Re: Amenities missing from downtown

I’m sure not the place to put this. There is a new Formula E road racing league that just started. All electric cars and similar to a Grand Prix, Monte Carlo-type race. That’d be pretty cool to have downtown and would be a good connector to us pushing for more technology businesses and green jobs. ...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

New TV show at Sundance set in KC called "Bootstrapped". It's some sort of tech sitcom. https://www.parkrecord.com/entertainment/sundance-film-bootstrapped-pulls-a-kansas-city-shuffle-on-tech-sitcoms/ The Park City Record describes KC as: "a landlocked region of two million people known more for pro...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

And would replace the name of a street that's synonymous with segregation in KC. I don't disagree with anything you guys are saying. I just don't think the goal was to choose a street that needed rebranding - like Troost or Prospect. Maybe those would be overall better candidates for a name change....

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I was really hoping for Nichols Road. I was hoping for Troost. It's named after an actual slave holder. And would replace the name of a street that's synonymous with segregation in KC.

I see activity all the time. I even see lots of people setting up tents so they can experience the beautiful park at all hours.
I think Washington Park in the warm months is a very affordable hostile or airbnb.

WTF! I’m all for art, but why are we blocking a major artery for it?
Could be kind of a pain, but I think Charlotte and Oak are just as "major" as Rockhill. People will figure it out with detour signs. It just 3 weeks.

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I hope local media picks up on the fact that, rather than work on a compromise, city council just voted to change The Paseo against the wishes of 85%+ of KCMO voters. I want to know why anyone who voted for this would seek election in April or ever again? Not everything gets to be decided by refere...

Looks like Bluhawk Hockey Arena might end up being a bust and Price Brothers are going after the Great Mall Site for a Hockey Arena/Redevelopment.

You can expect that. It's on trend.
Put it in JoCo or the The Legends - let those suckers pony up for a change.

MDOT blamed voters not passing the gas tax in November to fund a new bridge. Isn't this not until 2020 at the earliest? I can't find ...
