Sometimes I wish I-29 ran through Nebraska instead of Iowa. I've said that before, but it is true. I completely agree.

Uninspiring, but there are three potential wins here: 1.) A grocery store comes to downtown 2.) The main library comes to this site and opens the current library site for development 3.)

Well, it's certainly not maxing-out the full potential for the four-block site, density-wise, but the building designs look pretty good. I'm still not convinced there's really a need to move the library, unless you show me some really substantial replacement going into the old site. The current lib...

Why don't they clean the graffiti underneath the 480 bridge? I think that might draw more people to the riverfront.
