Re: United Properties / Four Seasons "Gateway" Project (Nicollet Hotel Block)

I'm good with many historic districts. Warehouse District historic district ticks every box a city should strive for - density, increased fiscal capacity, diversity of uses, and sustainably. It also tells the story of working people and their struggle for decent pay. Marq2 on 4th avenue would be det...

Re: Subsidized and/or Affordable Housing

Eost you're not the person who pals around with vandals. You said I need to stick up for developers to make it through the night. My response was was that I'm better than fine. I have enough going for me that I don't need to celebrate a greedy developer, sorry master craftsman, of years gone by. My ...

Re: Subsidized and/or Affordable Housing

Palling around with alleged petty vandals (and total fucking children) makes you....? Aside from feeling a bit cooped up because of my home obligations I am right where I want to be.

Re: Subsidized and/or Affordable Housing

I have a kid so I know all about unprofitable labors of love. The way preservation has played out in Minneapolis makes it pretty clear to me the way the tool has been used is to impose on poor people and enforce a particular set's preference for single family homes. Having a year old child, a real c...

Re: Subsidized and/or Affordable Housing

Residential historic preservation in Minneapolis has been done almost entirely in bad faith. Look at the districts - 8th Avenue, Milwaukee avenue, and Healy. All those are well people with too much time on their hands dictating what happens in poor neighborhoods. Lowry Hill East, Marcy Holmes and th...

100 S Washington has a public restroom on the fourth floor.

Re: Zoning in Minneapolis

No, dummy. A lot of Trump voters supported him because he made wild promises that he possibly couldn't keep. He won't make health care coverage more affordable, manufacturing and mining jobs aren't coming back, and old white people will still hear Spanish language menu options when they call the ban...

Re: Municipal Boundaries and Suburban Annexation

None of this will ever happen but I'm sure does the trick as mental masturbation when bored with swlrt whining. State law provides that municipal merger proceedings begin by resolution of the affected city councils or by petition of each city's residents. In what world would citizens of Edina or st ...

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

Whoever runs for governor should have a simple message on a couple achievable policy positions. Dayton had tax the rich and won in a gop wave year. Clinton ran to the left of where Obama was in 2008. She was obviously much less likeable and ran a much worse campaign. Obama best Romney on the message...

A small high quality u lock is the ticket. Larger locks are less secure because cutting and prying tools are easier to use on a loose lock.

Re: MN State Senate and House Elections 2016

I'm pretty pessimistic. We have big problems like automation that will cause massive suffering and possible social breakdown. The problem is we're not operating in a era of consensus policy making. New deal and great society advancements were not born out of progressive super majorities in Congress....

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Anderson may fear an endorsement challenge more than a dlfer. Same goes for a lot of these Republicans. If there's anything Republicans like more than cutting off healthcare benefits to the poor and near poor in favor of tax cuts for the idle rich, it's hating rail transit.
