Wonderful, breaking news on the airport and the whole one terminal idea. This from the Kansas City Star this evening:
A group of Kansas City residents filed paperwork with the city clerk’s office Sunday to start a formal challenge to the planning for a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport.
The paperwork, filed by a committee of five petitioners, starts the process to seek a citywide vote on the future of KCI. The group needed to turn in 100 valid signatures of registered voters and gathered more than 160 signatures, according to John Murphy, a member of the petition committee, which is calling itself Friends of KCI.
“We think a $1.2 billion airport is unnecessary and wasteful,” Murphy said.
Once those signatures are verified, the group would have 30 more days to gather about 7,200 signatures to trigger an actual referendum vote.
So now, let's get out there. Let's sign these petitions and share and distribute them. Let's get some input on this whole hair-brained, wasteful, polluting, obscenely expensive idea.
