Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Lol. The CIA demanded to rewrite a scene in the film “Meet the Fockers”, but people are upset because a professional messaging firm is being used to clarify and contexualize a complex planning issue? The government outsources PR work all the time, the US military which is entirely an unelected burea...

Re: Crime

Hanging the flag associated with King Léopold II in North Minneapolis is probably not going to endear your establishment to the neighborhood.

Re: Nicollet Mall

The architecture on on the 16th St Mall is no match for Nicollet. For what that is worth.

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

He called a guy who saved a bunch of kids a pedo because he made fun of his dumb rocket booster submarine/coffin. The Tesla Model S is a pretty neat $80K car, but most $80K cars are pretty neat. Somehow they are building 5000 model 3s a week but no where near that many are being registered. He is a ...

The only thing more unnecessarily expensive than Common Law country transit projects are defense contractor projects.

I feel like Finnegans has done alot to make this area more of a neighborhood. It might just be me but a local watering hole is a nice amenity haha.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

New residents can't come soon enough to this area. On an absolutely beautiful Saturday evening I counted exactly zero people in the Commons. I have also heard that the new Wells Fargo building is loathed by the workforce. All the inconvenience of working downtown, with little of the benefit.

There are going to be millions of climate refugees (some argue Syria has produced the first). This area will be an attractive place to relocate.

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections
