Re: Saints Lowertown Ballpark

I missed some of the $8 million additional costs news. Where is this money coming from? I believe the quote of the week goes to Mike Hahm is the Director of Parks and Recreation: "The exact details we don't know. We have a lot of ideas. We've solved problems like this before." KSTP covered it last ...

New article about funding gap. Old renderings (As in they were released already. Nothing "newer" has been released).

Re: Twin Cities Ammunition Plant (Arden Hills)

^^^Then you have to ask yourself... What's louder an airport or a motor speedway? :) With the large and easily expandable Anoka County-Blaine Airport just 6 miles up the road, I don't really see them building a new airport here. The raceway might actually fit in with the northern burbs, good idea. A...

I was playing around with the new Beta GoogleMaps and their biking directions from end to end of the Blue Line are faster via Bike than on the LRT. :o

Re: Nice Ride Minnesota

As this program matures it would be cool if they could use technology and instant pricing to entice riders to move bikes back to stations that need replenishing. Say the U's station is low on bikes because they are all downtown. Offer the first 10 people to bike back to the U a free ride. You could ...

Re: Vikings Stadium

^^^ It would look better in a standard format like 16:9 rather than the 50'x50' square.

Looks like ~$200sq/ft. So $500,000 for the 50'x50'
I would suggest 40'x72' or 45'x80' ($576,000 to $720,000)

Like you said, it looks like there's room. :)

How do we get into these pointless discussions with pages upon pages of unnecessarily quoted text? Could we get a little moderation?

Re: State transportation financing and tax reform

...I just don't see the sales tax thing as a motivator for people to travel to MN to shop... Generally I agree with you because in the aggregate consumers are suppose to be rational as they teach in Econ. 101. Consumers are not always rational. Often not even when you look at the aggregate.
