Re: Short Term Rentals

The audit was disappointing. I don't see how the city getting an extra 2mil a year to waste changes anything. I just don't see how taxing them will prevent larger investors from buying up a bunch of homes to run airbnbs from.

Re: Politics

It’s the sole reason Elon bought Twitter. And it’s imploding, as we all knew it would. I'm not sure whos sock puppet account this is, but you are an absolute embarrassment. To say that Musk bought Twitter to appease the political right, is, just stupid. Extremist idiots like you undermine everythin...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

Stumbled upon this video from Atlanta about what they’ve done to try and solve the problem, maybe some of these ideas can be brought here? State line might get in the way, but I’m sure there’s other venues that could possibly be used? https://youtu.be/kRbXt-LVg50 We had KCIR until people built hous...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

I’m not sure why the solution everyone jumps to is arresting people after these things happen, and not, say, redesigning the roads to discourage these things. It’s not just street races and donuts, people take dangerous U turns in the middle of broadway or grand all the time, because these streets ...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

For NBA, nothing's gonna relocate until the 2030's most likely. It will basically just come down to whether a Mahomes-led ownership group beats out a competitor. Which I think it will. KC by the 2030's is gonna be amazing too. This talking point needs to go away. https://m.basketnews.com/news-18089...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Anyways I’m very interested to understand how we are going to afford $2B for Royals, $2B for chiefs and not raise more taxes. Would love a regional initiative but just a hard sell. They'll have to figure it out. I won't vote for it at least. Royals should line up their investors and Chiefs should r...

Re: New Development on 39th st?

On another note, a lot of general W 39th Street talk get tossed over to the thread under KC Scene so it's good to have a general 39th Street thread more oriented to housing/development because I think we'll be seeing more of it in the next few years. Do you know what happened with that project that...

Re: Politics

I thought it was interesting how overall younger voters helped carry Dems in the midterms yet something like only 27% of people under 27 voted. Which tells me Abortion really really screwed the R's and I'm wondering how do they get some of the young vote to turn out for them in 24'?

It's very hard for the incumbent president to lose unless he's a complete moron (Trump) even then the election basically came down to 44,000 votes in a few states. Nobody will beat Biden if inflation drops/unemployment remains where it is. Let's say it doesnt- Trump still has no chance but if someon...
