Kansas City, Missouri, Council Considers Letting Restaurants Turn Parking Lots Into Patios

As Kansas City lifts coronavirus restrictions on gatherings, many small bars and restaurants are still trying to figure out what being open again looks like. Under city guidelines, restaurants and bars must space tables ten feet apart. That's doable for larger restaurants, but it severely limits the number of guests small places can serve.

The Frosty Sly James economy offered everything but plan B in the event of a economic disaster.

This plan to turn parking lots into patios is sponsored by none other than Eric Bunch the founder of BikeWalkKC who, while a great guy, hates cars and would love nothing more than every street and parking lot in the city to be turned into a patio so that cars could no longer exist in the city limits.

Sounds like a giant reset in rents.

Wow, I'll just imagine that I'm dining in Cannes while eating in a filthy KC parking lot.

Parking lot and street dining.

What could possibly go wrong?

They would have to apply for permits. If the city cared it would waive permit fees but they don't and they won't. Eating in a parking lot where people dump their drinks, crush their smokes and drop their used gloves sounds disgusting. And to a previous commenter's point, the rolling gun battles and police chases, none of that sounds like an appealing way to spend time or money.
