Full Speed Ahead

The Finance Committee has passed the Three Trails TIF plan today unanimously, putting to the city council for it to be passed. The other good news from this article is the news at the end of the beginning of the fourth paragraph.

But a late amendment that would give the city the opportunity to remain engaged
with the financing of the project while it is being reviewed for state
assistance persuaded the mayor to drop his objections.

So the disapproval that Mayor Funkhouser had stated last week looks to be out the window with this new amendment. For all Wizards fans, this is huge, as Funkhouser had been the big road block remaining in the process, due to his dislike of the possible Super TIF. While there are still hurdles to be passed, it is still a huge step forward in the process to get a stadium.

Below are some pictures of the development.

Great news! Looks like Kansas City can count on this central Iowa resident to patronize its businesses for many years to come.
