Re: We need a new airport!!!

They need to reach financial close. That's for sure. I don't even know if they're still aiming for 30% design. But they need to close. After that they can blame shit on other people, but they're in charge of financing. We need a final agreement and financial close. How can you have a financial clos...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

expanding the gates by 4 didn't cause a year delay. That's insanity. The facility had to be "redesigned" to not just have 4 more gates but also the support structure for 7 more gates and be designed in a way for 15 more to be built. I'm saying that all these factors came together to creat...

Re: Politics

This fall will be an interesting time. Do the GOP candidates start running away from Trump if they are losing their races for the Senate and House? So many have tied themselves to Trump, been in OK and so many of the candidates running for office say a vote for them is a vote for Trump. And with the...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

FWIW, the Kansas City Public Service company started to replace streetcars with "motor buses" in 1933 with an abandonment of an East/West rail line from Troost to Summit along 33rd, 25th and 24th Streets. This was 2 years after abandoning its first line that ran in front of Union Station. ...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

Sharing a MO NBA team could address NHL overlap at STL arena. And investors (edit: as well as larger fan base) from both markets could reduce risk. And could help build KC/STL relationships.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

The BAP would be a lousy location for the Conservatory. And the way it is built now it is a lousy location for a park. Reason, the park should be more in line with the street grade on the three sides. Best solution? Blow up the garage, go deeper with a new garage and with the space above terrace the...

Re: Is Kansas City becoming an inverted city.

For the most part I would agree with your assessment. It has been awhile but the last time I looked at growth numbers for both jobs and residents the pace of growth was greater in the areas further out (10 miles) for a city's core, not just KCMO but for cities across the nation. So in that respect K...

I like the idea of a Bass pro Shop downtown. Would make a good addition for visitors. I can't picture where a building that big would fit The Bass Pro shop itself in Branson is quite small and would work in a downtown retail location. The problem would be having an area to display and service boats...

If you look at past politics from the 50's and 60's up to now there was always some partisanship and "win at all costs" attitudes during the elections but when it came time to legislation those in the middle usually came out the winners. Both parties had the left and right wings, the South...
