Re: Pedestrian Safety and Infrastructure Improvements

This is going to be unfair: he feels like '90s Norm Coleman. I don't think he'd change his stripes completely for the sake of gaining power like Coleman did, but ambition does seem to be his primary characteristic. Yes, that's the feeling I get from him, opportunistic and mostly driven by his own a...

I work across the street and nothing seems to have started. I also heard about the June 30th date for parking to end and the lot is still being used. Anyone know what's going on?

Strib is on my shit list since they somehow set me up with a second digital subscription when I got a new credit card. They sent the subscription that was attached to my old credit card to collections, that was fun. Assholes.

Really excited to see this get going since that corner is really a low point if you're walking along that stretch of Washington...decaying old building and then a parking lot.

I don't understand why we can't just have regular two lane arterial/collectors with bike lanes and crosswalks be the norm in Minneapolis like in other cities. Nicollet would a great place to start. Get rid of the huge center turn lane and just put in a left turn lane at major intersections. Then mo...

Re: Minneapolis Mayoral Election 2017

If there's more delegate spots than people that want to be delegates, they don't bother asking who you're a delegate for. When there's more potential delegates than delegate spots, then you've got to break up into candidate groups to select delegates. I see, yeah at my 8-5 caucus we needed more tha...

Outside of those actual places, the whole area is ...

Maybe Surdyk's will eventually shut down and we could get another mixed use development on this site!? :D :D
I would love if the store got bought out, leveled, and then occupied the first floor of a mixed use building. It's a ridiculous suburban-style site.

What are all those people doing? They are almost certainly skid row inhabitants. EDIT: whoops, see other folks already made that observation.

I'd be happy to start with a lid from 40th to 42nd: expand MLK Park and re-connect 40th across the void. Probably could extend it a bit on each end. I wouldn't want to do anything that would preclude adding a median BRT stop at 38th in the future though Highly improbable under any circumstances. I'...
