Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

Ten years per rail line is about right on schedule. 2004-Hiawatha, 2014-Central, 2024?-Southwest.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Corridor Development & MinHi Line

Even has a table/window eating area looking at the LRT station for quick stops-and-goes. But I'd be money that after the first two grab-and-gos, that door gets locked up for security

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Peggy Flanagan would be a solid pick. Naming Craig would put the 2nd back on the table in a low-turnout special election.

They charge $10-$15 a cone, and the line is out the door constantly. What are they screwing up?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

With the black tiles off and multiple colors of blue and green insulation exposed, I think we missed a real chance to get this thing in some bold, primary colors. Someone call Valspar, I have a job for them.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

Even if the design is weird, they are bridging a park/trail to an industrial area with one egress point? I guess the space is limited, but try to serve the residents by connecting at Hampshire Ave. And why is there no connection from the Louisiana Ave bridge to the Cedar Lake Trail (that I can see)?

But is it site activity, or spillover from the sewer work going on the Hiawatha bridge?

Re: MPS Comprehensive District Design

Interesting, no more community K-8s. The K-8s in my area (Lake Nokomis, Folwell, Field/Hale) going to K-5 may be in improvement, smaller area focus hopefully means smaller school population. It also looks like it will be easier to close schools in the future, if all the adjacent schools have the sam...

Re: MPS Comprehensive District Design

North is already empty because everyone now open enrolls to Hopkins or Minnetonka. Perhaps the thinking is "maybe if our attendance area looks more well-off, the local families will treat the local school with more respect and work to improve it." I think any Kenwood family that can afford private s...

Re: Lake & Nicollet Redevelopment (Kmart site)

"Open" means open to cars. Doesn't need to be a freeway, but there should be an allowance for autos, else why are we spending tax dollars on it.

Re: MPS Comprehensive District Design

Me personally, I don't have a big problem. We live two blocks from Roosevelt, so kids are going to go there, and we're not affected by the elementary school program shifts. Overall, I don't know how MPS expects to get those Kenwood and Uptown(not Uptown) families to North every day, relying on Metro...
