Re: Lamp Post District - Mission, KS

Tidal Wave is all but done now. More notably, a road diet proposal for Johnson Drive to restripe from 4 lanes to 3 (with CARS funding) was on the Community Development agenda tonight.

Re: Best Local Trails

The “missing segment” that you refer to was due to the Parkville Boat Club not wanting to play ball. I think the new plan is to build a paved trail along 9 highway. The missing connector segment between the Missouri Riverfront Trail in Riverside and English Landing Park in Parkville is nearly compl...

Re: Best Local Trails

To be honest, I’m quite fond of the Indian creek trail, although some municipalities don’t maintain their sections as well as others, It’s an awesome trail for any type of distance. I've noticed this on maps. Is it good for cycling? Are there a lot of street crossings? Biking is the sport I'll be d...

Re: Lamp Post District - Mission, KS

That's good because I moved to Mission a few months ago and our parks range from almost non-existent grass squares to terrible. As it happens, I sit on the Parks, Recreation, and Trees commission (consists of citizens) and have at least a little bit of input as to how parks are maintained and impro...

Re: Twincreeks updated site plan

I've lived at 169 & 152 in the Northland as well as 135th & Pflumm in JoCo. Getting to/from the city from out south is soul crushing compared to the Northland drive. It's double the distance (although not always double the drive time), and IMO driving in outer Johnson County just plain sucks. It rea...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Bunch of workers showed up a week or two ago and took apart the crane. I think maybe they also repossessed some crated HVAC stuff that was on site but I'm not 100% sure of that. Sigh.

Re: Lamp Post District - Mission, KS

A preliminary development application was filed for the Mission Bowl site. The Planning Commission hearing will be 8/24 by Zoom. You can attend virtually or send written comments in advance. See missionks.org for details on that. A number of changes to the plan along with some new renderings. No big...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

City staff gave some more info about the financing pause on an unrelated Zoom call last evening. Apparently it is basically impossible to move the S.O. bonds right now due to interest rate restrictions and the covid-related fluctuations.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Gateway construction has been suspended for 30 days due to concerns about maintaining appropriate separation of personnel for the COVID-19 outbreak. In the last month, major interior work on the Cinergy building has been proceeding, and a big chunk of the garage structure has gone up. https://www.fa...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I don't know if I am looking at it correctly, but it looks like northbound 35 at the NW corner of the bluffs has the right land as the through lane and the 6th St/Broadway exit on the left? Looks that way to me. I think those woods are covering up a decent strip of land that might actually be prett...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

Nearby the Gateway & Mission Bowl, City of Mission has ~$5MM of bond money ready to go to fix the final stretch of Rock Creek where significant chunks of property have been eroding into the creek. Unfortunately, Wendy's is playing hard to get on the minor easements required to do the repairs [1]. Af...
