Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Phoenix, Minneapolis, Houston, etc have light rail dedicated in center lanes, we could do that.... you can't tell me it is hard to do just because we are in America. We tried getting voter approval for that -- twice -- and both attempts failed (city hall support for it was tepid, business support n...

Exactly. Genius marketing move in the days where commercial LEDs were only that harsh blue color.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Public works knows. I was just wondering if anyone here had seen what the plans are and if they are just copy/paste the starter line specs or not. I know it seems ridiculous to be concerned with something like this but it would go along way to making the route look more pedestrian friendly and not l...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The orange are high pressure sodium lighting, They provide a ton of light but are an old technology. If you’re ever curious to see the difference, drive down 75th st in PV ant night and compare those 3000k to those in Roeland Park at 4000k or so. The warmer lights are much more inviting.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Yeah who likes daylight. Gross. No need to be a smartass. Nobody likes daylight at 2 am. . There is a reason municipalities are going away from it. It screws with wildlife and even human circadian rythyms. You wouldn’t put a daylight LED in your home. I would hope the new lighting will be 3000 kelv...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Will the expansion come with new LED street lighting like the starter line did? Also, will they use the lower Kelvin lighting? That harsh daylight blue LED lighting downtown is really bad.

Re: Kansas City Tour Trolleys, time to bring them back!

Hey, it's 2017 and we have two companies providing tourist-oriented tours of KC. Anyway, I found a vaguely appropriate threat to post this Pitch article, wherein David Hudnall uses going on a double-decker tour as a framing device to point out that he *really* doesn't like the direction that downto...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

A lot of people complaining about the name having no following or that it's dumb need to remember that only a few years ago a BBQ restaurant was opened with an even worse name and became a huge hit...Q39. A name doesn't really matter. If the food is good, service polite and quick and a good atmosph...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I'm sure people thought opening a restaurant in a gas station next to a run down strip mall made no sense either. I bet it'll end up just fine.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Seems very much like they are tryharding to pull off "trendy bistro" or whatever when all anybody--tourists and locals--wants is a bbq joint. I don't doubt it will do well enough, but I'm thoroughly confused how it is that anyone thought this was a better idea than a simple downtown Joe's...

You don't have to get on 70, but it helps. James St to 12th st bridge is my preferred route.
