Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

austin has done that for bikes and hence scooters....they allow bikes/scooters on a majority of their sidewalks from what I read.


Is it a non-starter to think KCMO could allow these on the sidewalk? That's about the only place I feel safe riding them.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I think that maybe a good idea....my only concern with blocking off certain streets with ordinance like Austin did is having to go back and managing that list as downtown changes.

can you link to that map you mention...I can't find it.

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

I mean it would suck no doubt....but you rent a second floor unit in a downtown neighborhood that has commercial space below.....got to factor that stuff in when you are looking at places.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Reading up on these in other cities, it seems to be a real mismash of sidewalk usage being legal. Austin it is as they fall under personal mobility assistive devices (segways too). They actually allow bikes on most downtown sidewalks (outside of like 6th Street). Other areas like SF it's not legal a...

Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

Toured yesterday....overall place is great. The big suite on 7 wasn't that impressive except for the outdoor space. The regular rooms that were listed on the tour were all locked so didn't get to check out s room.

Loved the art....absolutely love that chandelier

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

People are already mad about this move saying they will no longer go to Pigwich/Local Pig because of the parking. Freestyle Poke is also having parking issues. I guess people are parking in the lot intended for the building but its only for restaurant patrons till 4pm, after 4 its for residents onl...

I hope someone had the forethought to save the old sign, and it's not in some salvage yard.


The old sign was up until like a month ago...I'm sure they saved it.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

It always surprised me how hostile many businesses are to the neighborhood around them. I've not owned a retail business but I feel like your role as a business isn't to shape the hood but to support how that neighborhood grows and matures.

Did they confirm what exactly they were doing? Adding location? Moving? Butcher counter and/or pigwich?

I was surprised to find a week old permit hadn't made the public rounds yet....
