Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I am not okay with the parking near the coffee shops, even if restricted, for a couple of reasons. First of all, I think continuous bike lanes are important so that drivers and cyclists can predict each others behavior. While I may be comfortable merging into moving traffic on a bike, many younger o...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Reminder:
There is a public meeting tonight at Longfellow Park (3435 36th Ave S) concerning the proposed 38th Street bike lanes. Meeting starts at 6:30. Definitely come and support bicycle infrastructure, especially if you live in greater Longfellow.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I stopped by to talk with the owner today. She is concerned about both the loss of parking along 38th Street and the ability to park her delivery trucks there. I got the impression from a Facebook "discussion" that Fireroast cafe (37th Ave and 38th Street) is going to try and get the bike lane repla...

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

I guess my previous post should have specified that I was responding to this: If this were to happen, I'd want to see a pretty substantial plan for redeveloping the entire Farmers Market / West Loop / Royalston Station area, including relocation of the Farmers Market to the Yard/Armory. I agree comp...

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

The Farmers' Market is one of my favorite places in Minneapolis. It attracts a large group of people from a variety of backgrounds on a daily basis for 8 months out of the year. It is the largest open air market in the Upper Midwest and it is on my list of must visit places for visitors. I believe a...

I think it would be hard to argue for Minneapolis spending any money on improving the skyways as long as they remain privately owned. Maybe a few key corridors of skyway could be made into truly publicly owned spaces with the city handling improvements, maintenance, and security. Maybe the city coul...

Re: Minneapolis Skyway System

I think the skyways, with all their flaws, are some of our most vernacular architecture. That makes me hesitant to call for their removal. I do believe they could be vastly improved by better street connections and a way-finding system.

Re: Southside - General Topics

Does anyone know what the plan is for 2629 30th Ave South? I went by yesterday and the Hauenstein & Burmeister building is rubble. Google tells me they have moved to Washington Ave North.
