Anti-KC stadium petition drive fails

The group opposing the redevelopment of an abandoned mall has failed to gather the needed signatures to voice a public vote on the $1 billion proposal. With the possibility of the ballot box out of the picture, the group will now try to gain title over the mall.

The next step for the stadium developers is a '$30 million in state supplemental tax increment financing from the Missouri General Assembly.' If this passes, as expected, and the anti-development group fails to gain title, then construction will likely start very soon.

All and all, it looks like the Kansas City Wizards are on pace to open up the 2010 season in a new home.
