Happy Earth Day, although rankings show it could be happier in Kansas; parent company of major Lawrence employer announces cutbacks

Chad, thanks for the heads up on Kmart distribution center.

Does anyone know how many Kmart distribution centers they have nationwide?

Journal-World parent company considering demolition of large downtown Lawrence building

Looks like a pretty nice building to just tear down. I don't know anything about the cost factors of renovation, but the outside of the building looks good to me.

See the latest downtown multistory building likely to request financial incentives from the city

Will, please let me know if you are interested at county value. No tax incentives, just cash offer. Thanks Chris

"As for property values, on commercial it is driven by the rent that can be earned by the property."

As a commercial property owner, I disagree. You might want to check with the County Appraiser on that one. If rent is the only factor, then please let me know.

Compliance report on city's economic development incentives will be used in deciding policy changes

Now, the City Commission’s acceptance at its weekly meeting Tuesday of a 103-page report detailing Lawrence’s economic development incentive work in 2015 will kick-start a review — and potential changes — to policies that govern those incentives.

A review is needed. Hopefully, this commission will make changes that benefit everyone..... not just the developers.

The renderings look okay, but NO more Tax Incentives. If you want to build your retirement condo, then reach into your wallet and pay your own taxes.

See proposed facelift for large Massachusetts Street building; Kansas, Lawrence job totals off to slow start

I like the renderings by Treanor. Furthermore, it is refreshing that -so far- NO Tax Incentives have been requested by the ownership group.

Editorial: Stopgap steps

Thanks Angela, I wasn't really offended. I just wanted to know if you would respond to our questions. You chose not to answer the policy questions, but found time to defend yourself regarding a personal statement. .... Enough said.
