During our last presidential election, there was a lot of talk about Main Street vs. Wall Street. But here in Kansas City, our Main Street is home to big-business and to small-businesses, to restaurants and to empty storefronts, to innovative theaters and payday lending shops.
Kansas City, MO – Nine blocks of Kansas City Main Street leading into Westport from the north are about to get a pedestrian-friendly makeover. The city public works department late last week took a look at the 90 percent of the plan that's been finished.
From 34th to 43rd and then spreading out along the southern boundary in the Art Institute District, Main will be altered with added street lighting, planters and landscape architecture.
