After 66 years, the city once again began laying streetcar rails downtown, preparing for the starter line for the new system.

After years of delays, the Polsinelli law firm opened its new building in the West Plaza.

We celebrated Midtown’s history with a look back at Thomas Hart Benton’s work during WWII.

The nomination of the Norman School to the National Register of Historic Places highlighted the role neighborhood schools played in Kansas City. And a lifetime of mementos from former mayor Charlie Wheeler went on sale in Westport. Meanwhile, the former Bancroft School opened as repurposed apartments.

At city hall, the final draft of an arts report was released, and a citizen group recommended that the police department remain under state control.

Also, we reported the Missouri and Kansas governors are talking about ending the “border war” of job poaching across the state line.
