Experts Recommend Kansas City Wait On North Loop Redevelopment - For Now

The North Loop freeway that divides the River Market from the rest of downtown won't be going away anytime soon if the advice of a panel of national urban planning experts is followed.

Experts recommend Kansas City wait on North Loop Redevelopment... I have to be honest. I wasn't expecting that response. I fully expected those know-it-all White men to be cheerleaders for the idea. Will Kansas City listen is the real question? I wonder what the experts thought about the Toy Train, Convention Hotel, Two Light, Single Terminal and all of the wasted money spent on beautifying KCPD and their poor architecture and redevelopment of its buildings. These are all examples of where better minds should have intervened and said enough.

I am sure many wonder why T-Mobile would want to buy a loser like Sprint. They just want to get the frequency bands that Sprint owns. The Sprint network is old technology that is not compatible with T-Mobile’s. Once t-Mobile is in control, it is bye, bye Sprint.
