There are other cities that have improved their riverfronts, such as. San Antonia and Cincinnati. A boardwalk and restaurants that attract visitors to their cities. Not jut parkland. The marina should be fixed and have entertainment along with the area.

It was announced yesterday that the city is going to get more state aid (more of our tax dollars). New tax dollars means more frivolous spending. Here is the proof.

We have way too much money. Er, I mean, THEY have way too much of OUR money.

Sure is fun spending other people's money I guess.

If you don't want tax dollars being spent on parks, then you're definitely living in the wrong state.

That all sounds great, but can't they leave some of it wild? When I'm on the river, it just amazes me that a short distance from downtown St. Paul, all you see is wild shoreline with herons, egrets, deer, etc. I'd hate to see it all paved & landscaped.

Bravo to St. Paul for putting such a strong emphasis on the riverfront! It's an amazing and beautiful resource that needs to be promoted and developed for maximum beauty and enjoyment. You can spend as much of my tax dollars on this project as you like.... :)

Why is it whenever a project like this is discussed the Strib writes the story as if it won't cost us anything, well it will. To all of you posters who are all for this but we're against the stadium (As I am) would you still like a user fee?

Yet another shot in the left-wing war against cars. I-35E needs to be 3-4 lanes in each direction with a 55 mph speed limit before turning Shepard Road into a "leafy boulevard".

Nice idea but the City doesn't have a lot of extra money last time I checked.
