5. Remind the bus drivers that people get on the bus dressed for the weather, so maybe running the heater a 95 degrees anytime the outdoor temperature is below 75 isn’t the most comfortable rider experience.


yessss. And most of us have been walking and are already at comfortable temperature.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I agree with everything fang said and someone please bring it up at the design meetings. For an example of why a connected hotel is so great, I have a stupidly bad flight coming up in a different city. I get in at noon, have a few meetings, and fly out at 530am the next day. Shuttles are stressful a...

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

I know I'm in the minority, but I actually like this area. I hope something better can go in than bk. Count me in on the need for "food to walk with" group. Also a 24/7 place, even with average food.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

BRT makes far more sense than rail right now. I'm picturing something kind of Barcelona style to start with which I've always found really easy and enjoyable. Limited stops and all feeding into the streetcar. Nothing wrong with charging more if it's nice and reliable. I'd brand it separately than th...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I can't imagine going to a design meeting of a billion dollar facility and my input is electrical outlets. So is Kansas City though I hear ya, but it would be cool if we could get a technology partner early to commit to coming in. Google would be the obvious choice if they're interested. See this i...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

USO and ..... None of the legacy carriers has a large enough presence here to bother with operating a lounge of their own, so I'd bet on it being "The Club at MCI" (Priority Pass, etc.), with an outside chance of it being an Amex Centurion lounge instead. USO Plus 2 airline clubs This is ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Did anyone bring up anything practical like places for people to shower and change clothes when they are stuck in the airport because of storms, or delays? Perhaps those small sleeping pods like they have in Japan that you can rent by the hour. I always feel sorry for people stuck overnight at KCI ...

KCI is broadening its horizons, stepping up efforts to attract international air service and hosting a community design meeting for the new terminal in Johnson County after all. https://cityscenekc.com/city-steps-up-efforts-to-land-trans-atlantic-air-service-at-kci-invites-johnson-county-to-the-des...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

You guys are a tough crowd. I don't see anything wrong with making it regional. Build good faith. There should be plenty of KCMO resident meetings because the city tax covers the approach roads, the employees are city employees and it's a city facility. But having some meetings outside KCMO would b...

There's absolutely no work being done on cellar rat's and I question if it will ever happen, but they still have a big sign up. No progress on the main restaurant space either. kevin tells me it's still happening... That's great news and what I keep hearing as well. I just would love to see some ac...

Re: OFFICIAL - East9 (former Pickwick Plaza)

The north corner spot here is going to be a coffee shop. I completely forgot to ask which one but can probably be found on permits or I'll ask. They're getting ready to take over the space and start construction. The facial bar has relocated and should be opening up today after a final inspection. T...

I'm so happy this passed and even happier it passed with a majority that will end debate on this forever.

Yep. 40 bucks.


Streaming only? Or am I missing something.

These things scare me because I spend $40 and then the site inevitably collapses and I waste a day trying to get a refund.
