Could the 200,000 foot "Big Bag Warehouse" located on city/farmland property the future real growth opportunity for Lawrence, house enough courts for tournaments. Big building with concrete floor on 15th street, on the side of town where KC, Desoto, Eudora communities are all growing

$42 million Lawrence police facility and staffing needs could require both sales and property tax increases

At this point, the 120 ish surface parking stalls on our land meet our needs, where again were the weeds?

Nope on a garage deal, and where are the weeds on our land that you deem offensive? Please be specific and I will get on it

$42 million Lawrence police facility and staffing needs could require both sales and property tax increases

Riverfront, LLC has offered to sell the City of Lawrence the roughly 66,000 square foot building on the west end( next to city hall) of the Riverfront mall. The price is listed at $6 million with existing covered parking. Although I understand that I am not completely objective regarding this location, the City could re-purpose the building for the library and the new police station for less than 20 million plus up fit, all on city owned land.

Town Talk: Police Dept. needs total $42M and likely would require both sales and property tax increases; new report warns of homeless problems downtown once shelter leaves; tennis talk deferred

I got to believe a combo deal could save 15 or 20 million from the current wish list. That would cover a lot of taxes, plus you could sell the current library to a( hopeful) grocery store and get it on the tax roles. I just think it needs careful thought

Have you spotted a bear recently in Douglas County?

A week ago on the river trail I honestly thought I saw bear scat on the trail, but dismissed it as no way
