Re: Future Cars: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

I kind of view electric cars like vaping, in that I view neither as an ultimate solution, but I do see them as steps towards the ultimate goals of using lesser fossil fuels/lowering the over all carbon footprint, and decreasing the number of people who smoke. Meanwhile, vaping is how the tobacco in...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Potentially silly, and definitely able-privileged, question, but what is the differentiation (in inches/centimeters) between classifying something as near-level and level?

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

I guess this should go here. As a native Minneapolitan I want to give some love to St. Paulites and say this is poor form on the buisness journal staff. Nothing like listing the location as Minneapolis when talking about a site in St. Paul.

I don't think I've seen a drive through screened from the street like that before. Has anyone else?

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

Are the DID ambassadors trained in connecting people to services? That may be another way to help out as they are easily identifiable, and are already walking around downtown.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

I used to volunteer there and there was definitely an unsafe and hostile feeling there and around the building So the one in Uptown closed. Look I went here when I was fresh 18 just graduated from a high school in the burbs. It did not feel hostile to me. Unsafe? Maybe? Are you associated with the ...

Re: Star Tribune

I didn’t realize that. When’s I’ve read it, I have actually found it to be really entertaining, using very local references. For example, read the first paragraph of the following article :-) https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-lifestyle/edina-city-manager-hastily-retreats-after-ripping-minneapolis...

Re: Star Tribune

I 100% with everything said. We are very lucky to have good print, both paper and online, media here. In addition to the Strib, we have MinnPost, Bring Me the News, Finance and Commerce, and the MSP Business Journal, for sources that discuss regional, or state, topics.

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Would they be moving slower so as not to cause more damage to surrounding buildings? I remember the construction here caused cracks to appear in a building nearby.

Re: Foundry Mixed-Use Development - 115-125 1st St N, 128 2nd St N, 128 1st Av N

Part of the issue is access/signage to the C ramp. While it isn't particularly far from the NL there is likely a mental barrier for some since it isn't immediately clear to an outsider where to access the monster structure. This is a good point. I have lived here my entire life (35 years) and only ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Looking at all the diagrams, where is it forcing people off? The Y split near Portland can change to favor continuing west onto 50th, no problem, if that's what the traffic demands. The ramps up to Lyndale hitting right turn only medians, fine, should have been there already. Is that really all? I ...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

I actually really enjoy this drive. I find it very calming. Instead of forcing people off it, is there a way to slow people down?
