Re: Bike Lanes

I’ve yet to see a single bike utilize the bike lanes downtown around the Power and Light area. I’ve seen more skateboard nerds than anything. If it's nice over Christmas, I'll be biking down there probably... but these recent comments seem to ignore the fact that we're heading into winter. Cold. It...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Not to derail much further from the topic, but it'll be interesting to see if we start seeing cities trade land for development opportunities. Unity Village gave up everything south of Bannister to Lee's Summit a few years ago (except the apartment complex that holds most of the village population) ...

Re: BBQ WARS!

Another chain BBQ struggles and goes under in KC. How many extant bbq chain restaurants are there in KC (outside of KC chains)? Is there still a Famous Dave's out at the Legends? I guess there will be another Billy Simms in Gardner in 2018. http://www.kansascity.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/...

KC Life Insurance, aka the reason why there's a number of other vacant lots around.

Re: Abandoned Kansas City Star Article

Yeah, it sounds familiar to me too. Best bet on finding it would be one of the databases that MCPL subscribes to that contains all Star articles since like 1990 or so... it wouldn't have pictures but it'd have text at least.

Re: The KC City Flag

Wichita's city flag has enough design mojo that there's a movement afoot to make it available as a personalized license plate. http://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article178464901.html I'm not sure if Missouri allows such a thing, and even if they did, the current KC flag blows and proba...

Font is too bold making it appear blocky - not attractive.
Viewing from the south the letters are so large it makes the building look shorter and blockier.


How does it differ from One Light?

Re: Bike Lanes

I'm glad something is getting done, but it's a shame to see them backing down from the original vision. Does anyone know if these will be buffered or not? it's not 100% buffered, but most of grand is. here are the design plans: https://data.kcmo.org/Transportation/Final-Bike-KC-4-3-16/6phz-6gj8 I c...

Re: Crossroads needs greenspace

A great starting place to try one of these would be in one of the places where on-street parking was removed for the streetcar because the width of the remaining parking lane was too narrow, or where there's otherwise a stretch of pavement that's striped off because it's too narrow for parking.
