Mission Gateway Stays Losing



A warning that residents of Mission, KS. probably shouldn't hold their breath waiting for an upcoming development . . .

Mission Gateway coming in ... 2016?

Money quote:

"Since acquiring and tearing down the old Mission Center Mall in 2005, Cameron Group LLC's Tom Valenti has talked a lot about the great things in store for the intersection of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Johnson Drive. But so far, all he has done is push some dirt around."

Looks like the cornfed rubes in this town got played for suckers again.
Tell us big exciting things are coming and we start forking over the cash without asking too many questions, such is our longing to be part of something big.

This site was perfectly fine before the demolished it. I thought the thing would be built and done by now. Too bad. The plans looks interesting. Live and shop at Walmart. Now, its just an eyesore.

I feel for business owners on Johnson Dr. They have taken a beating over a group of self serving public officials terrible decisions. Driveway tax-really???? It's a clear example of how developers wave big ideas and a few bucks at politicians and rest of us get screwed.

KICK THEM ALL OUT. Mission has become a Wyandotte County. Back room deals, out of control cops, city government forcing businesses to close. and stupid tax increases. Why do they need bigger, better streets when they've chased people away for years? Kansas has no storage of crazy and useless people making money off the suffering of others.
