stp: Big Box Size Limits

I overheard some Green Party people talking about pushing for a city ordinance on big box store size. A bunch of cities have done this, like Madison WI and Bozeman MT. Is it a good idea? Well, it wouldn't accomplish much, except along University Avenue, where the big boxes seem to have a nest, and are reproducing at a regular rate.

The push would seem direced at the Midway bus barn site on Snelling, which, I'm told, used to be where all the streetcars had their HQ. The ground there used to be filled with streetcar tracks, and the little buggers would pop in and out of there on their little rails with their little bells ringing...

But I digress.
