Re: Midtown Greenway

Finding and lobbying Minneapolis city council members (and the mayor), and Hennepin County Commissioners is an actionable thing.

Re: Midtown Greenway

Short/mid-term it may not make sense to through-route midtown streetcar/LRT with the greenway extension, though they should still preserve some extra ROW for future transit. Along with initially extending the greenway, Ayd Mill Rd reconstruction is on the horizon now. It's a great opportunity to tea...

How do Met Council & cities deal with a need for retrofitting bigger pipes in existing areas? Who ends up paying? How long does it take? Is it discouraged?
Plus 1. Are there any guidlines or precedents for the Met Council/Cities dealing with this?

Re: Bike Shopping

So I've been doing some holiday bike browsing/shopping lately. Is there anything I should look for (or common decisions to make) when it comes to ebikes? Also, are there any good holiday deals for bikes/ebikes? Since I'm looking for a utility-focused bike, stuff like this post (below) is pretty help...

I hope that map isn't a final design, since it looks kinda rough. Pretty great seeing all of those routes on the official metro map, though!

Re: St. Paul Restaurant News

I just want to point out, Tin Cup was going to move to Vadnais Heights specifically, which Bob Fletcher is/was the mayor of. Now that Fletcher is (unfortunately) the sheriff, they say they will stay. Smells like politics to me.

Re: Wooddale Station Area / PLACE Proposal - St. Louis Park

New gas stations happen occasionally (rarely?) inside the loop. A new holiday gas station was built after MNDOT put in a diamond interchange at Hwy 36/English St. Probably not many other recent examples.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Wasn't the WBL park and ride going to be at the Mariana Triangle station? Do we really need this too? If this was also a district parking ramp with price controls to manage the supply, and it led to local businesses giving up some parking lots for development, it would be a positive. I doubt either ...

Lots of family-friendly 2 BR units in the mix.
It's not family-friendly unless it's a mansion with at least 10 bedrooms and a cleaning staff.

Do people actually get paid to design bad branding, or does this happen to save money? What degree do I need to string acronyms together? 🤔

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

To comment on two things: The "Maplewood Mall" station goes to the transit center and park and ride ramp in the SW corner outlot. It doesn't go directly to the mall, but it is important for transfers to other bus routes (54, 64, 80, 219, 223, express buses) and it does provide access to structured p...

Re: Roof Depot site

For me, I think of the Phalen Village Community Garden close to home, by Maryland Ave and Hazelwood. It certainly provides valuable green space, but it can't literally feed the neighborhood. Cano could really use a better track record of promoting helpful policy instead of feel-good solutions. There...

Re: Roof Depot site

His snark is probably for the same reason I'm snarky about urban farming. It's often a feel-good solution that takes the place of other, better solutions. A grocery store (or even a corner store) does a lot more to fix a food desert, while actual farmland outside of the city is far more efficient/ef...

It looks like they're eliminating a lot of "school trips", is that where they're getting the hours to reinstate service elsewhere?
