Podcast #7 – Re-Opening Lake Street with Robert Lilligren

The world’s largest parking lot.

This week’s episode of the podcast is an interview with Minneapolis Councilmember Robert Lilligren, who represents the area aroudn Lake Street and Nicollet. A little while back, while working on a story for, our contributor Prescott Morril interviewed Lilligren about his project to un-do the terrible K-Mart development project from the 70s. I tagged along and recorded the conversation.

Here’s a link. Enjoy!
