Re: Companies moving downtown

I wouldn't cry if they bulldozed their current building (or the one across the street). Neither of those buildings are great by any means, but i think 2 Pershing is the more egregious of the two. It has full-on suburban office park architecture and planning, being just a giant forbidding featureles...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

There are about 7 afternoon weekday games a year. Attendance is typically between 5-10k for those games. Any uptick in attendance would be from people already working downtown. Non issue. I doubt the IRS would open their garages, however, since those buildings are unoccupied during baseball season ...

Let's be more realistic:

135 parking spots at 2.5 people per car = 338 people
And how many residents will there be? Residents that will go to old settlers days and restaurants in that area. I'm guessing it will be more than 338.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Just doing some quick calc and it's about a mile to everything by foot. Boulevard Brewery, Jack Stack, East 31st, Linwood Plaza. About the same walk as Kauffman to Adams Mark. It would probably do more for Midtown than Downtown. Certainly would do a lot to bring them together. Kind of a hub point fo...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Telling you guys. This is the best spot. 1. Repurposes underused and difficult parkland. 2. Close to public transportation. 3. Unprecedented city views. 4. Doesn't eat up prime development land for a seasonal use. 5. Solid NE orientation. https://i.imgur.com/qiaquY1.jpg And it's already a ballfield!

Re: Downtown Parking Enforcement

All parking tickets should have a map of downtown parking on the back. And maybe stats about how many parking spots are downtown.

I didn't realize homelessness was happening in rural/suburban areas. Thought it was just in the major cities
We had/have a homeless problem in Lee's Summit. It's everywhere.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

just another example of our inconvient airport that people just accept as okay and will be surprised how much better the new terminal works. although my guess is there will be whining about having to walk across the arrivals car lanes to get to the buses. My guess would be that the Venn diagram of ...

Re: Downtown Zoning

The person complaining will have to allow someone in their residence* to measure the sound level to prove you are in violation of the ordinance. Until that happens you don't have anything to worry about beyond trying to be a good neighbor. *Possibly at there property line. Not sure how the ordinance...

I don't like dogs where I drink because far too many end up sniffing my crotch or food or barking (this goes for kids too) but bar-k is obviously a huge success and I'm happy for them and dog owners.

Re: Downtown Zoning

A good acoustician will first determine if you are in violation or not. They will be familiar with the noise ordinances in your municipality and will do a site visit to determine noise levels. Secondly they will make recommendations for mitigation if required. And they won't be programming recommend...

Re: Do we need to stop building with concrete?

In addition to the carbon footprint of concrete, we are actually going to run out of sand at some point. Desert and beach sand cannot be used as an aggregate as it is too smooth. Must be river sand. Big lawsuit against a proposed sand mine in Kansas right now. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lauriewink...
