Re: “Down by the Riverside

Parking is exactly what they dont need. Parking in Tom Lee is exactly whats hurting the park now. On the weekends its a bunch idiots that park just to show of their cars and loud motorcycles. There should only be parking for handicap and school buses.

Do you notice any parking lots in Central Park NYC, Grant Park Chicago or any other urban park in a major city? Walk or bike you fat, lazy people!

Re: “'Gourmet' Grocery Remains in Revised 'Midtown Market'

I remember reading sometime last year - the main obstacle holding up the project was Belz waiting on Methodist Diagnostic Center to relocate. Its always something to slow progress.

I think the goal is for the property to look as shitty as possible so the city will cave in on the tax breaks.
....in the meantime we have a hulking pile of crap on the corner or Union and McLean. At least bulldoze it so we dont have to look at that eyesore anymore.

Re: “Tennessee AG: Memphis Pot Law Illegal

These puppets in office at the state level trying to push their views on the cities are the same that preach about states rights and less Federal power. HYPOCRITES!

Re: “RDC: Closing Riverside One Option to Alleviate 'Cruising' Gridlock

Just get rid of the parking lot except for the handicap and school bus parking. If you want to enjoy the park, ride a bike or park on Front st and walk your fat ass down there.

And also get rid of the parking in Greenbelt Park on Mud Island. Its only dirt-bags gawking at the runners.

Re: “Council Gives Zoo Greensward Control

I really dont understand why the Zoo/City couldn't have used the land across East Parkway that was just auctioned off to a developer a few months ago. A simple parking structure and a shuttle train (like the zoo already uses) would solve this issue. Actually I believe there is still plenty of space rotting away between Sam Cooper and Summer @ East Parkway

Re: “UPDATE: Bike Lanes, Turn Lanes Headed to Union Avenue

"Apparently, lessons from Riverside Drive remain unlearned"

Riverside Drive functioned just fine with bike lanes, it was the squeaky wheel - busy bodies that likely don't even go downtown complaining to their city council rep that got it reversed.

Re: “A Bridge Too Far

While I don't disagree with the article, I find it hilarious that people of West Memphis are so against the bridge closure because of traffic backups and delays. I cannot remember a time when there wasn't some type of ridiculous Interstate construction project going on over there. I'm sure most are pork projects to line pockets. While doing all of these I-40 rebuild projects from Memphis to Little Rock over the last few years they could made it 6 lanes. The truck traffic is insane!
