Heritage Hill "Density" Discussion

On November 1st and 4th of 2023 the Heritage Hill neighborhood association hosted two (2) hour sessions related to the Housing "Crisis" and the current round of proposed Zoning reforms. Roughly the first hour of the session was a presentation, by a Heritage Hill resident, on zoning, Heritage Hills' current density, and the current housing market. The second hour was Q&A and the type of table based work-shopping typical of these events.

The Beginning Of The End (of The Rapid)?

It has been a long time in the making, riders have been able to feel it coming, and now it's here: the service cuts. DASH service since the launch of the DASH v3.0 routes in May (2023) has not operated Monday or Tuesday, the other days of the week it has been unreliable (not 15 minute headways). Ghost buses have begun appearing across the network, a phenomenon rarely experienced in previous years.

Meeting Calendar 2024

This is a summarized list of various meetings happening throughout the city, in one convenient location.



The Keeler Twitches, Again

The Keeler building has been sitting empty at 56 Division Ave N since 1995 [28 years]. It's looming and dilapidated presence creates a dead feeling intersection on the east edge of downtown proper, amplified by adjacency to two parking lots and the AT&T switch building.
