Tuesday March 25 – Brookside, Waldo out of expansion plans

There has been veritable flood of media since yesterday evenings Streetcar TDD proposal meeting. We will bring you full coverage of this right here as soon as we can sort out the noise from the facts. Thank you for being patient, and most of all thank you for your support!

Energized and Engaged

parade 5
We did not make the Stars community faces collection of 282 photos of the Brookside St Patrick’s day warm up parade in yesterdays Sunday online edition, so above are some pictures of SMARTKC, Save The Trolley Trail, Brookside residents, and ATA union members in Brookside Saturday. You can see more on our Facebook page.

We would like to remind you again that the most important event coming up within the next several weeks is the first public hearing on April 1 – undue burden of proposed TDD – remember, the downtown Transportation Development District was formed because of voter apathy due to lack of information.

We cannot afford to have that happen, again!!!! Tax increases are just the tip of the iceberg and the proposed Transportation Development District is going to affect everyone in major ways.  There will be significant disruption, permanent effects on traffic, taxes, neighborhood atmosphere, property values, and much more.

On a final note for today, everyone is noticing that the Streetcar advocates refer to responsible citizens asking the hard questions as “opponents and nuisances” to be ignored – questions and arguments are deleted from their social media sites – and that is all the proof any intelligent person needs to understand that responsible citizens from every walk of life are not considered trusted partners in the future of Kansas City by the Streetcar Supporters. This is a sad state of affairs.

We will have more to offer this week, so thank you for getting involved, and have a great week
