KC is such a hick town. We did away with street cars in the 1950s because we had buses. Our street car plan is silly and wasteful.There are free buses and Streetcar system in KC is something we got rid of 60 years ago. It was stupid then and it is stupid now.. Please stop it.

Sadly, we just allowed this developer to set a precedent of government assisted funding for any future development along the Main Street extension.

Now everyone will demand it.
