HOW much more in taxes can any Kansas Citian accept before there is a tax rebellion??

If Sanders and crew manage to trick people into this without robust public debate, the taxpayers are basically screwed.

Didn't they learn their lesson from Translational Research? Citizens are tired of giving these crooks more money. From a convicted felon to a joke of a drug warrior these guys get nothing from me except a pink slip.

Will all of us (citywide) in the proposed TDD get juicy property tax breaks on our homes and businesses. Like all the downtown dwellers supporting this whole boondoggle are getting?

Of all the jobs in the metro, only 16% of them are in downtown KCMO.
So Sanders is contemplating spending $59 million for the right-of-way, then how much for train acquisition, then operations and maintenance? To get some small percentage of the 16% downtown?
And this from a county government that year after year can't even get property appraisal and tax bills right?
All aboard.

when the toy train isnt a toy anymore and is a whole system linking most of the jobs and residents in the most populous and densest county in the metro, what will i howl about on tkc??????????????????

8:54 Densest is a good description. I will be howling with laughter because maybe by then you will have a job and be the one paying for it. Nah, what the hell was I thinking. For you it will be cheap rent.

I think this is a good idea. There, there's my confession.

16% of the jobs are DT, which is a higher concentration than ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE METRO, you fukcing dolt.

51% of metro jobs are in KCMO, and most of those are on the proposed streetcar line. The commuter rail proposal catches another 15 percent, meaning the system would connect about 2/3 of the jobs in the metro with the biggest and densest population.
