City to hold public hearing for KCI terminal plans Tuesday morning

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The plan to change KCI to a one-terminal system is up for public discussion.
The proposed plan has created a lot of controversy, and people will share their thoughts with city leaders at a public hearing Tuesday morning.
For years, plans of changing the airport to a one-terminal system have been met with resistance by many residents who feel it isn't necessary.
They argue the money could be better used on fighting crime or improving roads.
However, airport officials say the current system is forcing KCI to lose flights because of inefficiencies with baggage and security.
Designers of the one-terminal system said the convenient curb-side pick-up and drop-off would still be there, and the changes would actually make it easier to get through security.

Those interested in discussing the plans will have two minutes each at Tuesday's hearing. It begins at 7:30 a.m. on the 26th floor of City Hall.
