Lawrence City Commission explains support for $17 million police headquarters

Also, I thought the location was to be centrally located. Especially since the town will grow south and is growing eastward.
Seems like a poor locations

Lawrence City Commission explains support for $17 million police headquarters

Why is the proposal okay to do without a public vote? When the last one needed public support.

A look at what is in the city's proposed 2018 budget, and how much it will increase your taxes

Can someone explain why the queens road project reeuires a benefit district, which means special tax assessments on the surrounding home owners and 9th and 19th street projects don't?

Your Turn: Editorial on Peaslee Tech was short-sighted

Shirley, well said, and thank you.

This city has a very short memory, and forgets the celebratory atmosphere when Peaslee opened, while citing its benefits.
The problem we have is this city doesn't have as its number one goal "Job Creation", and thus fails to realise. Peaslee's benefits.
There should be broad support for Peaslee by all.
I also believe that when school removed votech type classes from schools, it removed the opportunity for kids to try their hand at other opportunities in life. Not everyone is suppose to go to college. Some of the most successful people I know are the plumbers, electricians and HVAC people. There a huge need for more of them.

A look at a unique eastside housing development and why the city may spend nearly $60K to save a tree in it

If this tree was on the west side of town the city would have demanded the developer give the land to the city for free. Plus, carve out 10 lots to give to them for affordable housing. Then tell them to rebuild the aging street and sewer lines. All for free!

Sales tax and density fees to be discussed as new funding sources for affordable housing

Why is no one looking into the cost all the codes and regulations the city puts in new construction. The international building codes are great in concept. But the cost of those regulations to a buyer is less of a return then what they pay in a house payment.
Do you know that the cost of a house in lawrence and a cost of the exact same house in Shawnee cost is 25% more. Our building codes are that excessive.
Just think if the city reduced all their regulations
Just slightly. Not giving up the intrigity of the house we on a $200,000 house it could cost $150,000.
Wow! What a simple idea.
Doesn't cost anybody anything.
No special taxes, no grants, etc.

As final deadline approaches, Greyhound still without permanent bus stop location

Use the train depot. There is a large area to the east that could be paved. It already has a waiting area. That way that building gets used more.

KU has very few undocumented immigrant students compared with other Kansas schools

You agree John and David. I am vexed that we allow this to happen. But, that they pay in state tuition. Americans from other states have to pay out of state tuition. Aren't illegal immigrants "out of state".
