. That's just messed up. Why is lower cost finishes messed up? That's how plenty of affordable units are done. I'd agree that it'd be wrong if there was systemic avoidance of main...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I was just at the original Joe's last night, country music was blasting out the door. So it's definitely within their brand.

Plus per cityscene, it's a mix of music styles with blues and classic rock thrown in.

Re: Three Light

I would hope they'd choose the Jackson County Jail site and kill two birds with one stone. You could build parking over 670 and it's a short walk to P&L which I'd think would appeal to Cordish.

Re: Six Light

5 Light has to go on the block bounded by Wyandotte, 14th & Baltimore. Right? That location would allow for a continual front to the new capped loop. If you're funding that B.F.D., you want to max out your views of it. Site is controlled by DST and KCP&L today. Wasn't this mentioned as a po...

Re: Making public transit free

The ONLY other jurisdiction increasing their funding for transit is Johnson County, and that's only because voters authorized a levy increase specifically for that (coupled with parks and libraries). We are doing piecemeal today, why continue trying to grow that when the regional investment is inev...

I think that's unfairly harsh to Lenexa. This would never fly in City Center. :lol:

Re: Proctor & Gamble will close KCK plant

How can you see a Lumber Yard because all I see is something in back parking lot that doesn't look the size of Menards Lumber Yard. We need a Kmart replacement and Shopko and Meijer would do it and are good so it's Albertsons that would do good in Johnson County or KCK. Supermarkets don't have auxi...
