No new news for nerds on a development board maybe.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

That was my fear, but you need to live in the district, which eliminates both. DeJanes will have a candidate, I'm sure.

Re: Yet More New Hosting

Was it just me or has the forum been down for a couple of days? I blamed Trump and/or bahua's birthday.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I would not use the term philanthropic lest you be accused of stealing funds from more altruistic causes.

I can't see private investment coming close to the match. KC has no big hitters committed to urbanism.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

So when does the city have to get involved? Does the city apply for federal funding?

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I know first-hand and second-hand of four people who thought that Q1 was FOR the expansion of the streetcar. They didn't understand that the current line and expansion were possible because of the TDD voting and thought that Q1 meant they were voting for residents to continue to vote for expansions...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The anti faction has done a good job of claiming that a city wide vote is more fair and less gerrymandered.

Geography will always be the enemy. KC is just too freaking big.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

That is the whole point of Q1. They don't like the TDD because it wins.

I suspect it will be deemed unconstitutional or something by council and not affect much except for bad press. I hope.

Feel a little better. I was surprised how many otherwise progressive folks seemed to think Q1 was "Pro-transit".

Re: Crossroads needs greenspace

You're over-reacting a bit. Just pointing out one reason why KC doesn't have many/any of these. It only recently began experimenting with road diets and traffic calming measures with much more needed.

Re: Crossroads needs greenspace

I agree with Chuck, these don't work by speeding streets. The Minskys on SW Blvd is an extreme example. I would never sit outside there.

There are plenty of spaces downtown that would work, but still too many speedways through town. They need to calm the streets first.
