"On Aug. 4, 2017, Kansas City residents passed an ordinance, brought to the city through an initiative petition, that prohibits city officials from moving forward with any streetcar extension without first gaining citywide voter approval. That included any planning or preparation for construction."
Because elections and Democracy are a bad joke in Kansas City, this week the City Council moved forward despite a citywide vote:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City, Missouri, City Council approved a project management agreement Thursday with the Kansas City Streetcar Authority and Kansas City Area Transportation Authority. The extension from Union Station 3.6 miles south down Main Street will include 16 stops offering access to some of the city's most popular areas, including Westport and the Country Club Plaza.
