Re: Northeast (and Southeast) - General Topics

Definitely makes me feel less likely to vote for Reich. Unfortunately, as of the convention his only real opponent seems to have acquired absolutely zero knowledge of city planning or zoning. She could not name a single committee when asked in the Q&A session. It's too bad that Wefel never got more...

Re: 2017-18 MN Legislative Session & Budget (Djayton Unchained)

Can someone explain how this has made it in to the transportation budget bill? Is there something unique about Calhoun Isles, or this shady backroom dealing? To me, this almost reads like a backdoor mechanism to further delay SWLRT via statute-enabled litigation. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/tex...

Re: Hennepin Avenue (Franklin to 36th)

The recommended layout is up: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/www/groups/public/@publicworks/documents/images/wcmsp-198111.pdf They went with 2A (bike lanes, east side parking) south of 31st and 1A (bike lanes, no on-street parking, raised mid-block crossing) north of 31st. The latter portion is goi...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I believe they can pass another resolution if they feel a deal can be made. The March 30th deadline was self-imposed.

I'll be emailing McLaughlin about getting this done. SWLRT just cannot keep getting delayed.

Huh? We're talking about efforts to immediately torpedo long-planned infrastructure projects for no good reason. Yes, it's completely 'crazy'. No better word for it.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

A fair amount of vulnerable metro Republicans signed on to the FTA letter. I guess I'm not really understanding their political calculus. These are districts with existing transit service! Do they think that their constituents want them to spite other areas of MSP? Hopefully someone finds an effecti...

One of these just got built in Chanhassen. That should be reason enough to deny it.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

It might be possible to prevent this from passing in the Senate. Assuming Democrats are united, I would think the one Republican to target on this would be Paul Anderson in the 44th district. He won by just under 200 votes and the southern portion of his district is reasonably close to a few of the ...

What is actually bad about nominating Chris Coleman though? I definitely have a lukewarm reaction to him, but he seems better than 80% of the candidates that have been floated.
