Tomorrow, the latest KCI terminal proposal will be presented to the Kansas City Council’s Transportation & Infrastructure Committee at 8:45 a.m. and then to the full council at 1 p.m. On the docket already is a resolution to adopt and implement this new plan. Yes, the plan that has not even been presented to the committee is already on the docket to be approved by the full council. Is this another one of those infamous pieces of legislation that “we have to pass it to see what’s in it”?
There seems to be a lot of railroading here for a proposal about an airport.
But here is the best part. There is a “fact sheet” available about this resolution and the reasons and considerations for passage. It essentially says that because this new study says that the best place for a new terminal is different than where we planned, we should adopt it. Oh, and it says it will be a “catalyst for economic development” and is “good for the children.” There are no other details or reasons given for passage.
