Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Major shift from the administration's first two budget documents, which sought to eliminate the program entirely:

No specific projects were listed in the budget.

We don't have a grid network, we have *four* grid networks. That's the cause of a lot of connectivity problems.

The person who actually works in transit is telling you we will likely move to more of a grid network than exists today.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Are we confident or like super confident? (b) Congress reopens earmarks ("Article I Projects") and our bi-state delegation earmarks the federal match (most likely) If earmarks come back, would that make it easier to get federal funds on other future extensions? (vs. going through a program such as ...

Re: North Oak MAX

Why do we always have to keep these lines running north/south? Same with traffic configurations. Everything orients for quicker traffic from “nice” suburbs to DT. Is there really no demand for an ECII/47th Max line or are we worried about crossing lines or “problems” on the Plaza? Downtown is still...

Those walls look ominously and mundanely sterile, not a good color complement with wood/leather tone either. Doesn't look like a comfy/cozy place to hang out. Maybe that's the intent?

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Are we confident or like super confident? Super confident in the rating (staff), less confident in the appropriation (electeds). Here's how the latter might work: (a) Trump names the project in his budget (least likely) (b) Congress reopens earmarks ("Article I Projects") and our bi-state delegatio...

Re: North Oak MAX

There won't be a single seat ride to Waldo or Plaza. It's coming from as far north as 152 and that makes no sense. It might run to Crown Center.

The most likely express through the urban core is a Plaza/Union Station airport express at a premium price.

I saw some people doing work at the southern corner where the wine bar was supposed to be. Anyone want to check the permits and see if anything is going on or if they were just scouting?
Nothing with a McGee address in that block for the last six months.
