WILL PRIVATE STREETS RUIN WESTPORT???

An urban planner perspective on the Kansas City crackdown offers a round-up and consideration of the impact that actually doesn't sound very fun . . .

"Getting into the new Westport (is comparable) to getting into government buildings and local stadiums."

Like it or not, the NEXTGEN of middle-class bar patrons comprised of gamers, millennials and social media denizens might not want to deal with the hassle.

Kansas City Privatizes Sidewalks in Rowdy Entertainment District

In Kansas City, Missouri, the Westport neighborhood fills up on weekends like nowhere else in town. Young people dine at trendy restaurants like Char Bar and drink at local institutions like Kelly's and Harpo's, the nights not ending until closing time at 3 a.m.

Westport hasn't been fun for younger people in at least 10 years. That's why they're going to the P&L district more and more.

Westport is for old drunks.

Speak for yourself mouth-breather. My friends and I are down there a lot, and it's fun. I'm sorry you wouldn't know a good time if it sat on your face, but don't you dare presume to speak for anyone but yourself geezer.

Westport is for fat chicks. That's what makes it great!

This will save Westport. Now they can run out all the blacks by racially profiling them with extreme prejudice! The fewer blacks that are allowed in Westport, the better for everybody.

It won’t ruin Westport because Westport was already ruined anyway. Hopefully this will result in hood rats being shot and killed, which will be great for Westport.

A lot of fat ugly tattooed sluts go to Westport because it’s the only chance they can find someone that is willing to fuck them. There is still an abundance of classless douchebag men down there that are willing to fuck any whore no matter what STD they are going to get.

If you don't like Westport, don't go there. It will be totally ruined, just like the Bannister Mall, the Ruskin/Hickman area, and the so called "Jazz District". Sometimes the hood rats win. It is too bad, but people exercising their "rights" must take precedence over law abiding citizens with credit cards and the ability to pay for a dinner out. Warn the kids that it is not safe late at night or early in the morning. My little JoCo sheltered pups would be crucified if they got caught on a felony in Westport. East Side? Not so much. Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks. His answer was "Because that's where the money is." KC is find out that the money has moved elsewhere. The business owners are trying, but this is Kansas City. Certain people just have to destroy anything they touch.

I crossed Westport off my list of places to go a long time ago. Isn't really anything there anyway. JOCO, Ledgends and Zona Rosa have much better offerings to choose from.

^^^Really?...Really? Pops you haven't been out in years. Let me know which bar in Zona and the Legends is better than Kelly's? Answer there isn't one! Tell me which restaurant in Zona and Legends is better than Char Bar? Answer there inst one! You played yourself there pops. Now take your broke-ass to Yardhouse at the Legends. Seems to be you speed anyway.

So, @ 10:37, which are you, one of the classless douchebag men or a fat tattooed slut?

If you hang around Kelly's or Char Bar you have to be one or the other, nobody else has set foot in either one for years.

10:37 Kelly's has been around for so long and hasn't changed with the times.

Sounds like you're the one stuck back in time and acting like an old drunk! POPS

Visitors to KC will have to wonder what kinds of thugs are running a town where you have to go through TSA style security to drink beer and chase pussy. You just have to think a bit about what kinds of geniuses who dream up shit like this.

Can you spot the stupidest statement in that article?

Yeah, those Republican lawmakers caused all the small town gun-toting gangstuhs to rush to Killa City's Westport. Since that concealed carry without a permit bill passed, rural ruffians are puting away their John Deere tractors for the weekends and rushing to have shootouts in MudZoory's Westport streets.

@10:54AM you outed yourself as the hopeless & out-of-touch geriatric you are. Char Bar is PACKED every weekend. The patio is chock full when the weather cooperates. You would know if you had been out of your trailer in the last year. Nice try though. Now get back to shitting yourself.

Cool story bro....except the sidewalks in the photo aren't part of the privatization area.

Westport used to be a hangout for young and really stupid people to get drunk, make asses of themselves, get their noses broken and get arrested. I'm not sure that anything that comes after that would be much worse.

The millennials are at fault for the security and privitazation

I am a pants-shitting geezer and I like to go to Westport. I will just have to figure out a way to sneak my gat in, because I don't want to get caught unarmed rolling in and out of Westport. That's when the blacks get you.

If it keeps the black people out I'm all for it. Fuck their feelings.
