Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Fingers crossed the delay is partly due to waiting on an I-670 lid announcement they're partially involved in, since that would directly impact the design (allow for south facing balconies on the lower levels)

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

The 2018 census population estimates were released today. Another good year for KC, but not as good as the previous two years which I think were at around 20k and 22k.

Re: City Center Square for sale

Since the new owner is doing extensive remodeling, maybe they could request to have the streetcar stop moved north of 12th st. I'm sure they'd love to have it on their doorstep and there is plenty of space to accommodate a shelter. Still unhappy there is no shelter at Metro Center southbound.

Bunch and Jolley within 4 votes in the 4th district (21 of 28 precincts reporting).
If it ends this close are there run-offs? Recounts?

Re: OFFICIAL - McCown Gordon HQ

Why? Tore down a two story building directly on the streetcar line and replaced it with another two story building while giving incentives to move a company five blocks. Such a waste of a good spot that already had a building...and we had to pay for it. It was a renovation, not a complete teardown.

Re: KC in TV and Movies

Music video for Ssion's song 'Inherit' features at least a few scenes filmed in KC (they used to live here) The opening scene is at Royal Liquors on SW Blvd. There's a quick scene or two on Grand (you can see the 47 bus), and I think the cemetary scenes are Union Hill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
