Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

Would imagine more proposals in the works involving city help of some form will rush for approval before Aug 1, if ducks in a row that is. Might we see some new proposals pop in just to get in before then, that we haven't heard about yet?

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

A little disappointing to see the blank wall along sidewalk from a Chicago developer. Will matter more when streetcar stop right at the corner.

My 2 cents on *counter* pizza (excluding 'artisan' places)... Pizza 51 can't be beat in quality of ingredients, flavor and crust - can taste each ingredient separately. Bottom of barrel of those discussed has to be Sarpinos, there are cheap frozen pizzas with less chemical flavor. Papa Keno's after ...

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

It shouldn't be as bad as Funkhouser years now that there is more natural momentum downtown but downtown won't be on the Mayors plate as much.

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

All KCATA buses are free to ride today, including KS side. Give it a try if you've never ridden a bus.

Use Google Maps to set destination and click on the transit icon. It will show buses coming to nearest stop that will take you there.

Justus has experience dealing with Jeff City and some seem to like her. Can't see Lucas having any impact at the state level.

BTW, bus rides are free tomorrow for the election.
