Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

It’s worth noting that the 18 MW capacity of the dam is only as much energy as 9 typical 2 MW wind turbines running at capacity, or about how much energy 20 of those turbines would generate in a year in MN...a rather small wind farm. It’s a drop in the bucket compared to how much we’re gaining from ...

Re: Furnace / HVAC in older homes

We have a 1 1/2 story bungalow that gets full sunlight throughout the day, and it gets quite hot in the converted attic. We are getting a new metal roof that is less reflective (and stores less heat than an asphalt roof) with spray foam insulation under the roof deck...we'll see shortly if that make...

Re: Hennepin Avenue Reconstruction / E Line (Uptown to Downtown)

I hope this study shows promise! Something like this should help car traffic to flow a bit better on Hennepin as well, since the right lane backed up from all the busses coming in and out of the lane

Yes! As someone who lives in South Minneapolis with two young girls, they would love going here and it would be very close! Hopefully it is done by the time they are too cool to go here :)

I meandered over to ESPN.com for a minute and noticed that ESPN thinks this building is already there... :lol:

Re: Expo 2023

Interesting, that could result in somewhat reduced gridlock from international visitors if it were to be held so close to the airport.

I'm not really certain I can say. It's people who were very close to the Prospect Park proposal.
I'll take you at your word since you are in fact a real person with a non-bot twitter account etc. :D

It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out! Thanks for the info.

Re: Homeless tent city along the Hiawatha Bike Trail?

I'm just imagining if someone gets hurt or dies on the property they might be liable if they knew they were living there and their tent wasn't safe or something. At least for the current tent cities, they can just pretend their not aware of it. I don't know, just a thought.

Does anyone have a sense of the timeline of this? I noticed a lot of the houses that need to be purchased and demolished are owner occupied and some are rentals. I assume that pushes back demolition at least a year or more...

Re: Southside - General Topics

Interesting, that stretch of Hiawatha between 38th and Minnehaha Parkway is slowly filling up with apartment buildings...I wonder if this will continue that trend.
