This is the first look inside the new 40,000-square-foot supermarket. Unlike the Aldi store, which opened just to the south on Prospect, this new store offers full service shopping, stocking more than 50,000 items.

I drove by something I didn't remember hearing about this week. A new project directly south of the Aldi's at ~9th and Paseo.

I think the sign said HUD Section 3 housing development.

I believe that would be the Quinlan Place apartments. Part of the Paseo Gateway redevelopment.

There's an editorial in the Star about this. Evidently the moneys have been accumulating successfully but there hasn't been a solid consensus on how to spend.

Really hope this is used effectively and does not turn into a "too many cooks in the kitchen" type thing between various interests.

Thanks. I’m abroad and hadn’t seen that article. Not that I would have read something on the editorial page if I was in town. The Star’s new editorial board has taken a turn for the woke that I’m not interested in. Local muck racking and trolling of the Abouhalkah variety I could stomach, laugh at, even appreciate. The shit they are spewing now is the most basic bourgeois attempts to translate internet-ese that they can find. True cowtown shit.

This committee should take their time and do it right. No one wants another Citadel or 18th & Vine Part 1. Between Prospect MAX and Smart City 2.0, there is already a lot of focus on that corridor in the near-term.

I’m very excited about Prospect MAX. I know next to nothing about Smart City (1 or 2.0, fo that matter). I’ll reserve judgement on the center city tax: Show-Me time.

Me, too! You'll see tangible evidence before end of 2018 at Petticoat & Main and 12th & Grand. Those will be the first completed stations, and both have level boarding!

The Star piece pointing out they decided to focus on jobs seems like a good one as long as it's not a Kansas-style jobs program where the money is given before jobs are made or a Full Employment Council program where KS businesses get incentives for hiring MO residents.

An eco dev program where a company must have a net increase in wages compared to the year before and the office must be based out of he impact zone to receive help could be a good one.

I would especially love to see a focus on jobs for teenagers (15-19). In terms of impact this age is where they're highly likely to commit to a life of crime and it directly helps this age group build up a positive job history. I can imagine a program where if a teen gets a job at partner businesses and keeps it and works a minimum number of hours both the business and teenager gets something extra (part of the incentive must raise their wage, part covers business cost).

A program where 1000 teens get $1 extra per hour could do a lot of good.

The new Sunfresh grocery store at Linwood and Prospect is open.

KC celebrates opening of new East Side grocery store

...
The Sun Fresh Market in the Linwood Shopping Center opened to speeches by Kansas City officials, performances by local drum and drill teams, and gift card giveaways. The $13 million grocery store project is the anchor of a revitalized retail project on Prospect Avenue between 31st Street and Linwood Boulevard. Two other retailers, Gen X Clothing and Rainbow, also has been upgraded as part of the project.
