Forum Friday: Threads of the Week

Welcome to the new, experimental feature: Forum Friday! We’re hoping to highlight some active discussions around current affairs on our forums. We encourage everyone to check them out!

This week on the forums, long-running threads on several ongoing projects are back to life as breaking news brought them to the forefront again. Here are a few of those threads:

  • Ford Site Development: Ryan Companies are seeking subsidy for the site. Our forum members wonder what density would reduce the subsidy.
  • Rice Creek Commons: Ramsey County is seeking to dissolve the Joint Powers Authority with Arden Hills for the development of the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant. Drama is sure to ensue!
  • Downtown Retail: Some pictures of retail signs, some retail news, and some forum commenter sass.

Check out our forums today!
