Re: Suburbs - General Topics

Where else to you suggest besides Lakeville that has room for a 750,000 square foot distribution center with associated truck parking? The former Apple store in Uptown? There have been different locations all over the place they've internally and externally talked about potentially building this wa...

Re: Uptown Retail & Restaurant News

Uptown has the B and E lines coming along, and SWLRT nearby (via the B line). Things will be fine. The tall buildings are also good/needed. More transit and density will help retail in uptown.

Of course they would put it somewhere like Lakeville. Why not just put it in Iowa. 🙄

Hopefully the cuts to Amtrak will make this more of a priority at the state legislature.

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

Another thought, why did they not include the full 63 bus route here? The section that serves East Saint Paul along 3rd St has been excluded. They've done some stop consolidation that's going in effect right now, though that applies to Grand Ave, too, which they looked at for aBRT. East of Earl St, ...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

I'm suprised that Century (219 Bus) ranked higher than American (542 Bus). American is very stroad-y and suburban, but there is far more *stuff* along the American route than there is along Century. More density, more potential transfers, more destinations. Unless Century College and the demographic...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

I'm pretty sure the 54 bus/W 7th aBRT corridor is going to stay, and it's not because Riverview is canceled. Towards the end of the Riverview alternatives analysis process, they had basically settled on needing 2 transit services in the corridor. One direct connection between downtown and the airpor...

Re: Hillcrest golf course redevelopment site

Industrial jobs being built in exurban areas with no transit is a problem of sprawl. That isn't solved by bringing suburban sprawl into the central cities. That is solved by densifying currently developed areas and investing in our transit network. This redevelopment offers a great opportunity to do...

Re: Hillcrest golf course redevelopment site

Yes, putting industry next to a neighborhood that has suffered from racially driven divestment is an example of systemic racism. A refinery has decent paying jobs, but that doesn't mean we should put one here. Blue collar jobs always get zoned into poor and POC neighborhoods. If they are quality blu...

Re: Hillcrest golf course redevelopment site

I hate all 4 of these concepts for Hillcrest. They should not be putting all this "light industrial" here, and I really wish the port authority would stop trying to turn every development into industry. Or at least all the development in East Saint Paul, which is disproportionately poor, immigrant, ...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

From back in 2018 when they extended the 54 Bus, in the brief presentation available online about it, they mentioned improved "10 minute peak" service on W 7th. How frequent was the peak/off peak service for the 54 on W 7th before that? In theory, that 3 year CMAQ funding will be running out in less...

Re: Public Street Blocked by Residents

Single cop patrols were tried for a while and it was discovered that they behave even crazier when they're alone, so they went back to the buddy system.
It sounds like we could use more police officers that can behave themselves without adult supervision.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

It would be nice if one day our METRO system also had express tracks (and full grade separation). I'll gladly accept high frequency light rail transit (or BRT) in the meantime, though.
