I think I have to stop subscribing to Dave Tinjum’s wonderful newsletter – the Mill City Times! I want to be in Minneapolis to participate in almost every meeting he included in his post today!

I am sure there will be plenty of voices at tonite’s Mill District Meeting about diverting water away from St. Anthony Falls with new hydro projects. We’ve talked so much about Crown Hydro, one would think it would go away…but of course not; and added to that is A Mill Hydro and Symphony Hydro which I know very little about –and then Xcel gets added to the mix as they want to more water from the falls as well. It’s scary to think about the answer to Dave’s question: “Will the Falls run dry two years from now?”

And then tomorrow begins the planning for the East Bank Bike and Pedestrian Trails from Plymouth Avenue to Marshall…..I KNOW that will be well attended by local residents and MRP…but still, East Bank is my FIRST LOVE and it will be hard to miss the meeting.

And then there is the East Downtown FORUM on Thursday at Valspar, and an Elliot Park Neighborhood Meeting with its update on the Armory among other things …..and the draft of Nicollet Island-East Bank Small Area plan is now available along with Marcy Holmes/Dinkytown Master Plan AND the Ramen Attack on Sept 28  and the Water Works Design which is almost done….not to mention comments are due Sept 30 on the Mississippi River Critical Area Rulemaking. AND, I already missed the Anfinson event last week.

Makes me sad to be missing all this despite the fact that my” plate” is filling fast here in Rochester.
