TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY RESTARTS NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT FIGHT WITH 'LISTENING' SESSION!!!



Now that Mayor Sly and his corporate consultant cronies have $800-MILLION for pet pet projects . . . Just as we predicted, the fight for a new single-terminal airport is underway.

To wit . . .

THANKS TO TKC TIPSTERS FOR INTERCEPTING AND SHARING THIS CITY HALL MEMO INVITING "LEADERS" TO PROVIDE AIRPORT FEEDBACK!!!

Meanwhile, over and over again, the public as told Mayor Sly & Council "NO" on the airport and a pause in the campaign revealed a much.

With the election out of the way, here's a look at the text of recent dox beyond cleaned up media hype.

Request for Neighborhood Input for Future KCI Upgrades

Dear Kansas City, Missouri, neighborhood leader:

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Pat Klein and I am the Director of Aviation for the City of Kansas City, Missouri, Aviation Department.

We are asking residents to weigh in directly on the next step in the planning process for any potential upgrades at Kansas City International Airport. Feedback from residents will be gathered through a series of listening sessions hosted by business, neighborhood and community groups.

The listening sessions will be an open forum for residents to discuss their thoughts and concerns about the airport with Aviation Department leadership, and will include a short presentation to bring everyone up-to-date on previous planning efforts. Information gathered through community listening sessions will directly influence the terminal facility planning process and will be shared with City Council members.

For ease of logistics, the listening session should be added to the top of the agenda of regularly scheduled Kansas City, Missouri, neighborhood group or homeowners association meetings in a non-residential gathering place such as a clubhouse, meeting hall or community center. The number of attendees should be greater than 10. We ask that you or your organization or homeowners association handle all meeting logistics and notifications. We are able to use your group’s projector to display content on group-provided screens or walls, but are also able to bring a projector if need be.

Aviation Department leadership is able to attend existing neighborhood meetings beginning the week of April 17, 2017 and continuing through the summer of 2017. Background information and a form to book your group can be found at http://flykci.com/newsroom/ terminal-master-plan/ or you may book through John Holland at John.Holland@kcmo.org or (816) 243-3115.

We at the Aviation Department welcome you and your community’s opinions. If you so desire, we will come to you to do so. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Patrick Klein
Director of Aviation / Assistant City Manager

They're going to need more tits flown in to get this campaign up and flying.

Face it, folks. We're going to get a single terminal airport, an extended toy train line, a downtown convention hotel, more TIF projects, higher taxes and bills for services and whatever else Sly and company decides they need, whether we want/need it or not. Their attitude is "don't like it, move. Someone else will take your place".

We will get the higher taxes and bill for sure. Airport won't happen anytime soon, nobody has the money and the Fed's aren't going to pony up for that.

Sure the airport is next. Sly and his circus have figured out if the voters were stupid enough and boughtour 800 million tax scheme they go for the airport hook line and sinker.

Fck it, try 2 dazzle us with a new airport. Can they convert the current airport into a arboretum with a Great Plains safari.

You do understand that the airport is funded off of airport user funds right? There is no tax payers money going into the airport right now. They're trying to make it easy for the actual airlines and the airlines have all been requesting a single terminal for awhile now. Who ever this idiot so wrote this is a moron
