I'm guessing the city won't be charging for parking when the $10 million ramp is completed. More good money after bad. Thanks again, guys.

At what point in this most hopeless of transit projects does anyone investing still more in Northstar face prosecution for fraud and/or malfeasance in office?

If they want to spur growth they should widen 47 so that more people want to live in the area.

We need to unbundle the cost of car storage from other goods and services (such as transit fare). It is disgusting that we build commuter rail that bypasses walkable town cores instead stopping in former cornfield parking lots. Parking is not free under any circumstance. It's shameful that those who walk or bike to transit stations (despite their hostility to these other modes) are indirectly subsidizing the car storage habits of others. It's an expensive waste of money to "buy" suburban transit ridership. Instead, focus on transit where it actually fits the land use... high quality transit improvements in the city.
