Alright #kcmo, we had City Plan Commission today and it went fairly smoothly. Here's the docket. I'm going to start with the cases we heard and decided first so I don't lose y'all and then finish up with the housekeeping. dropbox.com/s/bf1zw7fv0pnk…
The first case was docket items 1.1 and 1.2 for the "Offices at Overlook" at 2801 Swope Parkway. This is a Community Builders development. The cases were a request to change to Swope Area Plan from "Commercial" to "Urban Redevelopment" and rezone to "Urban Redevelopment."
The reason for the changes was this would qualify them for Planned Industrial Expansion Authority incentives, which require the UR zoning. The development will eventually include multi-family, office, and mixed-use.

Docket items Consent Item 1, 4, 5, 12 were continued to the date on the docket.

Case 7 which was a special use permit for parking in Martin City was continued to September 15 before the case was heard to clear up some zoning issues.
The first two cases (1.1 Development Plan and 1.2 Final Plat) we heard were about distribution centers way down on Botts Road and I-49 in the I-49 Industrial Center in far southeast Kansas City.

Okay everyone. Here's an update on what went down at #KCMO City Plan Commission. The docket is here: drive.google.com/file/d/185Hofy…
First, we were 1/2 in person at City Hall and 1/2 online. If @QuintonLucasKC didn't have a press conference we would've started on time! Just kidding. It was an important announcement.
We continued all the items on the docket to their respective dates along with C1, a final plat south of 435 and Wornall, and 5.1 and 5.2 because we ran out of time. And all consent Items minus C1 were approved.

First like all meetings we continued many of the cases to different dates as indicated on the docket. The only difference was we continued C1, a project plan in the northland, to August 4th. It was slated to be heard today. Other continued cases include: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 14.
We approved consent item C2 7-0 which was a project plan for a drive through bank on the SE corner of N. Ambassador Drive and NW 88th street.

Short #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Tuesday, 6/30. I’ve pushed updates to all metrics to the website - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The statewide 7-day average jumped significantly to a new peak, with #KansasCity hitting a new peak, #StLouis at its highest point… 1/15
… since early May, and the outstate trend up as well, though it a bit short of its peak three days ago.

Every county in SW MO that I have been focusing on added cases yesterday. 2/15
In SE MO, Butler County added 24 new cases yesterday - easily the largest single day bump there - and is averaging over 5 new cases per day right now. Perry and Cape Girardeau have both continued to add new cases, too. 3/15

Update from #KCMO City Plan Commission. It was a long one and I'm tired but @ScottKCMO told me I wouldn't be able to keep up with my updates. Don't underestimate how much your haters can motivate you. drive.google.com/file/d/185Hofy…
A lot of requested continuances. Those indicated on the docket to be heard at another meeting were continued. Some were heard and continued but I'll explain those below.
Case 2.1 and 2.2 were parking lot modifications and additional parking for the KCPT building at 125 E. 31st street. There was some debate about signage and misc. issues. I voted yes with some hesitations.

Hey #kcmo friends, I know there are more pressing issues & #blacklivesmatter protests & responses are rightfully taking most of everyone's energy but we had the City Plan Commission meeting today. And I still think it's important to keep everyone up to date on what happened.
Here's today's docket. And I'll go through some of the major actions. drive.google.com/file/d/185Hofy…
First off, through 2 meetings I have been unbelievably impressed with the thoughtfulness and attention to details my fellow commissioners have demonstrated for every project that has come before us. @QuintonLucasKC and his staff deserve credit for putting together a great board.

After reflecting on the #protests in #kcmo and #topeka, here’s a couple of tips for my fellow whites on the do’s and don’ts of protesting police brutality and supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement
1. Always listen to the Black organizers. You do not know the struggle or the strategy to win better than them.
2. Have supportive signs of allyship, not co-opting the Black struggle. Good: Black lives matter! Bad: I can’t breathe.

Today was the first City Plan Commission meeting and as promised I'm going to keep you informed as best as possible. Here was the docket: drive.google.com/file/d/185Hofy… #kcmo
Chair Coby Crowl did a great job leading us new commissioners through the process. At the end of the meeting we voted Commissioner Cokethea Hill as Vice Chair of the Commission.
As I've stated I can't speak specifically and in substantive detail about cases that will be heard or haven't been decided but can discuss cases that the City Plan Commission made decisions and moved out of the commission.

Here is my #Missouri #COVID 🧵 for Monday, 5/4. To see the interactive maps, head over to the MO tracking site - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

Since Missouri “reopens” today, with the statewide #StayAtHome order lifted, I want to take stock of our data.

1/22
I don’t want to bury the lede, though - as of “reopening” day, we:

❌ do not have reliable, public hospitalization or symptom data,
❌ have not increased testing volume in weeks, and
❌ have significant increases in cases in multiple regions around the state.

2/22
The state’s highest rates are in Saline County ☝️☝️, where an outbreak several meatpacking plants has led to nearly 200 cases. An earlier meatpacking outbreak in Moniteau County seems to have subsided based on the data we have at hand. 3/22

Thread with facts about this move.
ERS & NIFA don’t need to be “close to producers” as farmers are not their stakeholders. Their stakeholders are Congress, USDA policy officials, & researchers, all of which reside in DC & who use their research to create policy for the benefit of farmers.
👇
As Laura Dodson, a USDA researcher has said, “We do a national level of research. Suggesting we could be better researchers seeing a single cornfield in one state is wrong. We are in service of national agriculture, we service all, not just one region or a specific few.”

1/ It’s been a week.

It’s well into Friday evening & I just got off the phone with a patient who had urgent radiology results. This was after spending > 40 min on the phone w another patient discussing the same this afternoon.

(18 more to come; stick with me.)
2/ I only got 2 items on today’s long “to do” list done — but that’s on me. I was finally able to sit down for a couple hours uninterrupted and dig deep into a few patient cases from the week.

(And I “don’t work” on Fridays.)
3/ As I hung up the phone, I reflected on how #directprimarycare has enabled me to get to the heart of medicine & the doctor-patient relationship.

During that call, my patient’s spouse broke down and — through sobs — simply said: “Thanks for being so kind.”
