Kansas City Parking Reservations?!?!?

KMBC reports things getting more exclusive inside the loop: "Kansas City leaders are exploring the idea of letting people reserve a downtown parking space if they attend concerts or other events."

Talk about visions of grandeur. Sorry KC but the traffic I've noticed lately is heading the other direction.

Maybe you should pay more attention. Downtown is the fastest growing 3 square miles in the metro.

Statistics can be fun.
When you start with ZERO and increase it by one, you've achieved a 100% increase.
There are 2.4 million people in the metro.
83% of them don't live in any part of KCMO.
Residential construction throughout the metro exceeds apartments in downtown KCMO.
If folks want to live downtown, that's great. But some epochal transformation of civilization it ain't.
And when the millenials age out, get married, and have families, they'll be looking for good schools, safe neighborhoods, and yards for the kids to play in.
"Vertical neighborhoods" will be sooo 2014!

Keep spite-wiching, 9:29. I'm sure the dream of the 80s is alive and well in your Poverland Oark culdesac, but in the real world, you have alreadybeen left behind.

Caleb's right, 9:29am.
And it's good to see that he can gtake a break at his new job to use the free WiFi to continue to weigh in on urban futurist issues.
That $40 million KCMO bond issue last year to extend sewer and water services into corn fields in the northland and provide residential construction for new homes for an estimated 70,000 new residents is a complete waste of money.
Those new folks will be sorry they didn't decide to rent downtown, just you wait and see!

Toy Sewers to nowhere. Sewers boondoggle undue unjust sewers why did I get to vote on that? They stole the PIAC $ to pay for sewers where no one lives. When will the sewers pay for themselves. These sewers are a drain on our resources. IF we didn't waste money on Toy Sewers to nowhere, we could keep fire stations open.
