TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NOBODY TALKED TO KANSAS CITY TRANSIT DISTRICT DENIZENS ABOUT THE TOY TRAIN!!!
This study was recently forwarded my way . . .
Transportation Technical Report Kansas City Downtown Streetcar Project
Nothing fantastic but here's an interesting statement that accompanies document.
To wit . . .
DOWNTOWN DENIZENS STILL CONTEND THAT KANSAS CITY STREETCAR STUDIES DIDN'T EVEN TALK TO LOCAL BIZ ON THE ROUTE!!!
Check the testimony . . .
"Interesting read. All of this was done without the input of the businesses that are affected. Take a look at your block. They've got mine all wrong. Pure propaganda. No one asked me how parking and business traffic would be impacted."
Again, supporters of the toy train want to brag about their community involvement but as more information comes out, it's clear that this vote was basically rammed down Kansas City's throat and all of the supporting information and effort came as a result of City Hall dictates WITHOUT much support from the community or stakeholders.
