  • That is quite nice features. It would be better if there were just more buses on routes and they ran into the evening and weekends. I have had several times where I just caught the last bus of the day at the airport and if I had checked a bag I woul…
  • The city needs to revisit its parking minimums and possibly put in place parking maximums.
  • @MichMatters, thanks for the write-up. I messaged the director and gave some feedback on the proposals for the alternate plans. I am glad that they reduced the cutting. I have the documents but I do not know how to attach it. Anyway, I hope that the…
  • There were funds last year to add sidewalks on Aurelius, for a section from Cavanaugh to Forest. This was not done and I do not see it scheduled for this year either. @Darklink if you find out anything to add some protected bike lanes on Aurelius …
  • Good question. Disappointingly you cannot access the dog park from Willard/River Trail, with or without a fob. That red dashed line to the river trail is blocked by a fence. To enter the dog park you have to walk along the river trail to the two oth…
  • Thanks for clearing that up Mich. So the dashed line from the river trail directly east to Willard is paved. (Willard is a dirt road.) The one north to Mt. Hope Cemetery is dirt and has a huge oak tree that fell over it but the route is passable if …
  • What is the address or parcel # for the Willard acquisition? There was a house at the corner of Willard and Ruth that was torn down the past couple weeks but that lot is not wooded. There is a parcel running along the creek and the cemetery that w…
  • MichMatters There are techniques where you dry out an old line and repair it by relining. (I asked about it in my email.) This could be a sewer line, a copper line in your house or most any kind of water line and then recoat it with a waterproof co…
  • MichMatters I did hear back from Andrew Kilpatrick. See below for his response. The city is looking at making some potential modifications. "Thank you for your suggestions regarding this project. We are looking into modifying the alignment of a…
  • What about running it through the golf range? It is very close to Scot woods. Plus both properties are city-owned, correct? I do not know the slope they require or how much planning is necessary for this. It is a bit strange that they like cutting d…
  • From what I read from the Scott woods group on next door the city is replacing the drain. Therefore they are cutting down every tree on the drainage easement and digging up and replacing the old drain with a new one. This is my favorite place to wal…
  • The Bear lake property owned by MSU currently not public access. There are multiple signs stating this. I think the path will be on under the power lines for the part by the lake. Hopefully, MSU does not put up a new fence there. I do not know if ac…
  • I would also not like the court/jail to be in this area. There are numerous other places to redevelop prior to this site.
  • Yeah, that is a good point. I guess the builders and planners have not picked up on it. Maybe when the BWL leaves their site on Pennsylvania and Hazel there could be some opportunity for building above the floodplain but still have river views.
  • That photo is looking west to the bridge over the red cedar that crosses next to the zoo. From what I was told is that this bridge will have an elevated section farther east toward Aurelius to reduce water over that small section.
  • The parking entrance for the hospital as designed is off of Forest. I have commented to McClaren that this should be moved to using Collins but I have not heard back. The city is planning on adding turning lanes and that is it. I do not have any upd…
  • So the problem is they have trouble stratifying the seeds? Putting the seeds in a refrigerator and setting an alarm for 90 days then transplant to a growth room. They could also take cuttings of the tree and root with rooting hormone. Maybe sell som…
  • The specs on this building do not call for classrooms, therefore its location close to other buildings is not as important a need. As far as I have heard and read some biomedical and plant science-related global impact initiative hires will have spa…
  • The added commercial space could be quite beneficial for those in the area. Looks to add substantial value to Collins Rd.
  • Several other peer schools have free bus service on all routes for their students. Hopefully, this will be expanded to the entire CATA route network.
