Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I would agree with EOst's point. I guess it sounded much more like people were advocating the city build a ramp themselves rather than strongly encouraging one as time moves on. My opinion was that the mixed-use development should include parking that can be used by the development during the week,...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

It won't be, unfortunately. Either the city will have to run public ramps or work very closely with development to encourage/ensure that happens.

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

It should stand that the asset try to be slightly less of a burden than it otherwise could be. It's an asset and a burden? Okay. Yes, something can be both an asset and a burden. If I'm hungry, 500 pounds of potatoes is a win. 500 pounds of potatoes that I then have to haul is now also a burden. In...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Sharrows or normal bike lanes are really only good for low-traffic, low-speed residential side streets. Anything more than that and the division of traffic needs to be clearer. I'll leave it to people to decide whether it's because motorists don't respect road-sharing, or because too many cyclists d...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Oh look! A back-and-forth that isn't witty or furthering discussion! The stadium plan, from what I've seen, is going to be a nice asset to the area in terms of commerce. It should stand that the asset try to be slightly less of a burden than it otherwise could be. The city should help defray some of...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I do think they're a little short sighted on the 'no parking ramps' idea. There should be one, as part of the mixed use site. Game day parking fees can then be set to make driving something you think 4 times about. A little bit of compromise doesn't invalidate the larger idea, nor would I think it ...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

Informational only hearing.. We won't know if this passes or not until the very end of session. No tax bill, and this could be in trouble. Very unlikely this moves on its own. From what I've been seeing from a distance, I get the impression there is little chance this won't happen. If it does end u...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Think curb without a sidewalk. Jersey barriers are much taller. This type of structure is just a raised curb of concrete.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

But I also wonder why the city isn't using a narrow concrete barrier more throughout the city like on Oak Street. It's actual protection, and it looks great! I wonder what the cost difference was as opposed to regular bollards. The excuse I've seen from other cities I've lived in (I'm relocating to...

Re: Introductions

Hi everyone! Just stumbled upon this site while in the process of relocating to the MSP area from Denver. While we haven't signed a lease yet, we're very close to doing so in the North End district of St Paul, and really excited about the potential. I'm being relocated for work, took another positio...
