Re: Hopkins - General Topics

I've been thinking, with the Cold Storage site being around 17 acres and assuming the SuperValue site gets fully developed which is around 45-46 acres (2 million sq ft), that's around 62-63 acres from just two sites in Hopkins (and that's ignoring a few others decent size sites). Which considering h...

Re: Fantasy maps

Thinking a little bit about Abrt I started to wonder if there are any other corridors more that could be added in the future besides the original dozen or so studied back in 2011/2012. Looking at a few routes in terms of ridership and how they relate to the future lines, I could think of 4 off the t...

Re: Hopkins - General Topics

Even if only a fraction of the supervalue land gets redeveloped I would still be contempt since now that the area around Blake is undergoing a fair bit of redeveloped, I would argue that the land on the south side of excelsior blvd is one of the if not the most areas that could benefit with some red...

Re: Edina – General Topics

Alright this might seem out of nowhere but does Edina have any rules/regulations on urban chicken coops, I only ask since yesterday I was biking on the 9 mile trail and I see one next to the trail in front of an apartment building. I figure they must be allowed since it must of gotten out somehow or...

Re: Scooter sharing

My current biggest concern is that once people start zipping around on electric scooters on bike paths, we'll see a surge in privately owned gasoline powered scooters and skateboards with stinky, noisy 2 stroke engines. If I recall correctly MN law states that only a selected few motorized vehicles...

Re: Scooter sharing

"Motorized Foot Scooters" are defined in state statute 169.011 and given basically the same "rights and duties" and bicycles in 169.225. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/169.011#stat.169.011.46 https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/169.225 In that case I would argue that the city and mak...

Re: Bike Share

Thinking more about bike share in the Twin Cities: it would be great if the cities along the southwest light rail would adopt a dockless bike share program before the southwest light rail opens. Having a ductless bike share system could really do a lot to encourage more pedestrian/bicycle friendly ...

Re: Twin Cities to Eau Claire regional rail

Well given how hard it is to get one lrt line going, a line that doesn't enter the MSP core area somewhere nor connects with any other metro line probably has a snowballs chance. But now that I think about it, I agree a commuter line from Minneapolis and St. Paul to Stillwater would work with maybe ...

Re: Twin Cities to Eau Claire regional rail

didn't know about the old Stillwater spur so decided to look into it and made a quick drawing of it Green is the main line that the Eau Claire train would use, orange is the ROW that still has some track, and yellow is the ROW that doesn't (pretty sure its a bike trail now) https://i.imgur.com/ZU2Wk...

Re: Twin Cities to Eau Claire regional rail

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

Honestly if there going for streetcars on Nicollet I say see if they can't borrow some of the old heritage cars from MSM once in a while or better yet recreate some of the old TCRT fleet but upgrade them with modern equipment.
