Change planned for KCI hits speed bump
The Kansas City Star
Kansas City area residents don’t like the changes proposed for Kansas City International Airport.
Petitions filed Sunday with the city clerk’s office signal a formal challenge to turn the 1972 airport into a one-terminal facility. Generations have grown up with the convenience that the three-terminal KCI system offers, and they don’t want it changed.
The $1.2 billion cost of altering what works for travelers is outrageous. Getting voters to go along with plans to make the system easier for airlines, businesses and security is a fight that the city won’t likely win.
