The Unified Government who was tired of seeing it's mid to higher income residents move to JOCO. The way they planned out Legends, NFM, and the Speedway was brilliant. Too bad Legends has been mismanaged by it's owners and is now facing auction. I hope they are able to pull that together because it's a great destination before or after a game.
They've made some missteps like the waterpark on the wrong side of the highway, the soccer fields potential spot being contaminated. And the casino? Not sure it's even there anymore. I am still torn on whether or not LSP should have been on the other side of Legends. Maybe they couldn't secure that land. The parking at LSP is atrocious but given all of it's other pluses that negative isn't huge.
WYCO did something very good for it's community. I'm glad to see it flourishing and think that a stronger WYCO also makes for a stronger JOCO. If we could just get the morons on the other side of the stateline to get their act together the metro area could become something spectacular. Alas, everything that JACO touches seems to turn into a bigger mess than before they tried to fix it.
I'm just glad WYCO got their act together before they decided to try to build LSP in Lees Summit or Independence. I would not relish having to drive out there three or four times a month.
