Kansas City Insider: I'm calling BS on this one
I want the Streetcar to succeed. It cost way too much, and is not needed, but the darn thing is up and chugging along through parked car after parked car, and so I wish it all the success our leaders at City Hall have promised.
With that said, I've got to call B.S. on their latest pronouncement of success. They site a "recent survey". The question they point to for all the congratulatory back-slapping is:
Have you seen a change in revenue this year over the same time period last year?
And they use this chart as the survey's success centerpiece, showing 80% of the businesses had increases (yeah ! Go Sly-team).
What they FAIL to mention, is that last year ALL THE STREETS were torn up, parking was a nightmare and business on the Streetcar line were being driven out of business because construction lasting 24 months longer than what City Hall promised. What they didn't ask was how was business PRIOR to any construction.
Their survey "success" is a little like asking a Holocaust survivor the year after being released if they're happier now from a year ago and failing to mention where they were in one of the camps the previous year.
It's hard to take the City leaders seriously when they continually blow sunshine up our back side and then tell us they are doing things to make things "great again"...
