Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

No the plaza doesnt need anything new. It will attract more people if we allow it to decay.

Re: West Plaza

Now where the Mattress store is? That parking lot is already a cluster fuck because it's so small and theres so much parking. Don't think I would be opposed to changing it. Business owners there would probably feel differently though.

Re: West Plaza

... That Fork in the road on Westport Rd replaced That intersection was studied by HDR in 2010 or 2011. IIRC the impediment was that any solution involved the strip mall losing a chunk of its parking lot. If you search around I’m sure this is discussed somewhere on this site. I'll check it out. Not...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

If you voted against Jolie Justus because you thought she was a Sly James clone or puppet, you voted based on a very false premise. I can understand voting for either of the 2 candidates, but not against either one. She was an establishment stooge dude. I'd be interested in hearing more about your ...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Uniting the East side with the republicans was quite a feat. I guess the lesson is to be the 2nd most progressive candidate on the ballot? Impressive indeed. It's almost like Lucas acknowledged there was more to KC than just throwing money around downtown. Justus just sounded like a robot repeating...

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

...Lucas won't have much of a honeymoon period. My expectations are high, based on the rhetoric in the campaign. Mine too and he's only 34. Deliver on some of this stuff he very well could be a star for higher office but first things first. Also they were talking about the new administration hopes ...

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

Whats the primary issue with Schulte? from what i've seen hes not bad in his position. It appears Lucas ...

Re: Westport

Yeah I miss IMO's. The El Fogon place that replaced it just isnt very good. Excited for Big Biscuit to open next door. that imos in westport was terrible, unless they turned it around. although, at least 1/2 of imos locations are pretty bad...the corporate QA/QC re: ingredients and prep are non-exi...
