Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

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.

i meant to say paleo but was having a hard time remembering the difference between keto or paleo and i guess i split the middle.
Perhaps because all diets are scams.

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.
Clearly the caps and fees aren't helping their profitability.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Is part of the reason they shut down because of the end of the pilot and needing to reapply for whatever this next phase is KCMO keep advertising? Interim process could last up to six months. Lime launched in September. These VC-backed scooter companies are burning through lots of cash, and investo...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

It almost seems like there needs to be a rail aspect, albeit a small one, to sell a regional tax to the area. Is there enough buzz in a bus only proposal? Polling will lead the way. I'm convinced rail isn't necessary for a yes vote because it won't work in the counties that need to start contributi...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

1. No route beyond the urban core would score well for federal transit IMO (see the 2008 light rail plan). 2. Rail is very expensive to build and only getting more expensive -- local money spent on capital won't ever be available for operations. 3. If you add rail to one part of the region, others w...

A few semi related questions: -What do you see our streetcar system looking like in 5,15,20, and 50 years? -When do you think we will expand north to NKC? -When do you think we will expand east/west? -Is there any place you envision an additional N/S line? -How far do you believe we will expand in ...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

Sorry, gents. There will be no rail -- light or heavy -- in your lifetime south of UMKC or north of NKC... especially not to the airport. The ridership, density, and federal support just isn't there. If you disagree, go sell the shit yourselves to elected officials once they get the price tag (or ac...

Lime pulled out of the market until Spring. All staff at the warehouse were laid off unexpectedly.
