TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDER ON FIGHTING THE FUTURE: STILL TWO CHANCES TO STOP THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
The Kansas City Toy Train streetcar has made it this far by subverting Democracy and keeping citywide voters far away from the process.
Tragically, this mission has been accomplished by disguising Staubio and his hipster friends as activists instead of yuppies desperately searching for graphic design and marketing contracts.
However, there is a bit of good news . . .
A KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDER ADVISES US THAT THERE'S STILL A CHANCE TO STOP THE EXPANSION OF THE PRICEY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
Check the deets:
"Remember their are two chances to stop the streetcar expansion. The first should be in August when their is a vote to establish the TDD. The second would be November when the sales and special property tax assessment would be voted on. One question is will these be forever taxes?"
Sadly, part deux of this project is treated as an inevitability without giving much consideration to a public vote.

And here's the word from more PR hacks paid to advocate . . .
"With the start of the construction phase comes the relaunch of the Downtown KC Streetcar website, www.kcstreetcar.org. This website is extremely user friendly with an updated construction schedule; an interactive streetcar map with detailed construction information and traffic updates for each of the 12, 3-block segments; links to the latest project news and updates; and project photos and milestones."
