Rethinking University Avenue before the trains roll

Another from the Pioneer Press, which was quite good today, I might add, I think it has become a better paper than the Star Tribune: Rethinking University Avenue before the trains roll discusses rezoning University in advance of the Central Corridor LRT.

"Change is hard. ... A guy started his question to me last night, 'University Avenue can't be all housing and coffee shops.' "

While I think upzoning University is a good idea given the virtual certainty of the LRT investment, there is clearly skepticism about the planners ideas. Perhaps the excessive use of renderings of upper middle class white people sipping Lattes on a retail street has come home to roost.
