Was in town yesterday and the city is looking great. Top two things on my list. Streetcar and do something with 480 through downtown.

$290 million park/riverfront revitalization ... it's updating Gene Leahy Mall, Heartland of America Park, and Lewis and Clark Landing, which personally I think are pretty cool spaces already today, but there are some great improvements happening with this, including hiding the railroad tracks which have historically separated downtown from the riverfront and making for a space which can host concerts/large public events. A lot of private funding, city will only need to put up $50 million.

Omaha already had a good connection to the river, this will make it tremendous! Wish KC could at least do a similar cover of the train tracks on the river bank.
