TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! PREZ TRUMP BUDGET KILLS STREETCAR EXPANSION AND NOW HOMELESS THREATEN KANSAS CITY BIZ ALONG DOOMED TOY TRAIN LOW RIDERSHIP ROUTE!!!
Despite the rigged, gerrymandered, secret vote coming up on April 5th . . . Prez Trump's new budget looks like it could effectively kill all hope for the proposed toy train streetcar extension. Tragically, the aftermath of this decision leaves a blighted and somewhat dangerous line for locals to confront.
To wit . . .
CHECK OUT THIS KICK-ASS TKC INSIDER TESTIMONY REGARDING CITY MARKET BIZ COPING WITH TOY TRAIN STREETCAR BLIGHT!!!
Here's the word . . .
"The top pic is from Google Street View of a building near 6th and Delaware along the streetcar line, that was recently sold to a developer in Denver."
"This pic is more recent and is referenced from the article above. Note the missing bench. Not mentioned in the article is that the bench was removed by the previous owner due to increased numbers of homeless people riding the streetcar, congregating nearby and harassing tenants in the building. One of the tenants recently relocated to different space downtown away from the streetcar."
And once again, despite so many assurances and promises from City Hall . . . The jobs, development and "economic engine" has yet to take hold along the toy train line even though so much of the development is already taxpayer subsidized.
You decide . . .
