TKC EXCLUSIVE & BREAKING NEWS QUOTE!!! THE SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST AND NO SPECIFICS!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR ATTRACTS SECRET BIZ!!!
Let's finish tonight with a bit of hope for change in Kansas City but without any significant details.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY 4TH DISTRICT COUNCIL LADY JAN MARCASON HAS BEEN TOUTING NEW BIZ DRAWN TO DOWNTOWN BECAUSE OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR BUT SHE CAN'T PROVIDE ANY NAMES!!!
Still, she seemed happy to at least try and answer a simple question . . .
Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Attracts Secret Biz
Here's a transcript for TKC Internet denizens with crappy speakers . . .
Council Lady Jan Marcason: "There are developers . . . Somebody just said, (Councilman) Jim (Glover) was just telling me that a real estate company has clients that want to be in the Power & Light building because of the Streetcar. We've had several businesses that want to redevelop properties along the streetcar line. We can't name them because they need to protect their ability to make a good deal."
Council Lady Marcason is probably referring to the KCP&L Building they're trying to sell off . . . So new tenants could be a good thing but CLEARLY we'll have to wait awhile for names to send out greeting card messages.
Still . . .
THIS QUICK INTERVIEW ONCE AGAIN PROVES THAT HOPE FOR NEW KANSAS CITY BIZ BY WAY OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR IS SKETCHY AT BEST!!!
Meanwhile, existing biz people Downtown have voiced their outrage over the plan via lawsuit. But hipsters, corporate sponsors and politicos simply don't seem to want to accept the fact that this tragic plan is off track and doesn't suit Kansas City's transit needs.
And all of this has inspired tonight's playlist . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday Night.
