Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

On October 11th at 7pm, Linea Palmisano is holding the 2040 second draft plan discussion at the Lynnhurst Community Center @ 50th St and W. Minnehaha Parkway. In May Ms. Palmisano did a community discussion at SW High School she stated that she did not endorse what was in the plan and the speakers w...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Fun article on bike/pedestrian bridges in the Twin Cities: http://mspmag.com/arts-and-culture/best-bike-bridges-in-the-twin-cities/ Now I need to check out the Hamline bridge in St. Paul to see how crazy it really is by Energy Park Road. A shout out to the recently opened 9-Mile Creek Trail in Hopki...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Attended the Minneapolis 2040 community outreach meeting at MLK last night and sat in a couple of the round table presentations. I was expecting to see neighbors carrying pitch forks and torches chanting "Follow the Money" based upon chatter on nextdoor.com but things were pretty even keel. It was n...

Re: 36th and Bryant Area

Public comment to fill the empty lot pit filled with trash with residential housing units is due by midnight. I lived across the street at 3611 Bryant in 2013-2014 and the garbage/litter filled pit is a gross mosquito breeding ground. The current commercial building is also pretty ugly. This seems l...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

These non-contiguous bike lanes are frustrating as a biker and especially as someone who likes to bike with people who are more risk adverse on bikes. Time to step up your game Richfield and Minneapolis regarding the stretch between 60th St to 68th St. It's scary as heck to bike on this 4 lane inter...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

One thing I forgot to mention regarding the 54th and Penn pedestrian safety meeting is that several people in the community seemed interested in the installation of a mid-block pedestrian crossing similar to the one at 50th & France. That could be a good idea to bridge commercial districts with a hi...

Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

I also went to the meeting last night regarding the pedestrian fatality at 54th and Penn. Sat in the front row, Hi! There were several comments about traffic flow in the area not being fast enough, people being upset with traffic snarls (I think that this is drivers annoyed that they have to wait fo...

Re: Southwest - General Topics (Linden Hills, Fulton, et al)

Hey Bob, I really don't like when people make negative blanket statements towards people of means. Everybody is different and should be given a chance on whether or not they are a decent person. Both people of means and little means can be jerks. I don't consider myself an exclusionary person but I ...

Re: Southwest - General Topics (Linden Hills, Fulton, et al)

David, I see your point that the author may truly believe that a 4 story condo building should not get built on that parcel of land. What I don't think is appropriate is to throw out qualitative catchphrases in the letter with the intent of them being read as factual statements by the uninformed. Pr...

Re: Southwest - General Topics (Linden Hills, Fulton, et al)

A cute, disingenuous article about a potential condo development in Linden Hills. The author clearly thinks he's being so giving and open minded about allowing new development as long as it fits his definition of what is appropriate. http://www.southwestjournal.com/voices/2018/01/choosing-neighborho...

Re: Rex 26 - 2601 Lyndale Ave S

Aldi does have great products at amazing prices. They're products are oftentimes a dollar less than anything comparable anywhere else. A pound of almonds is a $5 vs. $6 at Trader Joes. A dozen free range organic eggs is $3 vs $4 at Trader Joes. You get 2 lbs of dried black beans for the price of 1 l...

One of my good friends lived in Milwaukee 2 miles north of downtown on the lake front. Brady Street is an amazing area for lots of diversity and fun bars and restaurants. There is even a great jazz club and a 24 hour Greek dinner there. Last time my SO and I visited we rented an apartment in the Bay...
