TKC MUST SEE!!! NEW AIRPORT SKEPTICISM FROM KANSAS CITY EAST SIDE VOTERS AMID UPCOMING 'STRAIGHT TALK' MEET-UP!!!
Like it or not, the new airport cannot be defeated without help from the 3rd District and East Side voters.
Accordingly, an upcoming conversation about the new airport is exceptionally important and fact about lackluster minority participation in most city projects are slated for discussion . . .
A few items and open questions worthy of mention:
The New KCI Terminal Will Infuse $975 Million Into The City
An analysis of the current plan based upon cost allocations provided in the 2015 impact study indicate Minority Contracting to be less than 19% for the KCI Airport Terminal project.
The New KCI Terminal Will Create Thousands Of Jobs
But to date, no agreement has been made on minority workforce goals for the Airport
The New KCI Terminal Should Create Millions Of Dollars Of Contracting Opportunities For Minority Businesses
Yet no agreement is in place for minority participation on the Airport Terminal Project. The current commitment is below FY 2016 achievement levels in construction and other services.
Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate Has Been Selected To NEGOTIATE A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT FOR The New KCI Airport Terminal
The Council has yet to reach agreement with Edgemoor on a Memorandum of Understanding, including eleven Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) measures.
