Re: Troost developments

That corridor (as well as some of the midtown Troost nodes) would absolutely explode if 2 things happened: redevelop the Landing site, and upgrade the Troost Max to true BRT. Troost is low hanging fruit for the first time in probably 50 years.

Yes. I meant KC writ large. KCMOs site sucked too. I guess because Cerner sucks.

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

Clickbait is clickbait. Missouri is ass-trash backwards from a civil rights perspective, but no worse than the rest of the south, and even then it’s still light years ahead of probably 75% of the must-“do” destinations in the churn of yuppie travel porn.

You can also attribute it to some immigrants who wanted their children to 'be American', by not teaching them the Old World ways or language. After a couple generations the identity could become lost. But would suspect many who call themselves American as their ancestry is about Provincial National...

Re: Main Street MAX

thanks for the reminder about the turn lane on cleaver! No need to fix the turn lane back up if you eliminate the south plaza jog... plaza library generates a lot of trips. why eliminate jog now when streetcar construction will disrupt that segment of main/brookside? I see your point about construc...

Seems fairly ignorant to write off a group of people’s cultural identity as “super dumb” just because you personally wouldn’t do it that way, and that’s not an opinion.
