Re: Southside - General Topics

This is moving from two blocks from me. Hiawatha Academies built a middle school building a few years ago, and it's been operating as their high school. It was frustrating to see how opposed the neighborhood was to the idea of a high school. There were some definite undertones with it, since the hig...

Re: D Line - Fremont/Emerson/Chicago Rapid Bus

Could make a lot of sidewalk space if you made Lake St 3 lanes and cut in bulbouts for all the parking lanes.

Re: D Line - Fremont/Emerson/Chicago Rapid Bus

The point is to go where there are actual activity nodes, no? There are big activity nodes at 48th and 56th.

Re: Zoning in Minneapolis

Staff recommends denial of a variance for a raised bed planter in a side yard. Anyone else think that's ridic? I bet every fourth house on my block has non-compliant planters. And to think you're supposed to get a variance for a raised bed! http://minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@cped/documents/...

Re: D Line - Fremont/Emerson/Chicago Rapid Bus

FRNNG is supporting a station at 48th and Chicago. I'm hoping we can do a joint resolution with HPDL supporting stations at 48th and 52nd. I sorta wish we could be doing stations at 41st and 44th rather than 42nd/46th, since that's where there are actual business nodes and development opportunities....

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

I will say, the only reason I go to Southdale (about once a year) is to buy a new stack of Stafford large extra-long undershirts. There is no compare. Now I will have to combine a J.C. Penneys run with my thrice-annual pilgrimage to the Burnsville Costco. Back to Southdale - I wonder if the value of...

Re: 700 Central Avenue Northeast Apartments

Seems like most of the streets in this hood could be three lanes two directions (one lane in each direction plus turn lanes). Maybe primary streets like Central or Hennepin could have peak bus-only lanes and off-peak parking.
