Re: Suburbs - General Topics

"If you don't like it move to Blaine." Love this. Is Ham Lake that bad really? Seems like nice ideals..self sustenance, low property taxes, large lots, you can build a garage bigger than your house. I mean makes sense if you have a lot of boats, RVs, etc, and want to live that lifestyle...if there w...

I think I saw a hot dog shop open up at 53rd and Lyndale, next to the Subway/Prima.

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

It's frustrating yes but a little empathy goes a long way. If you don't have a sidewalk, it seems like a negative, you have to shovel it and it takes away from your yard. Of course, once you have sidewalks, most people like them. They desperately do need sidewalks west of France. I see some over in ...

Re: Embarrassing Confessions of Urbanists

Kinda boring but I think we can have good urbanism with attached garages on alleyways because for one, there are a lot really well done around 50th and lake Harriet, and they still have yards and alley access to the garage. Garage is nowadays much more than just car storage (bicycles, etc.). Conside...

We also forget that Skyways improve walkability because you don't have to wait for traffic lights to cross streets too.

Re: 77th/76th Corridor - Richfield / Edina

It's not all that often that I use that stretch, but when I do (typically EB) it does get bad and then break up almost immediately after Cedar (this experience is usually on weekends between 10 am - 4 pm). The worst traffic on 494 I've ever experienced on a regular basis is EB 494 from Normandale t...

Re: 77th/76th Corridor - Richfield / Edina

Ugh, you city leaders, just rename to 77th and 76th consistently, don't need another stupid name like "American Boulevard" which is fat, gluttonous and embarassing anyway. I do like Canadian Boulevard though lol.

Re: Hiawatha Avenue Grain Elevators & Freight Rail Corridor

Dumb question: is the southern end of Uptown e.g. land near Lake street more valuable than further north near Franklin? E.g., do people want to live closer to Lake street than Franklin as far as Uptown goes or is it all about the same?

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

St. Louis Park and Hennepin County really need to figure out what the F they're going to do with CR-25 here. My dream would've been to simply terminate the highway at Hwy. 100, forcing all Hwy 7 traffic to go either north or south on 100, meaning they could use Mtka Blvd or Excelsior to continue ea...

Re: Knollwood Mall - St. Louis Park

de-malled...lol!

Wishful thinking...but I notice this with New Urbanism in suburbs...they gotta make the roads smaller here. The roads are too damn wide. Similar feel in Richfield too. It just doesn't feel right having New Urbanism but still giant streets.
