Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Am surprised Bird doesn't place morning nests in neighborhoods with a lot of apartments like along Armour, 20s/Gilham, River Market West, deeper into Volker/Roanoke, etc. Some days they plant around Columbus Park, Quality HIll but not consistently. The NE downtown loop (View, Metropolitan buildings...

Re: DST and Kansas City

Are there any investment funds that just invest in just local Kansas City companies? Might be a good way to encourage growth in companies with a strong local civic presence and be a tool to fight off negative outside influence like what happened with DST. I wonder if the city or local investment fi...

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

Apparently the first Drury proposal was to remodel the building, then they came back with this.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Ditto the digital subscription. I wish it meant there were no ads, but you really should support local print because the TV people are vacuous and incapable of anything more than a few talking heads and police scanner retreads.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Ha! We can all track Dave. Interesting tidbit. My borrowed Lime wouldn't power on this morning. I called my contact and they tried to reset it remotely several times to no avail. It finally "rebooted" this evening and went through an interesting little start-up sequence I wasn't expecting. Chimes a...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

One article I've seen implied they decide on a day to day basis. Unlikely they'll put any out if a snowstorm expected. :) Bird's interim operating agreement with KCMO states: Inclement Weather. On days where inclement weather (rain or snow) is anticipated, Company will halt its Shared Active Transp...

Re: OFFICIAL: East Village downtown neighborhood

Alternative explanation: The entire area is wrapped up in a major master plan like the South Loop, so if you're not the South Loop developer you would not invest in your properties or new development for fear of being condemned.

No new bridge. CCROW south of Volker. Don't expect expansion south of 51st for a very long time. It's money thing.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Correct.

Coming soon: A confirmation of this expansion's submission into the federal grant process (deadline is September 28). Congress continues to rebuff the administration's attempt to shutter/de-fund the program.
