Re: Minneapolis 2021 Elections - Mayor, City Council, BET, Park Board

Clearly, you should be making your decision based on the specifics of the policy being proposed. Oh wait, strike that.

Re: Blue Line Extension - Bottineau LRT

From people who ride more regularly than me, the issue isn't actual crime. It's bad, inconsiderate behavior that makes riding transit an unpleasant experience that has choice riders choosing otherwise.

Re: Minneapolis City Planning Commission (meetings, agenda items, members, etc.)

There are 3 projects on Nicollet in the works between 31st and 35th that will have at least 400 units between them.
Are you counting the Wells Fargo site and the O'Reilly site (neither of which are technically between 31st and 35th)? Or are there other things you're tracking?

Has anybody heard anything about this project? Seemed like everything was lined up, and then crickets.

Re: South Nicollet-Lyndale-Kingfield-Tangletown-Windom

Great to see some movement at this location! It feels like the north curbcut location would be better -- avoiding some of the congestion that can happen closer to the intersection, but that's a totally minor quibble.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

That's a 2 mile gap between access which will make Portland and 28th much more dangerous. If we are even considering closing cedar (which let's be honIs Cedar good right now? No!

And the "unless they drop below 80,000" part was added later specifically so that Duluth could maintain its Class A status.

Re: Latest Census Estimates and Met Council Projections

Duluth will be an interesting city to watch over the next decade. By all accounts, its housing market has been red hot. And it has more opportunities for development and redevelopment than any of the built-out suburbs.

In general, I think that you're right about this. That said, if Angela Conley, for example, decided that this was a top priority, and if there were a real and sustained federal interest in funding transportation projects that focus on underserved populations, and if Bottineau continued to founder, t...

Is the CVS space still vacant? It's hard to believe that with all of the residential that's been added in this immediate area, somebody isn't ready to take another crack at this.

Re: Orange Line / 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown Project

Are we assuming no one in those large apartment complexes at Penn-American will ride the bus?
Exactly. And all signs point to more of that coming to the area. At this point, I'd guess most of Southtown is on the table for redevelopment.

"Downtown Minneapolis"
Timber and Tie’s larger apartments – those two- through four-bedroom units – give families with lower incomes the opportunity to rent in downtown Minneapolis.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

My sense is that 62 really only needs to add a lane between 77 and 35W and improve that NB 77 to WB 62 movement. While a flyover might be the wish-list solution, it would seem that segregating the on-off movements from the through traffic would help a great deal.

Off of the top of my head, the University Avenue PO by Prospect Park, the Bloomington Ave and 31st St PO, and the Nicollet and Diamond Lake Rd PO are all modest structures, but at least it looks like somebody spent a little bit of time thinking about them.

Re: Hiawatha-Lake - Minnehaha - Downtown Longfellow

Yeah, it's ugly as sin, but until the USPS is adequately funded, we can't expect it to put an extra cent into design. Everything they do nowadays is bare bones. A lot of taxpayers would scream bloody murder if the USPS "wasted" money on a nice building. I'm not suggesting that they need to spend a ...

Re: Hiawatha-Lake - Minnehaha - Downtown Longfellow

Oh wow. Even with this commentary, I was not prepared for how utterly disappointing this is. The USPS used to care about design with innovative projects, but this is just a half-assed embarrassment.
