Re: Living Green

So, one big thing that can help with your ecological footprint is your diet. Going vegetarian is commonly cited as an option, though easier steps/changes like substituting chicken for beef also make a big difference. Raising chicken takes 1/4 the resources of raising beef. Cooking/eating more veggie...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

The two things said 54 aBRT are waiting on would be the Riverview LPA and the 54 extension test. The Riverview LPA will determine whether or not the aBRT will serve the Ford Site, and the 54 extension's resulting ridership bump whether aBRT is yet feasible in that corridor. The 84 bus's ridership pr...

Re: Useful research links

Does anyone know why seemingly all of MNDOT's links are broken now? Did they migrate to a new web address or something? over the last number of months whenever i try opening a webpage or pdf that turns out to be MNDOT's, it never works. I've tried it in both chrome and internet explorer, but neither...

Re: Homeless tent city along the Hiawatha Bike Trail?

A housing-first policy to eliminate chronic homelessness would also be pretty great.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

To have a mixed-traffic streetcar with parking on both sides, I'd think they would have the Streetcar in the outer, non-parking travel lane. The stations areas would be bump-outs into the parking lanes, with parking between stations. Down the line, we could probably retrofit Riverview such that the ...

Things were getting tense at the end, but there's no endorsement. 276 Carter, 137 thao, 93 no endorsement. Harris' people kept together after he was dropped from the ballot.

Re: 2017 St. Paul Mayoral Election

We split the proposed minority agenda changes into
1) adding in the prayer breaks
2) switching the order so the mayoral endorsement comes before the school board endorsement

2) is meant to help Carter get the endorsement, of course.

1) has passed

2) passed 247 yes, 175 no

Re: 2017 St. Paul Mayoral Election

First part passed by a voice vote, second part passed 265 yes, 175 no.

A minority on the rules committee is trying to force a rules change to get a Melvin Carter endorsement. http://i.imgur.com/Q0e48LH.jpg Edit: the initial results are 228 yes, 224 no.

Re: Tenant Rights in Minnesota

Do renters have any rights in terms of having power restored in a timely manner after an outage? Our power went out this morning, and Xcel just texted me saying it should be back on by 11am on June 14. (!!!!)

I never had to deal with a 3 day wait to have power restored growing up in a SFH.

Re: Tenant Rights in Minnesota

Dealing with the humid heat of the midwest especially when trying to sleep, is just as shitty as dealing with the cold would be if your house didn't have heat. At least with the cold you can keep putting more things on. Heat you can only go so far before you're sitting around naked and you can't do...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Maryland 4-3 is going to be maintained for the second 6-week test period. Sounds like it's going well. Biggest complaint in the comments they've received so far is complaints about drivers' ability to turn (left?) onto Maryland from local streets. Not sure that was ever easy or possible, though--it...
