OFFICIAL: New Westport tenants

I think Westport would become much more of a local nightspot if the discotheques went elsewhere, and I agree heartily that they would fit well downtown. What draws the people from outside the relatively immediate neighborhood is not Buzzard Beach or AC's Garage. People come from Lee's Summit and Len...

Late Night Helicopters

I am not sure if I have heard enough helicopters in Midtown to be used to them yet(not like police and ambulance sirens), but I honestly just don't hear them that much. I could have thick walls or something, but all I ever hear outside is the occasional fireworks show, planes flying over head, siren...

More arguments against a hub airport

I have flown SW 6 times since 9/11(it being my favorite airline, hands down), and getting in and out of security at KCI is fine. As for Denver's fares going up, such is life. The hub style is a dying breed, and that's fine with me. The solution should be another company(or transit method) coming in ...

I sure hope not. The 56 is the only one that I know of that runs really late, and the one that'll get me to work at 11 PM, if we move to where I think we're moving.

I think it looks interesting, but still ugly. I would hate to have a building that looks like that in my town.

Forum on growth and sprawl in Missouri

And in that time, if memory serves me, from last time I looked at the census site(I love it), KC itself only gained a bit over 6000 people, out of 193,000. Now, that's sprawl.

Grain Valley looks like it will be KC's next big suburb.

It's just the consuming nature of the sprawl cycle. Grain Valley will be a cookie-cutter suburb, with good schools and Old Navy shopping, and Odessa will be on the drawing board, while KC, Independence, Raytown, and Blue Springs rot in the sprawl's wake.

Is Cordish Co. good for downtown?

Because it would need to be subsidized. To get people in JoCo to vote for the tax increase, some other deal-sweetener, like adding lanes to I-35, would have to happen. Once that cookie gets handed to the people, they will _never_ ride the train.

Oh... and I like Union Station. it's cool.

Lee's Summit Republican against transit tax...

I understand that often public transit needs a significant capital investment to get going, but that's initial. However, there is no reason that daily running and maintenance should be publicly subsidized. That proves that it has already failed. Other things need to change before countless millions ...

Re: Downtowner bus is gone and no one cares

I think it's horrible when the ATA shuts down lines, especially ones that many people like, but the truth of the matter is that with the city's current favortism to individuals driving their own cars, the ATA doesn't stand a chance. Unfortunately, the greatest percentage of the ridership of the ATA ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

Well, as downtown KC continues to develop, it will become more and more of a pain in the butt to drive. When it eventually reaches critical mass, public transportation will be taken seriously(ie- commuter rail & bus lines,a nd maybe some day, in-city light rail will be justified. It isn't now). My b...
