Letter to the editor: Money talks

Just park on my street, everyone else is going to park there when IT is done.

City Commission undecided about East Ninth Project, votes to discuss it in coming weeks

Look how much information is available on the proposed bust depot, NONE. They had no problem pledging millions to that KU hole.

City Commission undecided about East Ninth Project, votes to discuss it in coming weeks

We can skip the new entrance to the Central District the city is building to make KU happy and you can have that money. Don't want the intersection anyway. Too bad there wasn't a discussion about 19th St and the money being spent.

With community still divided, East Ninth Project moves on to City Commission; vote not likely Tuesday

Too bad KU isn't behind the project. Things would have been done before anyone had a chance to know what was going on and there would have been blind, total commitment by the commission. Done!

What road in Lawrence is most in need of improvements?

I'm afraid to ask about my non existent curb anymore, last time I asked we seemed to end up with an entrance to KU and a new intersection on 19th St nobody wanted.

Lawrence family of six gets 'hand up,' buys home with help of housing trust

My neighborhood of 20 years is full of "starter homes". Most are rented to students that don't take care of them with landlords that care for the homes enough so that they don't lose any money whether citations or through rot. Is that a slum lord?

Motorists beware: 30-plus summer road projects planned throughout Lawrence

Ousdahl and 19th st is still open. What a waste of money and possibilities. Intersection should have been at Anna or Ellis drive where there ISN'T a residential neighborhood. They moved Engel on 15th from entering the neighborhood, why do they need Ousdahl at 19th? This way they can use us as a parking lot.Too bad there weren't open meetings to discuss this stuff. KU is a BULLY and the city is a wimp! FU KU!

Former city commissioner seeking large tax rebate for proposed downtown project

KU didn't have any problem breaking those codes in the Central District. The foundations to the buildings were poured before they ever asked for a variance from the commissioners. Set back is closer than allowed, height is more than allowed for setback, less parking than allowed at the new 2,000 human student dorm. Codes don't mean a thing unless you use them. These issues were supposedly hashed out in the past, that's why there are codes.

Sounds familiar to what KU is doing but I don't think the "parkers" are leaving anytime soon.

KU proposes 4 percent tuition increase for 2016-17 school year

So, how much money is being spent on a parking garage and other crap (The "CD") that isn't necessary? I don't think a new 2,000 person dorm along 19th St (closer to the street and taller than allowed, with parking, all below code) is going to make anyone any smarter.
Is KU about educating people or making money?
I can guarantee you the people that are now parking on the street for free and walking to the bus stop aren't going to pay KU to park in their proposed mega million dollar garage. It will just be more KU paid parking for students and basketball with a bus stop the city threw some money at to appease the BULLY. HUB? Don't think so.
Maybe the new 2,000 person 19th St dorm (closer to the street and taller than allowed with parking all below code) will feature AFFORDABLE HOUSING options to replace the Stouffer apartments KU destroyed? Maybe those apartments weren't making money?
