TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STREET LIFE FAIL: GO BOND CASH FOR CROSSWALK REPAINT DENIED!!!



A quick slice of life for the Kansas City afternoon . . .

After voters approved TENS OF MILLIONS of cash for street and sidewalk repair . . .

KANSAS CITY PUTS CROSSWALK PAINTING ON HOLD DESPITE DEADLY SUMMER PEDESTRIAN CRASHES!!!

Here's a look at a reasonable Northland resident suggestion rejected:

Subject: Re: Request for Service to the Kansas City 311 Call Center

"Due to time and manpower constraints, Kansas City can only repaint a limited number of crosswalks per year. If the crosswalk in question is deemed to be to be high priority, it will be added to the list."

I'm curious how much time does it take to repaint a crosswalk?

If the city can find time to put paint over thermo plastic on a road to nowhere (see link below) there is no reason it can't find a couple of hours to repaint a crosswalk leading to an elementary school. Every kid deserves a safe route to shcool. Our city has major issues when we deny children safe routes to school. It is time for KCMO to do some soul searching!

An example of the trend . . .



You decide . . .

I really want to know what the city considers high priority if a school crosswalk is low priority.

GO Bonds are for infrastructure not maintenance. Try PIAC money.

Sly and the gang are too busy painting green boxes at intersections for the four people in all of KCMO who ride their bikes to work.
Streetcars, bikes, hi-tech kiosks, tech conferences...
Who can be concerned about the safety of the people who actually live here?
Priorities in KCMO just couldn't possibly be more upside down.

PIAC money is all well and good, BUT it takes 4 or 5 YEARS of asking for it before PIAC releases the funds for the project. Kansas City maintenance really sucks scummy pond water.

Absolutely agree with the PIAC comment, you have to basically beg them for any kind of consideration. They might as well be kings.

Get ready to kiss a lot of rings and more.

Lets see here,
One person
Pick-up truck
Four inch roller on a stick
5 gal pails of striping paint
6 traffic safety cones

Sounds to me the makings of at least 8 or so crosswalks a day painted.

City Hall would rather use that money for hiring companies that will back them on the new airport and toy train scams.

Sorry pedestrians you're on your own just like you are if going CCW for protecting yourself from a crime.
