Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

Looks like this is a proposal to replace the old micro-strip at Texas and TH 7 that has Papa Murphy’s and Knollwood Liquor Store. https://finance-commerce.com/2020/05/bremer-plans-smaller-more-visible-bank-in-st-louis-park/ I think this is the second new banks in the vicinity of Knollwood in the pas...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

From my recollection they would need to have acquired properties to link to Hampshire. The Edgewood “industrial” district has been slowly turning over businesses to be less industrial. I heard a brewpub or distillery was opening up at the end of Florida, for instance. The little industrial parks aro...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

I like occasional day trips to small towns outside the metro. The route there is half of the pleasure. The Grand Rounds is not a rural route for a day trip.
I was more musing at the loss of remnants of rural landscape nearby.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

I think I remember driving through recently because I love driving the smaller winding roads along the Minnesota River Valley and was surprised how much of the old rural winding road was ruined by this. What I remembered was some pretty massive retaining walls going in so they could build their high...

This bridge is going to link Dakota Ave (Peter Hobart Elementary School to the south) to Edgewood (industrial park to the north) in St. Louis Park creating a new much needed north/south connection in the city. Even with the zig zagging, it does create a new connection to neighborhoods north of the r...

Re: Embarrassing Confessions of Urbanists

I have wondered if Dora the Explorer have given kids this expectation to talk at shouting outside voice levels. But then I have overseen some of the Twitch/YouTube streams of the Roblox game she loves, every. single. streamer. shouts. all. the. time.
