QUIKTRIP STAYS WINNING: IS KANSAS CITY KILLING WESTPORT?!?!



They call it a compromise but given a so many sketchy developments schemes without any real effort to address increasing crime . . . This Midtown Kansas City house of cards seems to have a shaky future.

Today's City Hall transcription . . .

The QuikTrip is one of a number of recent development changes proposed for Westport that have raised alarms about traffic, pedestrian and motorist safety, and crowding in the urban neighborhood.

The council unanimously endorsed a plan Thursday in which QuikTrip’s pumps will be on the west side of Mercier Street and the store on the east side of the street, with the company having control and maintenance responsibility for the street, which it said it needed for its parking lot and to keep the street to its standards.

But the plan provides public right of way on Mercier, and it will continue to function as a city street, addressing the neighborhood’s concerns about losing public access.

And so . . .

WILL SPECULATIVE KANSAS CITY DEVELOPMENT AND RISING CRIME KILL HISTORIC WESTPORT???

To be fair, the current and new QT features one of the better and most convenient restaurants throughout the entertainment district.

You decide . . .

Westport will survive.

It has been through worse. At least they did not block off Mercier.

City Hall sided with QuikTrip and not the neighborhood and voters who put them in office to protect their interests from this kind of Okie suburban highway shit.

LMAO classic

If you get your pizza at QT, you need professional help. This place is a blight, nothing more.

Even the news media is lying out of their asses today about what has been going on with this. Of course that is what they are paid to do.

These are the same neighborhoods that always vote for every tax increase and think more government is good. Now you find out who big government really works for.

Nothing that can't be fixed by adding a few shipping container "luxury" apartment complexes and having a few more murders.
The QT is the least of Westport's problems.

This is going to be a disaster for traffic and other small businesses around the area.

A damn shame that my councilwoman Jolie Justus didn't listen to our complaints!

Westport needs Quik Trip. Where else are all the homos going to buy lube and rubbers? I can't believe how many homos live there, it's just disgusting.

Jolie Justus is a lawyer. Jolie doesn't care one bit about neighborhoods. When you get a termed out Jeff City democrat, what do you expect. She screwed Crossroads with the liquor rule change. Now the West Plaza neighborhood. Jolie big target is the airport. So watch out KC.

What's killing Westport ? Killings , rapes , car jacking , mugging , robbers and the spreading of diversity and inclusion by the inner city youth scholar's hood rats. Quick Trip will be a great target for shoplifting and assaulted normal American human beings that get hammered and need munchies and shitty gas ¡!

If they have a big doughnut case and keep it well stocked it will improve the police presence in Westport. If only they weren't too chickenshit to go after criminals the way they go after doughnuts.

All that really matters is that the big new Q.T. will be selling liquor and ciggeretts and condoms and the morning after pill ¡! Maybe they will also be selling ammo and switch blades ?¿

Westport is bareback country; try it sometime. You'll like it.

Westport and most Kansas City voters are stupid. That's equally classic!

I'll tell you this, it's time to clear out all of those house and make way with some more quickie marts and chain taco stands.

That is how we win the future in good ol Kansas City.

what a nightmare sad to see that they're turning westport into a gas station for hipsters.

I know it is sad BUT what other company is taking a chance and expanding and growing in Westport?

Pretty soon it is only gonna be QT, Home Depot, Target and Walmarts forever.
