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! is a non-profit and is volunteer run. We rely on your support to keep the servers running. If you value what you read, please consider becoming a member.

    Nice! I’m more in the forums, every single one of them, even the Suburbs 😉 . I think this is a good experiment.

      I think this is a good experiment too! I haven’t really spent any time at the forums, so it’s nice to see some highlights presented on the blog.
