Re: Interstate 94

one day people look around and see that its no longer needed/gone in its current state. What I was trying to highlight (because I think it's not really thought about) was that this sort of solution is tailored entirely for the current generation—it's saying "How can we compromise so that these curr...

Re: Interstate 94

These sorts of infrastructure projects aren't made for your or my relatives in Greater MN, nor for you or me living in the metro commuting to work. They write the status quo for future generations. The reality we were born into is a huge freeway cutting through our cities; all our reasoning is there...

Re: Interstate 94

How possible/likely would it be for 94 to be officially rerouted along 694 and the interior portion ceded to the state or counties? That could at least make future changes more easily-implementable, maybe? According to Google Maps, it's already faster to use 694 if going through the cities, so it se...

Very cool—I had no idea about these paths; are they all new? I loved the quick stop at the lookout point.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

I would just like to chime in quickly and say that, anecdotally (though there also exists research saying likewise, as well as countless other anecdotes)—having gone through periods of utilizing first a car (MSP suburbs), then a bicycle (Minneapolis proper), then public transit (Milan) as my primary...

Re: Milan

This would be great to see as currently the bicycle infrastructure is quite underdeveloped and disconnected. Minneapolis is really a ways ahead of Milan in that regard—even though central Milan’s density and terrain would make it an exceptionally bikeable city. There’s already multiple bike-share op...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

Unfortunately this virus doesn't care what people will put up with. It's going to get worse for months before it gets better.

Supporting local businesses as people are able to is a good idea. (Supporting each other in general as we are able to is a good idea.)

Re: Public Participation in Planning

Hey, thanks everyone for the input.

As a slight aside: I'm wondering if anyone here would be able to help get me in touch with people involved with urban planning for Minneapolis and also for San Francisco? Please DM me if you have any connections :)

Re: Public Participation in Planning

I guess I still need a little more clarification. Are you only looking for NIMBY-type opposition, or the kind that most of us here would consider positive/progressive, like public opposition to a freeway? Does it matter if the effort was successful or not? Etc. Success doesn't matter—in fact it wou...

Re: Public Participation in Planning

How broadly are you defining "public opposition"? Nearly every project in the Twin Cities faces some level of public opposition, but I assume you don't just want a list of every single project. This is a very good question; thanks for asking. I guess my priorities are as follows: 1. having examples...

Public Participation in Planning

Hello everyone, I am writing a thesis on the effects of public participation in planning/urban development, and I'd like to organize a catalogue/list of projects and plans in the Twin Cities which saw public opposition. I'm hoping there are examples from different neighborhoods. These could be build...

It won't. But that would still be better than the ramp.
