Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

When I click through the "permits" link for that on parcel viewer, there's nothing recent. This leads me to believe this renovation is NOT permitted by the city. I'd report it to 311. There's usually a reason people avoid getting permits...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

People are already mad about this move saying they will no longer go to Pigwich/Local Pig because of the parking. Freestyle Poke is also having parking issues. I guess people are parking in the lot intended for the building but its only for restaurant patrons till 4pm, after 4 its for residents onl...

Ugh. Some dude bought it from the Leedys, kicked everyone out and has clearly failed at this renovation.


There was work going on at this site today. Maybe it's not a lost cause.

Re: Church of the Resurrection Downtown Campus

The thing that troubles me about the existence of this church - not the building - is that Grand Avenue Temple, also UMC, is less than a mile away and, if I'm not mistaken, has been struggling financially for decades. Churches are now a full-on business. There's a limited market of customers, and y...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I tried to check out all three of the scooters at Corrigan around 1pm. The app recognized the QR code but wouldn't complete the checkout. Force closed the app and even restarted my phone and it was stuck "unlocking" one of them for well over 10 minutes. It finally released and I think I mi...

It's the same with bikes. Why buy a bike when you need a place to store it on both ends of the trip and then someone steals it?

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Transportation usage varies wildly, which is why the industry often speaks in averages. Weather and events are particularly noticeable with streetcar, but there is a core weekday ridership (~2,500) that's there even in the dead of winter -- assuming there is no service disruption.

Formal opening isn't until July 17. I would expect everything to be lit and clean by then.

We moved our stay up a few weeks, now that they're opening earlier than planned. Can't wait to see the galleries.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

We had several that showed on the map but had problems today. I ran into one yesterday that had a similar issue: showed on the map, but can't check out it. Today we rode to La Bodega for lunch, then rode up Summit (slowly!), across 14th to Washington/Wyandotte, over the Town of Kansas bridge, down t...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

If you take a scooter on the streetcar do they still charge by the mile? Is it GPS based or does each scooter have an internal odometer? It's time based, by the minute (after the initial $1 checkout fee). Each scooter has a GPS radio and a cellular modem, so they know where they're at all times. I ...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

So just did a spot check on map and it shows less than 50 again. In this case appears to be about a lot checked out at once in active use as the number of map updates per minute higher than through the week. Makes sense given streetcar ridership also higher on weekends. Will streetcar/scooter compl...

I'm sure you'd be against it when the inevitable ask for public subsidy is revealed.
