Re: City Center Square for sale

I hear proposals and see renderings a lot for what people want. They very rarely go quickly, let alone happen.

They might really want Target here, and I wish them good luck.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Is there a law saying that a gas tax has to be put to a vote? Or does the state legislature just do it for political reasons?

I know politics is hard but our gas tax is stupidly low.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

This seems like a pretty bad outcome to me. Delayed to the point where we really can't predict transportation trends. Mixed streetcar is awful to begin with. I think it's getting harder to defend this project. Quite dramatic I mean so far they've failed at River front expansion and South expansion....

Ww1 is a fantastic museum.

Steamboat Arabia is a private museum that he desperately wants public money from. Sorry, no thanks

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

They sell a lot of artifacts and invest almost nothing in the museum as well.

Remember that it'll be further subsidized by schools and other local government crap.

Let him go.

I wouldn't call him a scammer, but he does this shit like every year. And sometimes they come pretty close to the line.

If the state is paying for it, I want it to be state property.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

As part of the bill they should say that no money can be taken out of the museum or any government funded operations without reimbursing the state. That family would run away in record time. “None of your family can work here and all new artifacts must be from sources outside of your family.” "No o...

Looks like this is basically true: went here for the downtown dazzle thing and point blank asked what was going on with cellar rat; they said cellar rat changed course on doing this and passed the project over to some entity that's going to do a kaleo/health/whatever concept, but that cellar rat wou...

I saw some people doing work at the southern corner where the wine bar was supposed to be. Anyone want to check the permits and see if anything is going on or if they were just scouting?

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

No matter what metric you use, it was a brutal winter. More than normal which made it hard to walk around and also lots of snow that just wouldn't melt. I'm not sure there is a good metric for downtown weather. Need something that combines cold with non-melting snow and ice. It can be cold for twent...

The $90M is now bonds... Eventually, city officials settled on a short-term bond borrowing that will be rolled into the long-term financing plan for the airport. The city is planning to issue bonds through the Industrial Development Authority, which will be repaid through fees from airlines for use...
