Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Ok, new idea. Rename the city. King City. Keep KC initials and no longer have the confusion of having 2 kansas cities, and not being in the state of kansas. I'd rather rename the whole city than the Paseo. Let's do it. I kinda like the name King City too. King City Royals sounds pretty cool if you a...

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 al...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

As ridership nears 4 million total rides it's become clear the financial model picked is a huge success for users, businesses and the city as a whole. It has improved community interactions, as people who never would have met otherwise had a chance to talk to each other. That's nearly 4 million tim...

Re: Independence Ave MAX

There are too many buses on 11th/12th now. They back up at main street and can't make that double turn very well.

Puting it down grand to the crown center would make the most sense to me.

Re: Missing hotel flags in Downtown

I thought this thread was going to be about country flags... Go to most cities in the world and their downtown/city center/tourist area hotels will fly several country flags to show their hotel welcomes guests from those countries, have staff that speak that languages. KC just isn't enough of a tour...

Re: OFFICIAL: Zona Rosa (tenants & phase II)

Saw yesterday Zona Rosa is 59% vacant. Really good example to prove to cities to stop approving more retail before the supporting residential is built. How do you get people to move to the Northland when all the high paying jobs in KC are all within a couple miles of I-435 & I-35 in JoCo? I exp...

Re: Sporting Kansas City

Sporting KC just had their 100th sellout game. Does this begin to show signs that they need a larger stadium similar in size to those in smaller European cities? Would they consider a DT stadium and when is their lease up at Sportibg Park? a Sporting "sellout" still has many open seats si...

You can get most of those at CVS and now there is same day Amazon delivery (essentially an online Walmart). You can't really compare cost of living downtown to the burbs, you have to compare it to other US cities - and downtown KC is lower cost than avg. But yeah, downtown does need more retail var...

The current project has no plan to repurpose them. The parking garages will continue to be used.
