Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I'm gonna go with Dave on this, data driven real politik is the way to go in 2018.

The airport analogy doesn't work, there's a reason we didn't ask for gondolas up I-29 as part of the proposal.

You all need to focus your efforts on the future bi-state transit proposal.

Re: Politics

Yes, they hid the cages full of kids for 8 years despite gop congressional oversight for 6 of them. As phuqueue has already pointed out, there's no shortage of news stories about the way the Obama administration handled kids... 03/11/2015, Washington Post: Mexican kids held for months as punishment...

The economy is also (again) top heavy in its growth. No wage growth, big stock buy backs.

Re: River Market to Cliff Drive Bike Connection

Wow, that sounds cool!

I agree the CP entrance is a bit sketchy, would be nice to get some streetscaping out that direction to attract users.

Which hotel?

Re: Capping the Loop

The Brookside route also didn't score well which means less likely to get matching fed funds.

Re: 18th and Vine

We were down there for the Charlie Parker celebration last year with Chuck Haddix as he led a tour of the buildings in the area.

I deliberately did not stand in front of that brick wall.

Re: Capping the Loop

The plan isn't to cap the north loop, but eliminate it completely, hopefully with buried parking garages.

Truly capping the south loop, in the way that most think is too expensive, even with Cordsih. What would likely happen is some sort of sectional vented cap, not a tunnel.

Let's design all of our car infrastructure around the twice daily 30 minutes periods that KC seems "congested".

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

IIRC that particular deal is dead since the local funds were withdrawn.

There would likely need to be a new local deal in place before legislation could advance.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

So on off days it was quoting a connection to another US hub? Not apples to apples then. Thanks.
