Looks like there is one coming to Waldo, KC Star had an article but couldn't see it. I'm assuming the old Wendy's spot on Wornall

Re: Brookside

The whole thing is overkill and creates more issues than it solves. Connecting the trail is a nice idea, but not at the cost of change this requires.

I'd like to see the overgrown "natural" corner at Border Star turned into something productive more than anything.

Re: Brookside

Language aside, the neighborhood does not want all of the traffic coming south on Brookside Blvd funneling directly south to Brookside Road. This is likely what will happen. Brookside Rd will get more traffic that would normally jog to Wornall and there is currently very little traffic on it and la...

Re: Brookside

While we would lose the tennis courts :roll: I like the realignment Brookside BLVD north of Meyer with Brookside BLVD south of Meyer. Much cleaner intersection and allows for center medians. Would also get a nice little park. There is no Brookside Blvd south of Meyer. It is Brookside Road and it is...

Re: Academie Lafayette

AL middle school (6-8) is at Armour. When fully phased in both Cherry and Oak will be K-5. If you are outside the preference zone, the lottery assigns a location. You do not get to pick. So far we are happy with AL kindergarten. Some aspects seem a bit disorganized at times, but I think the campus s...

Re: Westport

Would like to see St. Lukes vacate all of their property north of 43rd. Plenty of space for a huge garage where they just tore down the building no SE corner of 43rd & Wornall.

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

Did Wornall even connect through the plaza between Ward Parkway and 47th St? Seems strange it stops at Ward Parkway and starts back up a couple blocks east.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

There is also the large grass lot on 44th and Main owned by American Century (wasn't that supposed to become a sculpture garden?). I know that is a little disconnected from the Plaza. I really think the east side of Mill Creek Park could be reconfigured and given some attention so that it would int...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Looks like Google Fiber has raised price of TV service for new customers or upgrades from $60/month to $90/month. With the $10 box fee, price could be double what it was at launch. I wonder how long before Google gets out of the TV side and just offers internet. Market is moving that way anyway and ...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Hmm, they raised TV box from $5 to $10/mo. That must be new to new customers, I'm still showing $5/mo on my bill. Have heard they have tested TV to Chromecast but not sure if they'll release it. After 2 years renting you own the TV boxes and can sell to someone else, meaning you could also buy from...

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

I cannot believe Murray's couldn't be sold for more as a going concern vs auction of the equipment.

They could have doubled or tripled business with a few tweaks, including better hours.

Not sure the elimination of sidewalk special assessments is going to be a selling point to all of those who have already paid to replace sidewalks on their streets.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Doing nothing _is_ the best option. But all sorts of canards have been dribbled into the press in order to try to shoot down that best option. (Old plumbing; "tight" radius at the horseshoe terminals; security holdups; new de-icing equipment). Exactly. What we have works. Something will eventually ...
