Re: Public Participation in Planning

I will hold up Stops for Us as an example of "opposition" meant to pressure public agencies to do the right thing. Members were opposed to a Green Line without stations at Hamline, Victoria and Western. They not only won, they changed the federal rules to allow communities throughout the country to ...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I don't know how realistic this is but perhaps this is an opportunity to redesign the line to follow West Broadway instead of BNSF. Start with a shorter segment to Robbinsdale with later extension to Brooklyn Park. Yes, it would start the process over but if BNSF isn't going to budge, better to do t...

Re: RE: Re: E Line Arterial BRT

"Zero density or demand"? Along France north of 44th perhaps, but when you get to Excelsior it picks up again, especially where Excelsior meets Lake Street. SWLRT will serve that area just fine. Maybe some people at Lake & Excelsior will go to points south and vice-versa but does it justify a major...

I really liked working downtown St. Paul. Wish we were still there.

Re: RE: Re: Crime

If we want to fight crime, then we need to fight the causes of crime: poverty and segregation. Having more police officers doesn't address either of those. It is possible to address those things while also investing in policing in a responsible way. People do deserve safe neighborhoods. Sent from m...

It should be permanent. And narrow the traffic lane.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

It's a relatively new bridge and it along with the southern bridge should provide plenty of width. AFAICT, it's being rebuilt in the exact same location.

If it's being rebuilt because TCWR didn't maintain it, then the project had better bill them.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Can someone explain why the northern bridge over Louisiana had to be demoed? That's where the freight rail will go. Why do any of those bridges need to be touched? The platform is going to be quite a bit south of there.

Well, there's always the chance it was replaced at some point.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I had wondered about that bridge. Do we know how old it is? Wooden piers sitting in water can't be great.

Re: RE: Re: Uptown (and LynLake) Development & General Topics

I would prefer The Mall be an art park/sculpture garden type space. A nice visual way to walk from the library to Lake of the Isles. It seems more fitting for the Uptown vibe than sport courts. This would be fantastic. I enjoy walking there now and this would make it so much better. I feel like fie...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

I feel like they would get a lot of walk-up business from residents. People underestimate the number of children in the area. Hmm...maybe a Five Below, then? I don't think it could be that specialized. There used to be a children's shoe store and it closed. But I literally can't but a pair of sneak...
