Re: It's that time of year again- 2016 metro population estimates

Hopefully they're not accounting for multiple time zones and are just going to wait until midnight in the east. I was up too late waiting for the media to report something the past two days. I'm tired tonight.

That'd certainly be nice, but if you're worried about astronomical taxes, I'm not sure an elevated maglev train is going to be a good idea.

Re: 225 North Cotner Blvd. Redevelopment

Sounds like a good plan.

He said the development also is appropriate in the context of the city's land-use plan, which calls for an additional 500 to 1,000 residential units in the area around Gateway Mall by 2040.


That's an odd goal to have. I wonder why Gateway in particular.
