Re: Misc Crossroads News

On the upcoming PIEA schedule has an abatement request for 1717 Walnut, which is the building just north of the Walnut Terrace project that appears to be getting close to completion. Currently, there weren't any details as to what the plans are for the building. Streetview KCDowntown hmm... that's ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Honestly, if you live right by a streetcar stop WoodDraw you should be using itsab.us. I too live and work near a stop and I always use it to time my arrival to the station. Rarely wait more than a minute, two tops. But I feel you re: stopping at red lights--it's BS that we could easily solve from ...

Re: West 39th Street Apartments

don't fight this project because of aesthetics. if you want better, lobby for design guidelines (which we clearly don't have) or get a meeting with the developer. why give opponents the ammunition when you won't get what you want with internet chatter? taking the long view, things are improving and ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I just missed a streetcar today. Since I have heard people say they can out walk it, I did a little jog to see if i could catch up by the next stop. I wasn't even close. That's part of the problem. I live right on the streetcar. Last time I tried to take it for a planned reason, I walked from the s...

Re: West 39th Street Apartments

I love the comments about congestion. The idea that a single apartment complex would create congestion is absurd. Maybe if everyone in the complex routinely left and arrived at exactly the same time it would create a 2 minute traffic jam. I've lived near much larger complexes and their impacts on t...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I outwalk the streetcar on a fairly consistent basis. I've posted about it here multiple times. It's also horribly unreliable. Have a train to catch? You can't depend on any consistency in timing of streetcars. Better to just start walking and maybe you'll time it right. yes, we know. do you use tr...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

The biggest response that I hear from my suburbanite friends when I talk about how popular the streetcar is, is “Just wait til they start charging for it! No one will ride!”. Please don’t make us urban supporters look stupid by charging. Just don’t even research it. They don't even need to do a pol...

Re: Porchfest

Having to cross SW trafficway was kind of a pain. Maybe just have it all in roanoake next year would be better. Thought it was a little too spread out this year. i consulted with them on that. didn't people park on the trafficway (which is totes legal on the weekend) to calm the traffic a bit? were...

Candidates for mayor and City Council positions must be at least 25 years old, qualified City voters, residents of the City for five years and of their district for six months, and have paid City and county taxes for t...

Re: West 39th Street Apartments



i guess we can rest assured these online petitions never amount to much. people have to show up or communicate directly with elected officials en masse.

Re: North Oak MAX

Apologies for bringing up potentially fantastical thoughts, but I'm wondering why a N Oak MAX can't run one stop north to new KCI, combining with 229 for higher frequency? A MAX station curbside at a new KCI with frequent fare-free trips to downtown servicing Prairie View or N Oak along the way - w...
