Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

What outrageous cost? You dig the field, bury prebuilt garage forms and cover it up. Seems it'd be cheaper than building under a building for sure and likely cheaper than building up on an empty lot.

Re: Downtown KCK

The district will span from 6th Street to 9th Street, Nebraska Avenue, down to Barnett roughly. It will include this building. Apparently the owner is interested in restoring the building. Also it is a friggen crime the Huron Building got torn down. ... https://kchistory.org/image/huron-building?so...

Re: Katz on Main

Strange to see the whole back end opened up. It makes apparent that the entire site is not very large. Being at the terminus of Westport road I know this area is considered park of Wesport, but I would like to see a brand of its own along Main from 38th to 40th. Something like the Midtown Art Deco ...

They will probably never get rid of Broadway and there is really no reason to. But it should be modified, possibly raised to help level out the topography some and calmed. Broadway needs to be slowed and narrowed with added cycle tracks etc and they need to build bridges and or tunnels to connect b...

If that footprint is to be trusted, they also want to demo the next three buildings north of the corner cluster and displace Union Hill Animal Hospital, Ambrosi Bros. Cutlery, and Museo.

Re: Best Local Trails

Just heard that the MO Senate Appropriations Committee removed the $70 million in federal funding that could have been used to develop the 144-mile Rock Island corridor.
