Re: Confederate monuments in KC

This is all interesting as it indeed could lead to removal of statues of presidents who, say, owned slaves. Let each community/neighborhood decide what they want to represent and let others criticize it. That's America. Some are comparing this to religious pieces in public parks. In that case, allow...

Re: Politics

If GOP can get Trump to resign by end of year, that's enough time for Pence to rebuild party or at least align with GOP enough to become effective with his own agenda and build up for a 2020 election. But yeah, impeachment process might take too long for GOP to recover damage even if Trump impeached...

Re: Politics

Agree and if GOP starts to talk impeachment or encourage resignation, will be interesting to see how DEMs play their cards, how they approach keeping Trump in. It will get bizarre if it comes to impeachment procedure and most DEMs don't vote for it. There will probably be some DEMs who would rather ...

Re: Politics

Resignation would probably best for all but would indie moderates/lefties rather have an ineffective Trump or a more likely effective Pence with his traditional right-wing ideology? Impeachment process could be difficult and potentially bring up new risks for establishment GOP as it could split part...

Re: Attracting Employers Downtown (and Urban Core)

Having a major urban research university would certainly help. Especially important for any research related industries KC is pursuing (smart city, tech, animal health). KC does pretty well growing white collar jobs w/out it but could struggle drawing research related companies to area. KU/K-State/M...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Any talks of including 'smart city' sensors, kiosks, etc with the extension? Does anyone actually use those kiosks? I do to check location of streetcar. Just hit lower right transit icon. But haven't used for anything else. Maybe visitors do? There's a report in other thread claiming the kiosks are...

Re: Attracting Employers Downtown (and Urban Core)

Some of the challenges depending on employer... - Some want large blocks of cheap nearby parking, especially more difficult with over 1K employers (essentially free in burbs). - Some want larger floor plates (easier to find/build in the burbs). - Metro wide transit not effective enough, though centr...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

^Nice to see that lot marketed. 28K sqft land for $2.5M. Any records of how much other recent central downtown lots sold for in comparison? Perhaps other lot owners would be more willing to sell if that lot sells for that much. Would be nice to see large open lots developed around 7th/8th and Wyando...

I can understand why a developer wouldn't start out as condos because they take too much time to sell and/or need to sell a good half of building before starting construction. Starting out as leased units then once full convert to condo has been the national pattern for a while now. The market condi...

Re: Politics

Back to North Korea, looks like Kim J is holding off on more testing (towards Guam) for now. But with two hot heads in the picture, obviously it wouldn't take much to escalate again sooner than later. It seems there is no scenario for NK to get rid of its nuke program and eventually will be able to ...
