I suspect it's a lot of the 65-thousand visitors per day who just decide to stay.

I think a lot of negro criminals move here because the police won't catch them and Jean Baker Petermunch won't prosecute them

Well, this is actually consistent with a trend of young people and others wanting to live downtown nationwide.

Maybe the downtown amenities are working to attract people.

Take that streetcar opponents!

Yeah, it's more likely Sprint Center, Kauffman, and the like, but they're all part of a critical mass threshold needed to create a livable urban zone.

Build the convention hotel too!

The great majority of population growth in KCMO is north of the river, not in the downtown utopia.
That's why the city put in water and sewer lines to support a potential growth of 70,000.
And that single-family residential construction, if it comes about, will actually be placed on the property tax roles, unlike 99% of the downtown "projects", which will mostly turn out to be financially unsustainable.
PR and hype may look great in the short term, but facts always turn out to be stubborn things.

So Funny

remember KCMO hires employees that can't count in the 1st place

they attended that KCMO KCPS School system is why , which is a disaster as most of you know

so, like the phony fake street car TOY TRAIN numbers

they count every citizens like 20 times to arrive at their illusionary numbers !!!!

You know Crazy Clown...these are us Census Numbers, not Kansas City city hall numbers. Many Kansas City employees live in the Northland in the North Kansas City, Parkhill,Liberty and Platte County school districts.

Could we have the racial/ethnic breakdown with those statistics. I'm pretty sure that would speak volumes
