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

What happened to the city plan to build a giant garage with street level retail between the market and Delaware? I believe it died. Hopefully--but what is dead can never truly die. Something like that anyway. Seems you're right. Right now, according to the city, there are no plans to add public gar...

Re: Downtown needs larger police presence

There was a cop hanging around the Union Station streetcar stop on July 4 in the morning. I gathered she'd gotten off the streetcar and was perhaps hanging on the platform waiting for the next one. That would be off-duty PD. Is this some sort of official streetcar thing? Last night I noticed that t...

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

That's an awful move for KCSoda, less space so have to provide less product mix. Less exposure since you have to enter the City Market corridor (interior) to see it rather than the street location it is located. I love the counter idea, they could have vanilla ice cream and make all sorts of floats...

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Is anything ever going to happen there? Its dragging down the whole neighborhood. Union Hill Founders is below 80% occupancy for the first time ever. The building on the SW corner of 30th & Gillham has only 4 occupied units out of 23 total. My guess?....there may be something else going on cont...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Grabbed one after getting off bus this morning and motor wouldn't kick start, acted like breaks were on even though 'unlocked', I heard scooter click to unlock. I finished the ride right a way and gave it a one star rating, it asked why, and clicked the problem. So far it's still showing a charge (...

"So when this change is underwhelming it's because it's 15 years behind."

I think those words are engraved on the wall in the council chamber.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

^Given they can be dropped off anywhere, electric and depending on range, agree Bcycle could be in trouble unless scooters cause issues and KCMO bans them. A couple cities have so far. edit: Back down to only 4 scooters in RM at about 12:30. They are indeed being used. Found that range is 15-18 mil...

Re: e-Scooter Share

I found it pretty convenient over lunch to use for running an errand. The $4 price was maybe a little steep and will help keep my B-cycle membership going in cooler weather. I rode in the street except when I needed to go the wrong way on a street :D Riding on the sidewalk with all the grates and pe...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Looks to be catching on quickly. This morning it showed only a few scooters in River Market, at lunch hour there are quite a few more. There were a few at Anton's an hour ago, now none. They're shifting around. Could this impact streetcar ridership? In some cases it may improve ridership if used to...
