Re: St. Anthony Village

http://www.savmn.com/DocumentCenter/View/826 The group came back with a plan that is significantly worse. No street frontage to speak of. 51 affordable units vs 97 originally. A brand new large parking lot fronting a portion of the Stinson/Lowry commercial node. It would create a 90s-esque suburban ...

Re: Thrivent's Surface Parking Lots

After a brief glance, I would rather see the retail portion be at ground level as opposed to in the skyways. I'm not sure that a residential lobby will necessarily activate the street and put eyes on the street. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk One of the original proposals did have ground level ...

If that's not a project tailor-made to adequately address neighborhood 'concerns', I don't know what is.

All non-light rail transit should be free that Sunday.
HAH! Fare should be 50 bucks! Get those people to pay MORE for making our city a mess for a week! :lol:
Give all locals free full-day vouchers.

Re: Minneapolis City Council and Park Board Elections 2017

French was also the only at-large candidate who did not respond to the Our Streets Mpls candidate survey and the only at-large candidate who did not respond to the League of Women Voters survey. I'll be ranking some combination of Vetaw, Henry and Hogan.

Hoch's $500 donation to the MN GOP in 2016 completely disqualifies him in my eyes.

Re: Minneapolis Mayoral Election 2017

Unfortunately, even if you do take issue with an Our Revolution candidate, there aren't really any great alternatives for Park Board At-Large.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Every delay costs money, so they're going to have to justify that the re-bidding will result in greater cost savings than the cost of the four-month delay.

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

Hmm, I don't have hard data, but it seems like Minneapolis is retrofitting intersections with bump-outs at a much higher rate city-wide than St. Paul these days.

Re: Cedar/Minnehaha/Franklin Intersection

Yeah that seems like a wholly unecessary diversion for what was once a straight shot if I wanted to head north into Cedar Riverside. Now to go North or West I have to go left through 22nd, and up Cedar to go straight or turn left. That and cutting off 20th so you can only turn right onto Franklin i...

The cynical approach would be to join the unrealistic promises game that Republicans are sure to engage in, somehow manage to lock down the MN House/Senate/Governor by 2020, then attempt an aggressive redistricting process that better optimizes the expanding Dem base in the metro relative to the lar...

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

But, when these ice shelves break off and melt, sea level actually goes down slightly, not up. I don't see how people don't get this. Depends on if it's land ice or sea ice. Last time I checked, ice shelves are by definition over water not land. Oops, was thinking ice sheet/ice shelf could be used ...
