Small business folks, if you are thinking about getting the +Google Fiber  new commercial service in KC, tread VERY carefully. I've been trying to get an office connected since February, and it is a hot mess. Their helpdesk and CRM systems are a disaster, they can't reliably track an order status across time or across departments. There is a chaotic mix of contractors. We have the fiber jack and all of the wiring and construction complete, but they won't turn the service on because their ticketing system has no record of the various contractors finishing the job. No one actually works for Google itself, so no one really has the authority or the desire to solve problems.

Next MO River crossing due for replacement is the Route 92 Centennial Bridge between Leavenworth & Platte Counties. KDOT has not committed to including bike/ped, so your voice is needed next week to show strong public support. http://ow.ly/GZhh1
Speak up and support a safe place to walk and bike on the new bridge over the Missouri River between Leavenworth and Platte Counties.

"Yes I am the cyclist you hit..This is not an NPR pledge drive announcer on your radio." (roughly quoted from Wait Wait Don't Tell Me)
A 56-year-old Manitowoc man escaped serious injury after he was knocked off his three-wheeled bicycle by a suspected drunk driver and was hurled through the car's windshield on Saturday night.

+Google Fiber is great, but their cabinets are destroying our sidewalks. This one is on Roanoke Road, just south of W. 39th Street. They left about 1.5 feet of sidewalk, which is a violation of local and federal law for accessibility. City policy is five feet. Federal ADA law is three feet.

Send me a photo and location and I'll have it checked. The one in this pic was corrected last year.

"Repairing our roads, while adding abundant bikes lanes, is one of the smartest, most cost-effective investments we can make for the metro’s long-term well-being."
The life of a city, like those who live in it, must have balance. The soul must be nourished, but so must the body. For a long time, people in Kansas City have focused on our collective soul.

Phase of Kansas City B-cycle is coming this spring, and we are crowdfunding to add as many new B-stations as possible. Contribute to the campaign and help bring a B-station to your neighborhood.
