Re: Fridley - Columbia Heights - Spring Lake Park

Has anyone noticed that Columbia Heights has some decent urban buildings from about the 4400 block of Central Ave continuing on south to the Minneapolis border? I am curious about the history of this city and if there were more urban buildings along this highway that were torn down for suburban styl...

Three coffee shops still isn't enough for Dinkytown and I really really miss having something local here. Can we just tear ...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

Quick note: The redesigned 8th St SE between 15th Ave SE and Central, especially the segment between 15th Ave SE and 10th Ave SE, feels so much more inviting to interact with and cross as a pedestrian than it did a year ago. The parking lane on the south (eastbound) side of the road was removed, al...

Re: Cedar/Minnehaha/Franklin Intersection

Overall this is a pretty massive improvement, but I'm just realizing there's not a safe pedestrian crossing of Franklin between Cedar and 22nd Ave. Not a huge change from existing conditions, but previously you could at least cross Franklin at M'haha. This project slightly increases the distance be...

Cheap groceries and walkability

Has anyone else noticed that many of grocery stores that are both cheap and within walk-able regions are few and far between? There are only 3 Aldis within the city limits.

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

The 5th street bridge is great. I like it as it is today (even the small/cozyness of it), but I could see how someone with ADA would have trouble with it. I wish there were nice bridges like the 5th street one (accessible and completing great ped/bike streets) in other cities as well. On a side note...
