End of worrying about new stadium?

In the KC Star, late last night, was this story: Group abandons effort to block Bannister redevelopment.  It does not say if Mr. Tolbert and company have dropped thier plan of actually acquiring the mall via litigation, but his petition drive to bring the Three Trails development plan to a public vote is over.

Really though, we’ve known for a while Mr. Tolbert wasn’t going to get the signatures. Bbut that didn’t stop all of us that wish for the project to go forward from fretting over the possibility of it being stopped.  Demolition wasn’t going to start until at least sometime in February and only after the state TIF is secured (which is supposed to be a slam dunk).

I don’t know that everyone in favor of the project will stop worrying until the demolition starts, but for now this is very good news.
