KC will count costs of failed streetcar extension proposal

Media. Electronic news. 3dKansas City is getting ready to do some accounting.

On Tuesday, voters in a section of the city’s urban core rejected a proposal that would have created a taxing district to partially finance — and allowed the city to move ahead with planning — the construction of 7.8 miles of additional streetcar lines. The vote appears to have tabled the expansion issue indefinitely.

However, Kansas City already has entered contracts and spent money on planning the extensions. City spokesman Chris Hernandez said the city is preparing to look over those contracts and ask contractors how soon they can end work on the project.
