I was tempted to put this in the 50th and France thread in the Suburbs forum... but the owner of Arezzo Ristorante wants to demolish three single family homes behind his restaurant (at the corner of 51st and Ewing) and build 16 luxury apa...

Re: Edina – General Topics

I dunno, I think this rolls down hill on the rest. Those 88 home shoppers in the market for $500K houses in the SW inner ring suburbs just outbid those wanting $400K houses in neighborhoods nearby. And on down.

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

Oh, the curmudgeons out around here are blaming this killed teen for having a cellphone too. Pretty disgusting and expected. Even the stick in the mud outraged that safety campaigns could thrust roundabouts on us. Thing is, I’ve seen numerous pedestrians crossing the street with a cellphone in their...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

There’s a Change.org petition started on the SLP/Hopkins/NW Edina Nextdoor groups for pedestrian safety improvements on TH 7 along Knollwood after a 15-year-old was killed crossing at a long traffic light in a cold winter evening.

MN Highway 7

It looks like this death was due to the frustratingly long extended rush hour highway stoplight cycle on 7 at Texas pushing a teen into thinking it would be worth the risk of running across. So sad. http://www.startribune.com/pedestrian-hit-killed-in-st-louis-park/474245343/ I don’t have any data, b...

There is an upcoming resurfacing of the pavement along 7. I don’t believe there is anything else planned. In all the public hearings around Blake Road, numerous people again and again why Blake and 7 wasn’t being grade separated. The word was it would be out of the scope of the project, doing it wou...

Re: MN Highway 7

With the 100/7 interchange completed, speed limits on 7 between Texas and 100 have been increased from 45 to 55 (with most drivers traveling 60-65 IMO). This speed increase has made the stoplight at Texas that much more of a problem. Getting cars to stop after they fly up over the hill at the new fa...

It would be a sweet public amenity or they slide in a narrow buffer on the east edge for pedestrians to walk through from 15th to Oak Grove. Take inspiration from an old east coast alley or European city. You could squeeze in a few walk ups in it...
