    I'm with jmicah and jjakucyk on this one. The proposal is great but the loss of the street wall is a non-starter in my book. It would be so easy to fix though. Just make that "plaza" space indoors a la IDS Center in Minneapolis:

    Technically the garage is rising already - hard to see from this angle but the lowest level ramp is taking shape:

    Historic tax credits are by far the best way to support economic development in this state. Historic renovation is likely to involve small and local contractors. The buildings are likely to be supported by existing infrastructure instead of requiring new roads and sewers and parking lots, so it’s very efficient for government budgets. Historic buildings are more likely to host locally owned small businesses once renovated as well. This program should have been quadrupled in size, yesterday.

    Very good news will likely be coming fairly soon regarding the saving of the Crew. Stay tuned.

    I believe it went something like this... mumble, mumble, mumble, Dirt Bikes, mumble, mumble, Al Qaeda in Public Square, mumble, mumble, mumble, Cleveland is Booming, mumble, mumble, mumble, Cleveland is Failing, mumble, mumble, mumble, Don't Mention My Nephew... Something to that effect.

    Well they're just not being very kind to those of us who want to see them spend their cash reserves on building a massive, new, imposing TransDigm Tower in downtown Cleveland where they occupy 3% of the 1.5 million square feet of floorspace but get the naming rights.

    My fiancé and I had a successful hiking trip. Pictures honestly cant even begin to do the foliage justice. Everyone should put the White Mountains during peak foliage on their bucket list. Boston was fun too, but this took the cake. Pictures are from the Osceola summit, parts of the trail, and a hidden mountainous pond called East Pond, which was worth the constant uphill hike.

    I was walking around downtown yesterday and decided to check out some of the construction progress of a few buildings when I discovered this has been added along the Front & Rich intersection... I saw one of the other posters said they noticed the LC construction trailers had been removed and I also noticed that the lot no longer offers monthly parking passes. I'm taking this as a good thing. Progress!

    Am I the only one that missed President Trump boarding Air Force One with toilet paper on his shoes? His policy positions aside, that's just objectively funny.

    It's silly to pretend the context hasn't changed some in 200+ years. We are no longer 13 separate colonies, each of whose residents saw their state as a separate country and mistrusted the others. We are now one unified nation of 50 "states" which are really practically speaking more like provinces than they are like sovereign states. There's no reason that states need representation beyond the representation of the people within them. And before anyone cries "states rights!", let's remember that the Republicans are more than happy to have the federal gov't overrule state laws that they don't like. So you're not going to convince me that you have any principles on the matter.

    There are still a few spots that need to be developed before it's truly built out. This is strip mall will desperately needs to be redeveloped: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9807521,-83.0042504,3a,62.6y,303.98h,89.41t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1slVtdTdE5ylRRAZE-i1Lmqw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Then, there is this whole block that is a possibility: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.983157,-83.0047136,3a,75y,278.56h,90.66t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sXhE5ZsUVXdzBUAQlDQ249A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Here's another potential spot: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9842746,-83.0049344,3a,75y,279.07h,89.18t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s5FCgbN6NCGu2x0l7E75uXA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en This spot has a lot of potential due to it's size: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9850497,-83.0050857,3a,75y,243.06h,80.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sl98_C_b1-xTULJRpLXdscQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Other than those spots, there isn't much more that can be developed without tearing down historical buildings. The good news is development is already starting to spread east into Italian Village.

    If sprawl was really that "natural" then Canada would look just like the U.S.

    They couldn't move to the cities if they wanted to. Read about the postwar housing shortages and how the government provided financial assistance to help people buy or build new homes. That's what created the suburbs and that financial assistance became institutionalized, creating new communities after older ones wore out since we prefer to spend tax dollars on replacing communities rather than rebuilding them.

    A month ago Mann was on board... Mann, David Wed, Sep 19, 1:58 PM to me Hello, Thank you for reaching out to my office. Pedestrian safety is very important to me, and so when I learned about the proposed Liberty Street Diet pause I was also surprised and concerned. City Council approved the original plan, therefore I believe City Council should be involved in any changes made to the plan to calm traffic on Liberty Street. I appreciate that you took the time to write to me. If there is anything my office can do for you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff. Sincerely, Councilmember David Mann.

    Can we stay focused on sidewalks?

    It's interesting how even though they're each much older, how having two original Beach Boys really does sound like THE Beach Boys. Mike Love is still out there but for whatever reason he has rarely done anything with Brian Wilson for the last 30+ years. I have played around with Garage Band exactly once in the 15+ years I've had a Mac computer and recorded 30 seconds of...Sloop John B. I think this was 3 tracks, each the same electric guitar not plugged in, just playing next to a laptop computer with a built-in mic. I sold my guitar when I bought a house so I'd need a month or so to be able to play this again:

    According to the older CAGIS data I have (mid 1990s) there's a 10-inch water main under the north side of the street only, basically aligned with the original street.
