Trains Magazine wrote:KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Council last week authorized a contract worth as much as $697,559 with HDR Engineering for design and conceptual engineering work on a proposed 2.2-mile downtown streetcar line. The line would travel primarily along Main Street and connect the River Market, Downtown Loop, and Crown Center areas.
Whether the line is actually built or not is up to voters. A special election will be held, possibly as soon as April, in which about 10,000 downtown area voters would cast ballots to create a transportation development district. The proposal to establish the district would include a 1 percent sales tax increase and property tax assessments to help pay for the $100 million proposal.
