Re: Electric Scooters

It seems like there are far too few scooters in Minneapolis for this service to be useful, and sustainable. Every time we've tried renting, there haven't been two available within walking distance. We've even tried doing so in LynLake! Earlier this year we found San Antonio completely saturated with...

Assuming this and Seoul happen we would have two Transpacific routes (three if Delta holds on to MSP-Haneda).
Oh, Seoul is happening. I already have a direct Delta MSP-ICN ticket booked next September.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Over the last couple of weeks they've been adding signals to the entrances of the parking ramps as well as each of the levels. I'm assuming they'll be used to indicate the number of available parking spots but have no idea how they're supposed to work yet.

Re: Nicollet Ave / Eat Street - Whittier, Stevens, Loring Park

Received a notice of public hearing in the mail this week concerning Nighthawks at 38th & Nicollet (because I live in the neighborhood). They're requesting an upgrade in their alcohol license from beer & wine to full liquor. Now, I fully support this and think its awesome, but a year or two ago on o...

Heard a rumor that a Filipino restaurant will be taking over the old coffee shop space at 43rd and Nicollet.
Any more details with this? Could be a great addition to the neighborhood.
Unfortunately, that's all I got. Heard it from a business owner across the street. Hopefully it happens!

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

Interesting that it was local opposition that removed the 38th St stop. Were they worried about...uh...people from Lakeville coming in and trashing their neighborhoods? Not true at all. As twincitizen states, the opposition was to the freeway exit relocation. Everything I've heard about a 38th St s...

Re: Arby’s Island

How long will the plot sit vacant? I'm wondering if it's a long term scenario similar to the corner space in Calhoun Square. Great location but too high of a premium.

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

The 38th St redecking is expected to extend its life 30 years so its doubtful we'll see an infill station there any time soon. They did consider that before deciding on redecking instead.

I know there's no funding for it and it's not in the scope and etc etc.. but is there any chance the 38th St bridge deck reconstruction will allow for a possible future online station to be "bolted on"? I predict that Orange Line will be fairly popular, and if 46th St can justify a station 38th abs...
