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

Um no. Horrible idea to have a team split between cities 250 miles apart. No investor would go for that. It failed with the Kings in the exact same market for the same reasons I stated above. Season tickets and suite sales. Not to mention doubling all the operational expenses, office spaces, marketi...

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

We split cities with the Kings.

Season tickets and suites would be a hard sell. Just put it in Columbia, two hours from both cities.

That's a stupid idea too. KC doesn't need to share its NBA team. If OKC can support a team, so can we.

Re: Bike Lanes

Yep. they cleared the trees from Lee's Summit to Southern Raytown (Phase 1) in February, Got it graded last week. That part connects it to the Little Blue Valley system. Supposed to open in December.

Not sure when the Raytown to TSC is supposed to be done.

Is Kansas City becoming an inverted city.

I was just thinking last night about the surge in Downtown residents and the lack of a surge in downtown businesses. Is KC becoming inverted? Is DT becoming a lifestyle center that is more desirable to live in even though your job might be in the burbs? With the build out of the streetcar to the Pla...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

I think I'll take Dave's word for it.

I didn't think the TDD was an option anymore with the vote to make all rail planning city wide. Am I off on that?

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

While she is a troll, I think you are a bit misguided. This is Kansas City. The "Bass Pro Demographic" does come downtown. Almost all of the city falls into the demopgraphic in some way. Of course they do. Why do you think we have a huge 3 story neon outline of cowboys in our downtown ent...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

I don't see any point in streetcar to TSC. Unrealistic that there will be baseball played there in 20 years, and 20 events a year at Arrowhead don't justify it. If rail ever gets built on the Rock Island then there will be a stop for TSC. Only way I would be for a line to TSC is if the Hunts and Gla...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

I am so glad I found this. My pet peeve is parking. I hate never being able to find a good parking spot. It is not easy to have to walk to far in heels and it is not good after dark to be a lady walking alone. I bet you hate malls and big box stores too. You have to walk the equivalent of dozens of...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

it's a lack of desire. there are plenty of options in a similar price range for cladding and glazing. To ST's point. cordish does have a responsibility to the city to deliver an aesthetically pleasing product that integrates with the cities aesthetic.

Why is no one saying "Rape". Every news report is saying things like "forced non-consensual sex" and "Unwilling sexual encounter". It's Rape. He is being accused of rape.
