KCPD TOP COP POSTS PARKING PROPAGANDA AMID UPCOMING DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY TICKET CRACKDOWN!!!
This one's is sort of scary inasmuch as a law enforcement official is touting development hype talking points from city hall. However, we're not too worried given that everything related to the big money Downtown real estate game is smoke & mirrors and kind of a playground to make bold claims with no proof.
Here's police reassurance AFTER FIRST NEWS FROM OUR KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
KCPD Chief's Blog: City and KCPD work toward master plan for downtown parking
"We’ll begin a period of public education this month, which will include issuing a lot of warnings in lieu of tickets. This will allow people to develop a downtown parking plan that will be fair to everyone and allow businesses to be successful."
Our blog community doesn't dispute any of this and we're actually thankful the KCPD is keeping their hands relatively clean during the upcoming parking ticket money grab.
Sadly, nothing about this posts addresses ORDINANCE #180061 - A recently passed local law Authorizing and outsourcing with a third party contractor to enforce parking rules inside the loop.
And so, very much like most communications from 12th & Oak . . . This bit of Internets spin is pleasant and reassuring but might not keep cars safe. As always, we advice locals to carefully obey parking rules and maybe just submit to rampant parking price gouging throughout Downtown.
