Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Not only is Loews a quality upgrade, Hyatt may still want to be in downtown KC, which may spawn another project even if smaller. http://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article157330409.html Do you think Hyatt will want to stay in DT KC? Or would they try to resurrect their Plaza project?

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

It passed the P&Z Committee and is on to the Council, which meets at 3:00pm today. What was the result? You would think this would be big news but I cannot find any mention of it in the Star today. I had heard that CFRG may take it to the courts if the city ignores their petition process (altho...

They have another 10 days for more signatures.

The council will likely pass the accelerated measure, but I bet that gets challenged in court.


Yea, the article sounds promising but agree with grovester here....this isn't over until dirt is turned.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Are there any actual updates on the hotel itself, and how close we are to getting groundwork started? The petition seems useless and pointless, especially if the city just settles everything and gets started. How close are they? This is the latest I could find. From what I can tell it involves the ...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Got this email today, ouch:


We want to let you know that the price of your Fiber 1000 + TV plan will be increasing from $130/month to $150/month starting with your July bill. (If you also subscribe to optional packages, the prices of those add-ons will remain the same.)

Agreed. I suspect it is a matter of time before the pull back completely.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The idea that the polling has shifted (or will shift) enough to pass between now and anytime soon is madness. This concept has to move the needle a little at least. 1. The needle needs to move A LOT. A lot a lot. 2. While Loar rarely does anything based on constituent desires on not her own self-in...

Part of me thinks they should cancel the election as a big FU since no taxes would be needed, but I'd also like to see it pass with the infrastructure margins and put the do nothing crowd back in their hole for a while.
