More Kansas City Residents Making Time To Put KCI Single-Terminal Scheme On Notice



A great many flights are grounded in the snow this morning but that doesn't stop the push to prevent a single-terminal disaster . . .

Check it . . .

TKC EXCLUSIVE: AIRPORT ACTIVISTS ARE MOBILIZING TO BRING THEIR PROTEST TO UPCOMING AIRPORT MEETINGS!!!

Here's the slate that other media are burying to keep down public participation in light of a recent effort by Mayor Sly & Council to subvert a citizen initiative petition:

Airport Terminal Advisory Group announces public hearing schedule

The City of Kansas City, Mo.’s Airport Terminal Advisory Group announces that it will hold a series of public meetings to receive input on potential changes to Kansas City International Airport’s terminal configuration.

The public meeting schedule is as follows:

Monday, Feb. 10, 6-7:30 p.m.
Oak Park High School
825 N.E. 79th Terrace
Kansas City, MO 64118

Monday, Feb. 24, 6-7:30 p.m.
Robert J. Mohart Multipurpose Center
3200 Wayne Ave.

Thursday, March 20, 6-7:30 p.m.
Johnson County Community College
Polsky Theatre in the Carlsen Center
12345 College Blvd.
Overland Park, KS 66210

Individuals testifying will be asked to sign in with their name and address and limit their comments to two minutes. This will allow everyone a chance to provide input. Individuals also may submit written testimony to KCITerminalAdvisoryGroup@kcmo.org. Comments will be reviewed by advisory group members and will be entered into the public record.

Individuals interested in learning more about KCI’s operations can view the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsPYlHmlmRc (Preview) . It features a behind-the-scenes tour of Kansas City International Airport taken by members of the advisory group as they learned about the airport’s infrastructure, security and other operational issues.


The advisory group comprises community members from across the metro area appointed by Mayor Sly James. Members have been meeting twice a month since July to study airport issues and learn more about airport operations and the potential impact of any change.

The group expects to make a recommendation in April 2014 to Mayor James and the City Council. The City Council must approve any new plans for the terminal configuration, and the public must vote on any change requiring issuing bonds to finance the project.

Any person with a disability who desires reasonable accommodation to attend this meeting may contact the City’s 311 Call Center at 311 or 816-513-1313, or for TTY, 816-513-1889, or by email at 3-1-1.Call.Center@kcmo.org.

Media inquiries may be directed to the group’s co-chairs, Bob Berkebile at 816-783-1550 or David Fowler at 816-531-7000.

As we ponder our navals today in the cabin, we should runimate on this important question that can and probably will effect us all.

Is Bruce Jenner crazier than Britney Spears?

Talk amongst yourselves.

I can make both sides happy. Just move all the traffic into terminal B. From what I've seen, it'll fit.

Your suggestion makes perfect sense, but those aren't the "two sides" who are important.
The folks who count are the bond attorneys, labor unions, construction firms, planners, consultants, and all the rest of the folks who hope to cash in, move along, and leave whatever is left for the public to have to live with.
When the Star editorial recommends paying more attention to the consultant hired by airport management than to the airline that provides most of the flights at KCI, it's not too hard to see what's up.
The $1.3 billion estimate is only a starting point.

Black people are silent on this issue for KC because their dumb asses rarely take planes (aside from swiping at them from skyscrapers while holding white women)
