DISGUSTING: DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY DEVELOPMENT BOOSTERS RECYCLE SILLY PIPE DREAM AMID DEADLY CRIME WAVE!!!

They didn't even bother to have new drawings commissioned . . . Here's a look at an idea that didn't get traction nearly five years ago when it was first proposed . . . Reintroduced by consultants and hacks with help from KCMO . . . The proposal reveals that many middle-class denizens are completely out of touch with the reality of local life in the midst of a crime spike that has claimed a record number of lives and continues going strong after more than a year.

Here's the happy talk disguised as news . . .

Downtown Council of Kansas City pitches $139 million park for Crossroads connector

Kansas City leaders are seeking a change in one of the city's most popular neighborhoods, hoping to beautify the heavily trafficked area. Members of Downtown Council of Kansas City want to implement the changes in the area connecting downtown to the Crossroads Art District and make it a more usable space.

It's not disgusting, it's capitalism.

Gotta go where the money is!

And Go 4 KC will chime in with something stupid about "momentum" and all of the excuses that KC has for ignoring the real problems of our city.

Who's going to use it the 25 million tourists?

This is the dumbest idea I've ever heard of.

Fix the flipping infrastructure first!

No wonder Sly has a pointed head, his brains have shot right out of the top of his head.

That is actually a very cool idea! I'm all for it. We need leaders with visions like this. Keep moving the city forward! Good idea!

This is a weird take and the one of the stupider "What about" isms I have seen recently. You are conflating one good thing (green spaces) with one bad thing (crime) to make your nonsensical ALL CAPS headline. It is possible that a city, any city, can do something good in one area while being bad in another area.

The problem is the entire city outside the downtown loop has fallen apart with no repair plans in sight, this continues gay sLIE’s theme of spending all the money downtown, everybody else in the city outside the loop continues to get screwed. Just another stupid idea from a arrogant drunk.

KILLA CITY ONLY CARES ABOUT A COWTOWN PALACE DOWNTOWN said...

Hey, 2:22, there's the good, the bad, and there's ugly stupid! You're saying you are okay with the wife beater, as long as he's expertly manicuring the lawn and buying flowers to pretty up the table for dinner. Or, you'd let some kids bully some other kids, just make sure the school's cafeteria fare is the finest and the sports facilities are in top condition with the latest equipment. Killa City is GOOD at tossing too much taxpayers' money around to cronies and posturing an image of success, while being BAD at controlling violence and crime; maintaining enough quality infrastructures; and providing basic services at less burdensome costs. That's the real short list for what is GOOD and BAD.

It's a good idea. Hint: Nobody cares about the crime. It's all black on black. The rest of us are busy pushing the city forward. if we had to wait until the blacks stopped killing themselves off before we could redevelop, nothing would ever get done!

Keep dreaming about this grandiose idea, it’s bad timing and it shouldn’t happen until they have made major infrastructure repairs. End of story

That looks like a great idea. Police it and keep out the homeless and that place will be bad ass!

PAINT IT BLACK! said...

Yep. Just dive for the bushes on the Plaza when it's all black on black crime. Lay on the walking trails and bleed out when it's all black on black crime. Watch your neighbors die on their South KC lawns and driveways when it's all black on black crime. Drop dead from gunshots while working on your car when it's all black on black crime.

FUCK SLIE!

VOTE NO ON THE EARNINGS TAX EXTENSION APRIL 1.

THIS CITY NEEDS TO GO ON A DIET!

THIS MONEY NEVER GETS TO NEIGHBORHOODS FOR STREET & SEWER REPAIRS.

This is an awesome idea and it would apparently cost less than one might think. This would be a transformational change. Go for it!

No. I’m voting yes.

God what pussies! Are you all 70 and over? Jesus, the trail kills were gay sex crimes gone bad, the violence on the Plaza was isolated and everything else is random. Big news chicken shits: crime happens everywhere! Do us all a favor and just end it already. I can’t imagine living my life like you failures!

Cool running gun battle course, put in a chicane or two maybe a round about for u-turns, great fun for Monte Carlos and Cutlass chases.

This wasn't originally proposed 5 years ago. It was originally proposed over 10 years ago, by HNTB who (surprise surprise) not only offered to build it, but were also awarded the $2MM+ federal contract (funded by a Cleaver earmark) to do a feasibility study a year later.

The rationale back then was that Cordish would never build the promised "residential towers" (1-3 Light) next to the highway.

The original feasibility study was blown by the fact that capping the highway would require major air handlers and relocation of utilities that was not feasible without re-excavating the trench by 10-15 feet. More like a $500MM+ project, not $139MM.

They enclosed the freeway by the arch in St. Louis. They did this in Philadelphia years ago. Dallas has a freeway park as well.
