Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Maybe we should just stop perpetuating this social racial divide? Maybe? Unless of course MLK Jr. fought for self-segregation. Then, by all means.. I'm sorry guys. You are right. The racial healing begins by telling the black community that a combination of community organization and due process ar...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

..incredibly insulting to the black community. The Paseo is a boulevard in the heart of the KC black community. Maybe we should just stop perpetuating this social racial divide? Maybe? Unless of course MLK Jr. fought for self-segregation. Then, by all means.. I'm sorry guys. You are right. The raci...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I am against renaming The Paseo, it's a historic name. Why can't they just rename a number street or I-70? There are already 900 MLK streets/ bridges in the US anyways, everyone already knows who he is, why not rename a street for a local civil rights activist or someone like Medgar Evers who was a...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Not to be cold on the subject, but did MLK ever visit KC? He is a huge and important historic figure, but can't we promote the name of local civil rights figures that were important to our local history? I feel like we are playing copy-cat to every other metro in the U.S....and way late, I might ad...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Paseo is good for cyclists.

What will become of West Paseo? Will it be West MLK? Can it be The Paseo now? Or will it just fail to have any context?

Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

I'm all for having the Crossroads Academy downtown, but not inclined to pay for a dedicated playground for the students. The garden, even if just in a corner, seems like a missed opportunity, and the above-ground parking garage would decimate some amazing views. I'd love to see something along the ...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree. It seems odd to keep Bob Sullivan and give up on Peters. I hope we're at least getting a decent haul of draft picks for giving up a Pro Bowl caliber corner with three years left before free agency.

Re: Freshwater - Midtown

How does one "install" new retail? Do you kick existing folks out? You build new neighborhood retail. Create walkable streets with patios, benches, places to gather. Restaurants, bakerys, pubs, shops. We need to slow things down to make it attractive. I guess I just don't see the room, de...

Re: Westport

I honestly think anti density people would rather see the neighborhood completely rot, a ghost land/shell of a place as long as it preserves that historic feel The historic feel like Times Square once had with prostitution and crime? I'd rather take 1970's Deuce Crime then what we have today. I'm f...

The Guild does pretty well down there - . Maybe not QUITE as swank as that new place, but still high end event space. Berg and Orange aren't too far from there either.

Does anyone know anything about the new owner? The article has a very long explanation of the name but only says the new owner has 17 years in the industry but not where or in what capacity. Also not much about what the new place will be like other than cocktails and a few menu changes. Here's the ...

It just doesn't look like there is enough space unless they encroach upon KCI logistical support off Paris an...
