If people are circling around the block trying to find an available parking spot, then the price of parking is too low. That's a basic Donald Shoup principle.

Re: Road Geek Topics

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm also disappointed the Active Traffic Management dynamic signage was removed (and long before it was removed, disappointed they were no longer used for variable speed signage). On another note, I'd be eager to see a 10-year review of all the Urban Partnership A...

Minnehaha Scoop will be adding Dave's Popcorn here shortly. Minnehaha Ave/34th St E.
Does this mean Dave himself and the current popcorn shop at 47th and Cedar will be closing? Or a second outlet?

Re: Prospect Park - General Topics

Do lots of non-U buses use the transitway outside of state fair times? I wonder how much expense it would be to run streetcar or LRT tracks on the transitway alongside any future move. Interline with the Green Line tracks from Stadium Village to West Bank, then have a pocket track between West Bank ...

Re: Bergan's Redevelopment - Cedar & Minnehaha Parkway

This was approved by the Planning Commission last night. The only changes were a few different conditions of approval regarding a material choice and a window which seemed to have already been worked into the plan by the developer. Sounds like Bergan's will be closing for demolition by September 1.

Re: Midtown Corridor Rail & Lake Street aBRT (B Line)

Or just interline a Midtown-Riverview service via the existing Blue Line from Lake Street to VA Medical Center station (with a wye just north of Ft Snelling Station) and you have a one-seat ride from Uptown/South Mpls to Downtown St. Paul via existing planned LRT trackage.

The concept drawing on p 13 of that PDF shows a grocery alongside the Southdale Library. Anyone know more about that concept? There was originally a Red Owl at Southdale, right?

Re: Southdale Area Development - Edina

Too bad this wasn't planned at the same time as Lifetime (or Shake Shack for that matter) as there would have been a significant opportunity to sort of regrid part of the Southdale superblock. A 67th St or Beard Ave could have meandered through the space.
