What would need to happen in order to shut down main to cars and only allow cross traffic every few blocks. I know it’s unlikely, but what steps would need to be taken

@davekcmo

Would it be possible to get a “bicycle park and ride” at the UMKC stop? Maybe a few bike racks under a shelter?

I'll do my best! There's already a bike share kiosk across 51st street.

If only a quarter of the 2 million people currently riding the streetcar each year walk from Main to see the museums and the landscaped campus of a working college of art and design, it will change the dynamics of the Rockhill and Southmoreland neighbourhoods.

What lawsuit? DeJanes's lawsuit to stop the streetcar's expansion? Or did somebody finally file a lawsuit about DeJane's use of the ATA's land that I missed?
From the "Streetcar Opposition" thread:

Case #1716-CV02051

Hint: ATA is suing DeJanes
Long followup.
There's no judgement information but she filed an appeal in Jan 2019. So she clearly lost.

The appeal is case WD82459

At this point KCATA has an extention for their filing until July

So the original petition was filed against her in Jan 2017 and the case is still working it's way through the courts 2.5 years later.

The judge should have never let her waste the courts time in the first place.. especially being that she's an attorney.. but it is what it is. That docket is longer and more drawn out than most legitimate issues. What a waste. Basically Dejanes and her husband illegally and knowingly seized a FORTY FOOT DEEP section of public land and built a new fence around it so they could eventually challenge the ownership of the land in court and take possession of it by basically claiming the "I've squatted for so long that it's mine" exception.. and they nearly won. Lucky their idiot judge did something right, after plenty of errors. Unfortunately they're appealing and will likely abuse the system again to get what they want. Read the ruling that's being appealed here. https://www.courts.mo.gov/fv/c/KCATA+v. ... i=14280198

Adverse possession has a long and controversial history in the courts. However, there has never been a case where adverse possession was granted for public land. It is one of the universally accepted exclusions. Filing this claim, as an attorney, is preposterous and she should face steep court costs and be disbarred.
