TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION!!! KANSAS CITY STREETCAR EXTENSION TO BERKLEY RIVERFRONT PARK: RIGGED DEVELOPMENT SCHEME OR TOY TRAIN TO NOWHERE?!?!
Council and toy train cheerleaders seem enthusiastic about yet another toy train extension without Kansas City voter consent.
There are interesting plans that have been recently endorsed.
But one question lingers . . .
BERKLEY RIVERFRONT PARK IS BEST KNOWN FOR TURNING UP DEAD BODIES SO WHO IS GOING TO RIDE THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DOWN THERE?!?!
The answer: There's a great deal of luxury living space, retail and various corporate welfare included in this scheme . . . But for NOW . . . There are a few festivals down by the river but for most of the year it's pretty much a dangerous wasteland that's home to hobos passing through and where more than a few people have died waiting for help.
And so, we ask our blog community if streetcar enthusiasts aren't guilty of believing their own hype when it comes to the power of the fixed to attract biz growth in the real world and beyond press releases celebrating more tax breaks and government handouts to already rich lawyers and consultants.
You decide . . .
