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

https://i.imgur.com/3nvPdtG.jpg Why does the city keep granting permits for this? Not only is it blocking the sidewalk, but it's also a hazard for those using the crosswalk since it blocks sightlines. (The Grand side is even worse...) Does the city really give permits for this? 311 got a little sna...

Re: Broadway

Here's public works newest invention- the reusable crosswalk timer! For use when those troublesome trucks keep knocking your expensive poles over. Simple fix- put a tire on the bottom to just role it back upright!

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Yes I know the long term plan. I don't know why that would at all influence this idea. It's quick to implement and can be reversed if it impacts anything negatively. Sorry. My thinking was that they would need to be closing the NB lane for construction while they are building the bike lane on to it...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

The hotel finally lost the loading zone in front of the apartments/Jimmy Johns on Grand! Now the zone is confined to the area directly in front of the main entrance.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

What's going on to the building at 1620(ish) Grand? Sidewalk is completely closed and excavated down to the basement foundation of the building. I'm betting they're the next project to not follow the sidewalk closing policy... https://cityscenekc.com/event-space-planned-for-longtime-eyesore-buildin...

Making a real mess of the 20th street sidewalk
I roll my eyes daily when they use the bobcat to clean the street, but conveniently do not do the bike lane or sidewalk.

10 spot out. Another concept in.

When will this place just give up?
They just installed a very fancy lighting system that I can see every night on the top floor... So I guess not anytime soon!
