Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

I would just like to chime in quickly and say that, anecdotally (though there also exists research saying likewise, as well as countless other anecdotes)—having gone through periods of utilizing first a car (MSP suburbs), then a bicycle (Minneapolis proper), then public transit (Milan) as my primary...

Re: Milan

This would be great to see as currently the bicycle infrastructure is quite underdeveloped and disconnected. Minneapolis is really a ways ahead of Milan in that regard—even though central Milan’s density and terrain would make it an exceptionally bikeable city. There’s already multiple bike-share op...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Unfortunately this virus doesn't care what people will put up with. It's going to get worse for months before it gets better.

Supporting local businesses as people are able to is a good idea. (Supporting each other in general as we are able to is a good idea.)

Re: Public Participation in Planning

Hey, thanks everyone for the input.

As a slight aside: I'm wondering if anyone here would be able to help get me in touch with people involved with urban planning for Minneapolis and also for San Francisco? Please DM me if you have any connections :)

Re: Public Participation in Planning

I guess I still need a little more clarification. Are you only looking for NIMBY-type opposition, or the kind that most of us here would consider positive/progressive, like public opposition to a freeway? Does it matter if the effort was successful or not? Etc. Success doesn't matter—in fact it wou...

Re: Public Participation in Planning

How broadly are you defining "public opposition"? Nearly every project in the Twin Cities faces some level of public opposition, but I assume you don't just want a list of every single project. This is a very good question; thanks for asking. I guess my priorities are as follows: 1. having examples...

Public Participation in Planning

Hello everyone, I am writing a thesis on the effects of public participation in planning/urban development, and I'd like to organize a catalogue/list of projects and plans in the Twin Cities which saw public opposition. I'm hoping there are examples from different neighborhoods. These could be build...

Re: Star Tribune

Does anyone else seem to encounter the paywall at _all times_? I literally read less than 3 strib articles per month now, but no matter if I'm using the twitter app or safari, it *always* says I've reached my limit, so I have to use incognito. Another annoying thing that happens on desktop is that e...

It won't. But that would still be better than the ramp.

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

Somebody somewhere alluded to repurposing the I-394 trench and I think it's brilliant. Cut-and-cover N 3rd Ave from the Fed to Washington; demolish the C Ramp (and the B Ramp?); build shiny new *European-style* terminal building from Washington to 5th. (stage II includes converting 5th St. into a be...

Unique Facades/Materials

Hi, so the reason I'm starting this is because my brother is taking senior photos and wants to use some unique places in Minneapolis as backdrops. I thought I would poll you all for ideas. I'm thinking about places like the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie, T3, Lime Apartments, Rapson Hall, US Bank Sta...
