Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I just talked to someone from Bostron's office, and they just heard from Metro transit a week ago that they got some federal grant money to rebuild that maryland/arcade corner and move back the sign. When Ramsey county mill and overlays Maryland with either a 4 or 3 lane layout (depending on the tri...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I just noticed the CP Market in Phalen Village is gone - - demolished. Does anyone know what's going on at that site? (and further, where online can I check to see permits issued, or something like that, for St Paul?)

Re: Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville - General Topics

Does anyone have any idea what's being built adjacent to the south side of 494, between I-35E and 52? I drive past it every day and have no idea what it is. It's pretty tall, like 5-10 stories, and mostly steel beams atm. There are two parts, one is a hollow box closer to the freeway, while the othe...

I've yet to find a really compelling reason to get any of this home automation stuff. Maybe when our fridge tells us what's it in we'll see the light?
A smart thermostat to control the heat/AC and a smart humidifier/dehumidifier seem like low-hacking-risk & decent-convienience smart appliances.

Re: Smart Home

My bedroom is on Hue, but I can't stand using the app. I only use it once a day, to turn to a dim yellow before bed. I think it would be less annoying if I got the extra controllers that you can just leave on the wall. You can set your hue bulbs to automatically dim when it gets late (whenever that...

Scenario 4 - Local peak $2.50, off-peak local $2, express $3.25
Scenario 5 - Local peak $2.75, off-peak local $2.25, peak express $3.50, off-peak express $2.75
I'll take Scenario 4, please! The local fares are nice, round numbers, and they simplify the express fare.

Re: Rush Line Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

The alternatives aren't merely geographic alternatives (though that's one kind), but alternatives in the same ROW. You could probably beef up the East sidewalk into a MUP by shaving a few feet of grass off the adjacent properties for the block in question, and continue the off-street bike path separ...
