Re: Avenues- Replace Numbers With Names

Wenonah sounds like Winona when spoken, so there could be confusion regarding both how to spell it and which one it is.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

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

I think you mean Swanson - Nolan - Hatch. Nominating Swanson would be the perfect way to earn a governor Pawlenty 🙄

If a major automaker bought Tesla, would it be profitable within a year? I think it would be awesome to see a Jeep/Dodge buyout of Tesla. Imagine an electric wrangler. 💰
Plug-in hybrid wranglers are coming soon, 2020 I think.

Re: Mall of America - Bloomington

Trader Joe's has tried/wanted to open a location in the South Loop (not sure if in the mall or not), but i think Bloomington has some restriction on any given company owning/operating more than 1 liquor store in their borders. Since there's already a Trader Joe's in West Bloomington, and im sure the...

Re: trees in Atlanta

To elucidate on that implication, more density means less infrastructure/service costs per capita, which allows us to spend more on priorities like parks. St Paul has a $50+ million maintenance backlog in their park system, and yet their parks are considered better than many other cities. If St Paul...

Re: Twin Cities to Eau Claire regional rail

There is a spur to Stillwater, though based on a map the group had been using at one point, it looked like they envision(ed) adding Stillwater without backing into and out-of a spur (meaning adding track through a new or previously abandoned ROW?)

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

The more I read about it the more worried I get. We're much better off than Japan or China, but it's still going to be a pretty big drag. I'm thinking growth will be pretty elusive over the next 20 years. Does anybody have a reality check? Am I worrying about nothing? Even in nations like Japan/Chi...

Re: Metropolitan Council

Could make for a fun/interesting State Supreme Court case: legislative bills are supposed to have a single-topic according to the Minnesota Constitution vs the line-item veto only applies to appropriations. If this is in a bonding bill, then it should be bonding, and thus veto-able. If it isnt an ap...

The new "Conifer Ridge" apartments I'm moving to in Maplewood are 3 stories. They're finishing the final (third) building as we speak.

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

Millennials are further to the left ideologically and in terms of voting patterns than baby boomers were at this point in their lives, so even if/when their views gradually change, they will never be as conservative as the baby boomers are right now.

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

Well people are talking about demographics and population growth. Because the baby boomers were born together in such a large cluster, population growth numbers will be further weighed down once their bump starts passing on.
