Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

We weren't given time estimates for any of these options.

The hope is that Seeger Square and surrounding properties won't remain a strip mall or empty space, but I admit this is merely a hope. It's also criteria around which the discussion was had.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Yeah, it really depends on your perspective. The first two options would certainly be far faster, but I just can't imagine having a major transit stop in the middle of the bridge. I also can't see having the 61 / 54 make stops there just for transfers - that would be ridiculous.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

At a recent station planning meeting there was a new idea for the Arcade Street stop. As you likely know, Phalen Blvd travels under the Arcade St bridge between Vertical Endeavors and the old 3M site. This isn't a great placement for a BRT stop. There were 4 possible station arrangements discussed: ...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

The Rush Line has started its local station area planning meetings with community members to refine where to put the stations. They have also sent out confirmations to people on the Community Advisory Committee (I'll be on it).

Re: Phalen Village

Again, I was told there wasn't developer interest to make it higher density. Apparently the neighborhood was desperate for a drive-thru coffee shop and didn't want to wait for something better. Also, many in the neighborhood probably like strip malls. The other commercial area for D2 is White Bear A...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

When I asked Metro Transit about what happens after the #54 extension's 3-year "demonstration" period was complete they did not mention the East 7th ABRT (though I mentioned it in my question). Rather, the answer was sort of that it would duplicate the future Rush Line. While they travel in the same...

Phalen Village

There have been a few articles now about the Paster Properties development at Phalen Village (approximately Phalen Blvd and Maryland Ave). https://www.twincities.com/2018/04/05/paster-properties-plans-a-phalen-boulevard-grocery-strip-mall-and-a-woonerf/ Positive aspects are that huge vacant space is...

Re: Bike Share

In a different political climate, we'd grant the Met Council the power to negotiate one bike sharing agreement for the whole urban area. It's true that it makes the most sense to have a metro-wide system like MetroTransit, but it appears that cities that have done that with their bike share (D.C., ...

The metro is already pretty flat
But certain parts aren't, especially in St. Paul with the combo of bluffs and Lowertown. i think there is a lot of potential to get folks who are out of shape on an e-bike.

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

And one has to expect that candidates like Murphy or Otto will have their most sympathetic base at the caucuses. As the voting population expands at the primaries, and ultimately the general election, Walz should be even stronger. This is exactly what I was thinking. But considering historical info...

Re: Beacon Bluff (former 3M Campus)

The Volema companies currently have buildings on the West Side, so it's not clear if this is actually adding jobs to the city or just moving them from one neighborhood to another.

It was stated that Coleman doesn't have a statewide campaign vs Otto, but it looks like he raised a lot more money.
