Re: Westport

That might be what kills SZ. That 7-11 seems like a huge step down from their current location.

135th Street in Leawood has certain guidelines to follow.
Also, Leawood's internal processes make it possibly the most challenging municipality in the metro to develop in. Can't fault anyone for avoiding building there.

I know this is the internet and all, but do we really have to spend pages and pages of posts arguing over conjectures?

Re: Troost developments

Peter Cassel is coming to speak at my neighborhood association this month. I assume it's to talk about the Armour and Troost development. IIRC the rezoning to UR got stuck at PZ&E last year (Shields), so maybe they think they can navigate the rest of the council approval process now?

Didn’t the city council just vote the reduce the power of churches and schools in by-the-drink alcohol approvals?

Sure, maybe. But the only way we'll know for certain is by restoring local control. :D

Re: Restoration of City Control Over KCPD

^Yes. IIRC none of the recommendations from that audit the city did a few years ago were ever implemented.

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

We were at the Nelson this weekend and every time I’m there I’m delighted at how a Claus bleeping Oldenburg sculpture has become a symbol for the whole city. The side effect of decades of mediocre sports has forced KC to find its identity in other places. I hope KC keeps that mentality. The Royals n...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

FWIW, the Star's editorial board says vote no on Question 5: https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/editorials/article236920148.html In 2018, city activists and several East Side ministers said they wanted to rectify the mistake by renaming The Paseo for King. The boulevard, they said, was less tarnish...

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Is it just me or has the Star become nearly unreadable over the last few months? It seems like every article is geared towards generating whatever controversy they can to sell more papers. Even the most innocuous stuff is being turned into weird conspiracies (the closing of restaurants in Lawrence ...

Re: KU-MU rivalry reborn?

Part of me is excited to see them play again. Part of me is sad there will never be a meaningful game between them ever again (unless they meet in the NCAA tournament). This is exactly how I feel about this. It was more fun for me when it meant something. This just seems like a version of the Mizzo...

Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

If you think I'm defending any of this, you're mistaken. As I've said a couple of times, this process can be a mess and assessment increases can still be justified. Both things can be true.

Notice also that the conversation has shifted from 'No goddamn way!' to 'Cap the increases at 14% per year!'
