Kansas City International Airport New Terminal Plan Shelved

Just announced this Tuesday afternoon...

Kansas City's appropriately-named mayor "Sly" James says the city will not submit plans for a single airport terminal to voters this year.

Millions have already been spent on studies to consolidate KCI's 3 terminals into one-  against the wishes of many travelers who like the convenience of the present layout.

A grass-roots organization then mounted a petition drive to force the terminal issue to a public vote- which in itself actually killed the mayor and council's grandiose and costly plan.  

This comes on the heels of revelations of police officer shortages- fire station closings and exorbitant water/sewer bill increases.
