Call for Entries! Top 10 Worst Twin CIties Planning Decisions
The recent Metrodome implosion has propelled me to act on a long-standing idea that's been rattling around my head. Finally, perhaps we can answer the question: What is the Twin Cities' single worst urban planning decision?
Send me your terrible, your poor, your huddled masses of bricks and concrete, yearning not to be asinine. Send me any ideas you might have for what you think is the worst move in the history of TC planning! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment here.
But first, a ground rule...
These fiascos have to be the right kind of fiasco. The Metrodome is a good example of the kind of thing I'm talking about. You can picture a dozen dudes in suits in a room sitting around and convincing themselves that building a giant metrodome is a good idea. That's the scale at which I'd like these bad decisions to be made.
So, nothing totally huge. Nothing like "the interstate highway system" (sorry Luke!) or "the mortgage interest deduction". It has to be smaller than that, something you can get your mind around.
I've a few things in mind. The Metrodome is one of them. What is your idea for the worst planning move in the history of the the Twin Cities?
I hope we can figure this out in time for the New Year!
