Re: Regional Water Resources (Aquifers, Rivers, Lakes)

What’s the alternative? Asking earnestly.

Buying them out and forcing these houses off your tax rolls seems no cheaper/better.

Usually when something like this happens it’s Nick’s fault.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Making this a two lane road would essentially turn it into a parkway, which is fine, but also maybe not quite enough to address the problem here. The bigger issue is that Ayd Mill is the most direct passage from 35E to 94, and it likely still would be. So in addition to ripping out two lanes, the ro...

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Apparently Forever 21 is on the fritz, which wouldn't be good for the mall.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

The Dunn Bros in Metro Lofts adjacent to the Westgate LRT station closed under kind of random circumstances last year too. As far as I know it’s still empty.

Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

The population comparisons from PLGTMD are interesting, though I think focusing on total population numbers kind of misses the essence of the discussion being had here. The metropolitan area surrounding Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo has roughly 4x more population than the Twin Cities ...

Re: Minneapolis Density and Population Growth (500k, etc)

A big reason Cleveland and Cincinnati have better visibility than Columbus is because the Indians, Red, Browns and Bengals. The baseball teams have been around basically as long as the sport has, and the Browns pre-date the Super Bowl. Columbus, from afar, is easy to mistake for a peer to cities lik...

Them moving to Midway also would have generated an interesting discussion surrounding the massive parking ramp they inevitably would have had to build.

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

I can't imagine there are many trips on the Parkway for which 62 would be the next-best fit. Not saying that as a good or bad thing, just an observation.

What’s the general end game behind the viaduct removal dream? Just move the freeway entrances farther out? Or is the idea that we get rid of them altogether?

Re: Electric Scooters

Somebody parked two electric scooters in the boulevard in front of my house this morning, which stressed me out because 1) why did they park in front of my house? and 2) how long were they going to sit in front of my house in the middle of a random residential block in South Minneapolis? But then my...

Re: Midtown Corridor Rail & Lake Street aBRT (B Line)

To talindsay, I think that assessment of East Lake and Marshall is true for much of the day, but the bridge becomes a major pinch point at rush hour, and removing one or even two lanes of traffic could really back things up. I travel from Fairview into Minneapolis daily, and getting from Cleveland t...
