TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN STREETCAR DEVELOPMENT GUIDE DEBUTS FIRST ON TKC!!!
Groundbreaking for the Toy Train streetcar is tomorrow but right now we've got FIRST LOOK at a bit of propaganda that will comprise Kansas City streetcar cheerleader talking points.
To wit . . .
FIRST ON TKC: CHECK THE KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN STREETCAR DEVELOPMENT GUIDE!!!
Among the many exaggerations, outright lies and fuzzy math. This statement leads the way:
“The streetcar serves as a catalyst for economic development and aims to support a livable, walkable and economically and environmentally sustainable downtown,” according to the report. “Creating a strong physical connection between the streetcar neighborhoods sets the stage for a strong downtown community through supporting existing and new business, improving livability and expanding the cultural environment.”
Like it or not, it's a bold economic theory that's risking BILLIONS worth of Kansas City taxpayer cash.
And we've got the FIRST COPY thanks to TKC TIPSTERS who realize this is the only venue for debate on the topic that is not dominated by City Hall hype machine or so many crooked Council dudes and their consultants.
