Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

Can they possibly be this brazen stupid? If you had the votes, just quietly go forward. Whatever votes they thought they had will surely shrink away. The people who are behind this have done themselves no favors along the way and come across as incredibly unlikable and out of touch. Not to mention t...

Re: OPUS at Broadway Blvd and Westport Road

I don't see how it would be any different from living next to PnL or any of the apartments that already surround westport that are full.

Re: OPUS at Broadway Blvd and Westport Road

Re: Restoration of City Control Over KCPD

But in reality, both their budgets will continue to devour the general fund unabated because neither has ever been held accountable for how they spend money they receive.

How does a KCFD tax influence what KCPD gets to do?
If KCFD needs less of the general fund because they have another sole purpose tax, KCPD will sop up what KCFD no longer uses.

Blame for this goes to the council. They slid this onto the ballot with no public discussion or outreach.

Re: Bike Lanes

The other day I spoke with someone works at a bike shop. He said they sold more bikes in the past 30ish days then they typically do in a year. Apparently, most non-high end bikes are on back order across the country. I've seen a noticeable uptick in people riding around my neighborhood. Of particula...

Re: COVID19

Where can you get antibody testing?

My family had a round of flu like symptoms with lots of coughing in late Feb that tested negative for flu strains. Asked about the possibility of Corona, but was told they would/could not test.

Re: 13th and Grand tower

The commercial real estate company wants to build a 10-story, 320,000-square-foot building as soon as it can land tenant commitments to occupy half of the tower's square footage, he said.
