It's coming along for sure.. Im sure a lot of the developers are hoping the growth happens as they were hoping/expecting. has anyone seen the massive apt. complex that they are building right smack dab in the middle of the flood plain close to Eisenhower?..  I think the rental properties are going to soften here in a while, obviously the normal ones close to campus will be fine but they are building sooo many apartment complexes now

Not that Weefer is the most reliable source or anything, but there's this:

Quote
Construction of the biodefense laboratory in Manhattan, Kansas, is “the most important economic development event in Kansas since railroads crossed the length of the state, some observers opine. Jon Wefald, president of Kansas State University, notes that Manhattan’s population could double in 15 years as Kansas State and the city “are poised to become the epicenter of a Silicon Valley of animal health for this state, America, and the world.” He anticipates that the center will “draw hundreds of animal-health and food-safety researchers worldwide” and will “present a huge gravitational pull” for “companies to line up offices and plants along a research corridor stretching east to Kansas City and all the way to Columbia, Missouri.” Wefald continued, “This event will go down in our state’s history as one of Kansas’ finest hours—period. Amen and goodnight.”

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

GETTING THERE!!!

Based on my community and regional planning degree (in progress)... If this is similar to USDA in Ames, it could be responsible for roughly 1,500 to 2,000 jobs. Add families to that and that would be roughly 3,000 to 6,000. Add increased business/commerce/etc. and you guys could be around 10,000 more people. Good get for Manhattan.

Not real ones.

They don't need "real ones", they are barely used to begin with. The ridership is so light that they will literally come to your house and pick you up if you call and ask.

This seems like an unusual ableist/elitist position coming from you. The ATA busses provide abysmal service. I have a relative that rides them everyday and the system could use massive improvements.

I don't know anything about the quality of the routes or service, and it wouldn't surprise me that ridership is low partly because of bad service. I was just responding to the ridiculous idea that mhk needs large metro style "real" busses. I'm very much in favor of supporting public transportation.  :thumbs:

A perfect case takes time. You of all people I would have thought would understand that. Guess not.
