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

Rental license fee and inspection fee is currently for all rentals. If you read the above a little more closely I am talking about an additional fee for those that rent single family homes to persons other than a single family. Renting a family home to students reduces housing for actual families and it more often than not has negative consequences on what could be a family neighborhood.

How about a fee on single family rental homes that are rented to persons other than a family. Stop turning our affordable family homes into student rentals.

Lawrence City Commission approves deal to take control of Santa Fe Station

Although the majority of the riders are KU students, KU only wants a HUB if it's paid for and maintained by the City. Should the City pay for and maintain two locations?

City of Lawrence awarded national walkability ranking; evaluation makes safety and funding recommendations

I am talking about a brand new sidewalk. We are going to install brand new non ADA compliant sidewalks and then fine people to bring them to code?

City of Lawrence awarded national walkability ranking; evaluation makes safety and funding recommendations

I do appreciate the walk ability and desire for pedestrian improvements. However, I remain a bit skeptical due to the sidewalk that was recently placed on our street. The sidewalk itself is not even close to being ADA compliant and it also spans a parking lot crossing parking spaces at one end. The City is supposedly bringing the sidewalk to code this Summer, we will see. If you're not going to build it right don't bother.

Editorial: No consensus on transit hub

KU wants a HUB but they don't want to pay for the ongoing responsibilities that come with the HUB. Who are the bus riders? What is the percentage of KU students vs Lawrence residents on the buses? Let KU pay for their own buses and the City can buy Uber passes for Lawrence residents that need a lift. Much more efficient and cheaper.

Construction to close gateway intersection to KU campus for much of summer

Happy someone gets traffic calming next to campus (and no parking, and lower speed limit). Sure isn't any traffic calming happening along 19th St.

Lawrence mayor signs letter objecting to Trump's environmental policies

I am impressed she took action and didn't defer the matter to different City employees that never takes the time to respond.
