Re: “Jobs

Can Grunke please suggest ways to rally for better pay?

Sounds like an office worker's prognosis to me.

Re: “Redevelopment

The bike lanes on Higgins are problematic because they put bikes going straight to the right of the right turn lanes at every intersection. Please don't repeat that mistake.

Also consider a pedestrian crossing cycle as well, where all pedestrians get a walk signal and all vehicles get red lights. This would be helpful in other spots downtown ad well. Too many right turning drivers never look right for pedestrians before turning.

Re: “Redevelopment

I'm afraid that the city planning rationale set forth here is half-baked. If you want to "slow things down", you need to conceive of separating pedestrian traffic from automobile traffic as much as possible. Look no further than the bike lanes on Reserve St., largely unused because it is very unsafe due to the speed limit and the lack of separation from the automobile traffic. I don't know what kind of city planning ethic calls for "throw some money at it; and if that doesn't work, we'll throw money at it sideways." Insanity personified.
