Re: We need a new airport!!!

Sometimes you can lose a good deal in search for the absolute best deal....and end up with nothing.

I agree skepticism is good when looking at this deal.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Agreed...this isn't a normal deal. I think we all get that. I think the city getting outside council is a prudent step. Given it's not the city asking for bids in return for city backed money....I still am not sure what "bids" everybody expects here? Burns and mac have come in with an offe...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Actually, they are not, as the city is preparing to sign the MOU.


In June. This was floated publicly by the mayor last year and I'm sure more forcefully privately to these firms.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Burns and Mac is not going to cut corners in this. This will be their showcase design. I say it will pass easily for multiple reasons. I agree it probably would have passed anyways. Now you have some addition benefit of it being fast and the "no city bonds" people. Between June and Novembe...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Bonding capacity is definitely a pro in this deal. No matter how safe airport bonds are.

This project with private funding is scheduled to be done 2 years faster than the original city plan.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Where was that posted and by whom?

There is no odd line around 1 Park place. The property tax line goes straight north and south.

The sales tax goes around that building but there is no retail there?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

As I've put it together after years of watching and today's business session Pros: Quicker to market by two years No bond issuance by the city reduces our outstanding bonding capacity (which is independent of how bonds are paid off) Big ticket item using local engineering firm so more local jobs, et...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I don't feel like the map for this TDD is gerrymandered. It's basically equidistant away from the asset (streetcar line). I'd think that's one thing the judge would look at when looking at the map they are approving...that it's not gerrymandering.

I like mail in. Auto sending ballots to all voters would be cooler.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I like the idea because it's who pays is who votes.

I do think just mailing out ballots to all active voters in defined border would be better.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Overplaying the headaches angle a bit. Guess it is tough to actually have standards for design vs. throw up whatever you want.
