Re: Electric Scooters

I think Bird dropped out of St. Paul because they probably considered this area one big market and (frankly, understandably) thought it would be nonsensical to limit access to one of the two cities here (and let's be real, the less lucrative city probably).

Re: MSP to Rochester High Speed Rail

I remember a lot of concern about ice falling from elevated tracks in the winter.

Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 40 stories / 442'

Maybe I'm naive but do we really need more tracks for Chicago HSR? Is it a capacity issue?

I have to say if the train needs to be non-high speed in the city, I'm fine with that if it means we need to spend less public dollars re-establishing a consistent passenger rail link between here and Chicago.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

This 46th street bike way is overall pretty great to see! Disappointing that the bridge over Godfrey is going to be a bit of a choke point, but I guess if they want to keep it 4 lanes there just isn't room for more.

Overall an improvement, I hope to see this extended westward along 46th some day.

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

I have long thought that for events at Midway, they should construct another platform for the Westbound trains. There looks to be enough space between the existing crosswalk at Simpson St and the left turn lane for Snelling. (Edit: I'm looking at the platform lengths on google maps and you might nee...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Development Site

I thought the point of this ramp was that they would actually build *on top* of the ramp itself, and not just on the skinny lot next to it? Does anyone else remember this or am I making up memories?

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Development & RR Corridor/MinHi Line

I would agree with amiler92 that I would hope they would go bigger and bolder rather than more timid with the design. Under 2040 isn't this parcel supposed to be due for pretty big upzoning given it's location near a train station?

Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

Ortega and McDonough may sincerely believe that the best path forward is to force people to use Union Depot, but that doesn't mean it's necessarily the right path forward for the Gold Line and for the region.

Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

I have heard from a resident in the Phase 1 building that it's not very full. They have these big units that are two stories that face 28th Ave with their own entrances, which seem nice, but the second story is actually underground. Kind of a weird setup that doesn't allow for a lot of natural light...

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Ave Development & RR Corridor/Grain Elevators

Does anyone know if these two need variances or CUPs?
