Kevin Collison began his recent look at the impact that Tom McDonnell has had on Kansas City by saying, "If the 1930s was Tom’s Town, as in Pendergast, since the early 1990s it’s been Tom’s Town... as in McDonnell."
What? You've never heard of Tom McDonnell? Then tune in to Tuesday's Up to Date as Steve Kraske welcomes Collison, development reporter for The Kansas City Star, to talk about the career of one of the most influential men in Kansas City redevelopment.
We'll also talk about the latest in the economic development wars between Missouri and Kansas, get an update on Cerner speeding up construction of its big project out at Village West by the Kansas Speedway, and discuss what the potential sale of AEG means for the Sprint Center downtown.
