Houston is proposing $2 Billion + in light rail lines. Roughly $1.8 Billion is dedicated to two rail lines with an expected ridership of ~2,800 pax/day each.
Houston is:

1. Big
2. Rich
3. Growing

We are just big.

Shouldn't be a TIF, especially if we weren't able to use it for the BNIM project (which had a clear public benefit with the storm water component).

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I would anticipate an Uber-style preemption bill is introduced in the next legislative session, perhaps in Kansas too. KCMO will likely be stripped of its ability to charge fees other than for cost recovery.

Re: Proposed tower on Plaza

Honestly? The Plaza/Westport area is already a serious freaking hell hole of traffic, cars, honking horns, speeders, hostile drivers, screaming motorcycles, trucks, exhaust pollution and the QT super block nearby isn't exactly going to help fix that either. Lost cause in my opinion. Barring some ki...

I mean I totally understand these companies putting away the scooters in the winter.....I was just wondering if the current KCMO process impacted them too.
