    No.. they finally found it after what… a year?

    Hoping it works, but remember this just another attempt to fix the leak. As was the last effort.

    Couldn’t the pedestrians just walk 1 block north or south to a crosswalk at a light? Why disrupt the flow of traffic?

    Don’t think it’s a matter of crossing Sawmill. It’s more a problem of crossing 270 using the interchange.

    Is that not the law here?
    I mean, aren’t you legally obligated to stop for people who are waiting at crosswalks?

    If so, why would they have crosswalk lights? (yeah, I know this is an old post, but it’s an interesting question)

    Woe, glad to see that city council was all over this “emergency” legislation to pass more money on to Nationwide.

    ^^^Exactly. Our whole economy from the 1950s to the 2000s was based on suburbanization…and all the crap to service suburbanization (washers, toasters, cars, highways, bridges). Unfortunately, that can’t go on forever (it’s already basically stopped) or we stretch our tax base so thin (which we have already done). As a global community, we have to realize that “growth” as we knew it in the last 60 years is a thing of the past. We have to focus on policies that don’t anticipate extensive growth, but rather put our $$$ into projects and services that improve and protect quality of life.

    Wow, urbanists don’t know what they’re missing without the benfits of washers, toasters, cars, highways or bridges.

    Of course, they could always fill the Nationwide Arena floor with food trucks and plasitic tables. That’ll have ’em pouring in.

    So if the two best teams in Hockey are losing money and going on the market, that can’t be good news for the BJ’s or Nationwide Arena.

    Looking more and more like the taxpayers got a royal screwing from city/county officials.

    I would think there is a privacy issue with how the pool is oriented with relation to the park. Since it is a public park, there are going to be “undesirables” hanging around there every once in a while. If they have a clear view of the pool, then all of those scantily clad women (or men) are fair game for gawking. There ARE perverts out there that I’m sure would take advantage. If anything, the pool should have been elevated a floor or two on a tiered section so that the park was still in full view but the pool would be out of view of the public. Of course, that just adds to the cost.

    So wouldn’t they be lurking at Bicentennial Park fountains also?

    That’s a horrible plan. It’ll never work. It will destroy the vitality and urban feel of the neighborhood and by extension most of the downtown area. It sucks. Don’t know why, it just does.

    (but I’ll likely shop there anyway)

    OK, let’s look at the data before the recession in 43215 (2004-2006): loss of 1,944 jobs and 94 businesses. As per my post above, there is no more current data available. Can I get your credibility now? :-)

    Only when you agree. :)

    This doesn’t sound like something a real Jeep person would say.
