Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

According to zip code data, estimates show DT saw increase of 2500 people over the past year and Midtown-Plaza saw increase of 1300 people.

Same data also shows DT and Midtown rebounding from job losses over previous years.

PIEA recommends approval of incentives for three light. It now only needs the full council's approval.

Re: Bike Lanes

Drove paseo this week and imagined how cool a bike track would be ...be like a bike superhighway to anywhere I would ever want to go on a bike. This is actually an awesome idea. At least, the kind of thinking that I'd like to see applied to the east side. Paseo is beautiful, wide enough that you co...

Re: Bike Lanes

When I drove by yesterday there was only the outline of the parking spots. They still need to add a door buffer on the curbside. As it is now, cars park all the way to the lines closest to the curbs and this makes it narrow for bikes. The buffers should help prevent that. Also, green paint and inter...

Re: Bike Lanes

Armour bike lanes are being installed starting today. If you haven't been on this stretch lately, the lane striping appears to be finished - parking 'bubbles' have been striped and bike lanes on each lane better parking and curbs. Between this and the work MAC did on the apartments, these few block...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

Here is their conclusion. The Project, as presented by the Developer and described above, appears to require public assistance to be financially feasible. The need for assistance appears to be driven by high redevelopment costs associated with the Hotel Component and the relatively low potential rev...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

I thought Epoch bought the KC Club, but on the agenda it says the applicant is MFH Properties, LLC. I believe that was the previous owners, so I guess the sale didn't go through? Also, the garage and office are to be in the same structure at the NE corner of 13th and Wyandotte. More info here: http...

I think the Honduran spot at 13th and Central either used to or still does have a location on Independence Ave. I really like that spot.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Something that is interesting in reviewing those documents. Westport (which is the small, heart of westport-not the broader westport) takes in 500,000 in annual revenue from a 1/2 sales tax. While the city was discussing adding another CID to PnL, they said that a 1 cent sales tax can pull approx. $...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

There are two Westport CIDs. One is a property assessment and one is a 1/2 cent sales tax. You can review their proposed budgets here: http://cityclerk.kcmo.org/LiveWeb/Documents/Document.aspx?q=N2h9tYDzsP7s96TkuySosxwrLFhaWcjauvaZn4xGCcgvD8PKE%2bHcLBgCTzm4eK8N http://cityclerk.kcmo.org/LiveWeb/Docu...
