Re: Habitable Living

If the landlord provided a couple AC units at the beginning of occupancy and didn't promise any additional AC units, you would be responsible for any others you would desire for your duplex. If an AC unit died during your occupancy, you could request a replacement. Here's an used one for $40 on the ...

Tuesday's police response to peaceful protests was the match that set off the riots. Chief Arradondo and/or Frey had all evening after the murder the the following day to plan how to manage the coming protests peacefully.

Re: Fullertown Flats - 4736 Grand Ave

Well the neighborhood NIMBY-Nextdoor coalition got the rent increased for the future tenants of this project (5 units removed for 8 second floor parking spaces). On the nextdoor app, they always bemoan the fact that rent is not affordable. When the project costs the same amount but there are 5 less ...

Re: Embarrassing Confessions of Urbanists

A 6' privacy fence on the property line would do wonders in this situation. I highly recommend it (spoken from experience while sitting in a house on a 40' city lot).

Re: Apartments vs. Condos | Renting vs. Owning

She's the new Meg Tuthill in City Counsel. She's a NIMBY through and through (or is at least pandering to the wealthy SFH owner constituents in Ward 13) as seen during the Mnpls 2040 meeting I attended at SW High School).

I expect her to get reelected in 2021 because of this.

Per Reddit, the Freemont Bridge over the Midtown Greenway got torn down yesterday. It's been pedestrian only for the last couple years due to structural issues. Plan is to replace it for car/bike/ped use. https://www.reddit.com/r/Minneapolis/comments/czs8fg/fremont_avenue_bridge_demolition_this_morn...

Re: Bike Share

I think the E-Bikes will also have the benefit of new people trying the dedicated bicycle infrastructure out for the first time. This will increase support for the existing and future new bike lanes. This will be great for bicycling in Minneapolis where currently there is strong opposition to adding...

As a recreational trail though, the up and down hills of the wooden boardwalk trail is super fun to ride between hwy 62 and hwy 100 in Edina. Feels like riding the wooden roller coaster, the American Eagle, in the Chicago burbs. The scenery is great too. Minneapolis does a great job of making trails...

I'm impressed that USI is able to set up such a large utility infrastructure throughout the city and undercut the competition on price in the process. Horizontal drilling materials, equipment, and labor is not inexpensive. My guess is that it's costing USI $1K for each customer brought online, payba...
