Re: Troost developments

Any update on the plans for Linwood and Troost? John Hoffman came out and announced plans a while back (although I don't think there were any renderings), but I heard that he was very premature in doing so and he hadn't even been selected yet by PIEA (which owns the properties). This looks like it ...

I've heard that Shields is interested in the City Manager's job anyway.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Neighborhood parking passes won't change anything, just codify MAC residents who buy a pass to be able to park in front of their homes. If these are all single family homes the neighborhood probably isn't dense enough to do parking passes without including the larger density apartment buildings in ...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

There's a perception that the streets are parked up in a block or more north and south of Armour. That's not even remotely true, and even if it were, almost 95% of the houses within a 1/4 mile radius from Armour and Troost have driveways. You're completely right, some smart public messaging from MAC...

Re: Troost developments

There is. From what I understand, the previous owners have been foreclosed upon, and the new owners wanted to board up the buildings to prevent vandalism. I'm not sure how concerned they should be, as the buildings have stood essentially vacant for years.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The second part. It's going to be fun arguing with people who have driveways why they shouldn't be able to control the parking on the street in front of their house.

Gregg Community Center was its usual ghost town. There was a Freedom, Inc worker outside urging people to vote yes on all 3 issues.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The parking is going to be a huge fight. Hyde Park’s anticipated parking demands are already causing alterations in the Troost project.

Re: Westport

The idea is to barricade the street, which would force people onto the private sidewalks, where they could be wanded for guns. It's an absurdly transparent end run around state laws and very likely the Constitution. Sadly it's appeasement enough for some of the local urbanists who see giving away so...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Despite whatever the neighborhood association thinks they did here, they're demolished at some point unless Shields provides MAC with close to 3/4 of a million in city money. Damn! You’re going to make me give Shields credit now too?! Was hard enough grudgingly giving the HOA a compliment. Sigh. I ...
