DISGRACE!!! BIKE/WALK ACTIVIST AGENDA HIJACKS KANSAS CITY STREETS & CASH AMID CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN!!!
As Kansas City watches an American culture war pandemic erupt, local news missed an important local money & land grab.
The basics are hidden behind a paywall but we share them FREELY for purposes of education and public information . . .
"Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas hopes to shut down several city streets to car traffic to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Under Lucas’ resolution, Interim City Manager Ernest Rouse’s office would identify three east-west routes: one in the Northland, one in the city’s core and one further south. Lucas said Kansas Citians largely travel north and south because of generations of segregation dividing east and west. Lucas said he would like residents to see more connectivity."
It gets worse . . .
WITH NO PUBLIC DISCUSSION KANSAS CITY IS BASICALLY MOVING FORWARD WITH THE $400-MILLLION BIKE PLAN!!!
Mayor & Council just changed the name and made the funding a bit more vague . . .
The "Vision Zero" Task Force will give cycling advocates a great deal of power to bully their way into nearly every upcoming construction project in order to "guarantee" accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians. The contracts may or may not go to their friends within this same "activist" community.
Remember, just yesterday these are the same people made the dubious claim a hit & run murder over a personal beef was the fault of "car culture" in Kansas City.
And so, the City Hall money machine never stops rolling for people who know how to work the system. Meanwhile, long-suffering Kansas City taxpayers struggle under threat of plague, historic unemployment and rising crime as insiders secure lucrative contracts in the name of protecting the environment, ending segregation and saving lives by way of mostly unused bike lanes.
