Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Those things signal less congestion to me.... Not more Ride sharing generates congestion because the cars are out driving around looking for rides or on the way to pick up a passenger. It also reduces transit use. https://qz.com/1103247/uber-and-lyft-services-may-increase-road-congestion-as-people-...

Re: OFFICIAL - Commerce Tower

but I swear there's a south-to-north downward incline that I don't recall noticing before the reno. You are correct. The flooring for this retail space (CVS) was built to accommodate the slight incline on Main in order to have doors on both streets (as originally designed). I'm not following the 10...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Because as we sit right now , you will never get the community support behind "taking away lanes and parking" at this point and time. You won't get community support if you take away their ability to turn left on Main . Why is left hand turns an issue? Don't many intersections on Main alr...

I concur. Ate there last night and tried 3 bowls ("Good" size bowl, which is the smaller of the 2 options and plenty of food), they were all very different and all excellent. They didn't have beer but had just received their license and expect they will be selling booze real soon. I got f...
