I wish Tuthill would have had the same attitude about giving hundreds of millions of city funds to Wilf for his stadium.

Put it on East Lake. People will go because of the power of the Trader Joe's brand and maybe some East Lake revitalization will follow. Revitalization is moving in that direction anyhow.

Minnesota has some of the stupidest liquor laws in the nation.

TJ you need to ditch your plans for Lyndale Ave and move them to 18th and Nicolett, I would love to see you as the anchor tenant in a new project in a undeserved neighborhood tha I feel would welcome you with open arms.

Trader Joe's should build at the intersection of Lake Street & 1st Avenue, the outlot of K-Mart. It would spur development, bring good customer traffic, has sufficient parking, is on public transportation and would probably be legal in this location. They could even build a little larger facility and employ more people. Traffic at the 27th & Lyndale site would have been HORRIBLE, had the store been built. Thanks to the neighborhood and the City Councilmember.

The Powderhorn/Nokomis neighborhoods are dying for a co-op or TJs. It would thrive there, and be a boon for the neighborhood.

Come check out the nightmare traffic snarl it creates on the corner of 36th and Park Commons in St Louis Park. Awful.

And we wonder why our property taxes continue to rise 10% year after year in Minneapolis. Continually saying "no" to commercial development proposals throughout the city helps to keep tax-paying businesses off of the property tax rolls and ensure that residences will continue to shoulder more than their fair share of the property tax burden. Anyone else wonder why your assessed values continue to drop, but your taxes continue to go up? Thanks to the council members for doing their part to help perpetuate this trend!

Minneapolis City Council, never misses a chance to evolve into a cold Omaha.
