Just another guy peddling his latest book and urban futurist theories to convince another clueless gang of electeds that they have to do this BIG BIG thing right away or they'll be left behind. And, of course, encourage them to use OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY to pay for those dreams.
Time to recall the Richard Florida BS that all the millenials would be moving to downtowns, so KCMO needed more density and "transit options".
That's now yesterday's news and his latest theory is that actually millenials want to live in houses with yards and in communities wwith good schools.
So the trendy ideas move on and towns like KCMO are left with just the debt burden from making believe they were cutting edge for maybe two years.
Money will make any of these grifters say pretty much anything.
