Re: Zoning, building codes, enforcement in the courts

I'm not sure that's a fair summation of the recent decision. They ruled that the officer needed a search warrant to search underneath of a tarp that covered a vehicle which was parked undoubtedly within the curtilage of the home. The way that I read it, an uncovered vehicle outside of the curtilage ...

Re: Weyerhaueser site redevelopment - 700 Emerald St

Nice job of preserving the surface parking. I also really like the lack of and E-W road connection through the site. All that space and just 300 units of housing. Bravo. I'm not really sure what you are talking about. The property that is being redeveloped has Myrtle Ave (aka Sharon Ave) going full...

Re: Road Crime

Well the picture shows a large impact on the passenger side of the red sedan. My guess is that the red sedan was headed north onto 35W and the black SUV was headed westbound on 4th St. Looks like after the collision, the red sedan spun clockwise since it was hit slightly toward the rear. Most likely...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Officers need to personally witness the violation to issue a citation for petty misdemeanor offenses. So... unless they see the driving in the seconds leading up to the parking, an officer simply cannot cite by law. If state law (or city ordinance) there doesn't prohibit parking in a bike lane and t...

Re: Road Crime

Metro Transit police were involved because they were the ones chasing the car. They are cops and have the exact same authority as any Minneapolis or Saint Paul cops. Also, scanner traffic reported this was about 12:30p and it never exceeded 55-60mph. Sounded like the driver wasn't quite sure whether...

Re: 721 1st St N

My guess would be that they're saving that half for future development. It's a fifth or a sixth of the block. There will be no room for anything except, maybe, row houses. The problem is that they don't own the property you guys are talking about. It would be nice if they owned the whole blockface ...

Re: "A Line" Snelling Avenue Arterial Bus

If a "meter maid" can write a parking ticket, why can't they write a fare evasion ticket? Is it the way the fare evasion crime is classified? Yes, part of the answer is the way fare evasion is classified. Most parking offenses are petty misdemeanors, which means that they are by definition not a cr...

That's the St. Paul Subdivision, but yeah, there's usually a path there .

Central went thru both Hennepin and Ramsey county, Hiawatha; Hennepin and Dakota, so there was even more cooperation needed.
Are you saying Hiawatha goes through Hennepin and Dakota counties? It actually does not. It only resides in Hennepin County.

Rep. Bachmann et al are back again lobbying for an I-94 expansion from the suburbs to St. Cloud... And surprisingly there are a couple of nice viewer comments about finishing Northstar all the way.

Re: Twin Cities Future Transit Map

From what the MetroTransit website says, it appears that the Red Line is terminating at the MOA Transit Center. It looks like you have it going all the way downtown. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.
