At some point, it's possible that there will be a blog post celebrating a building permit and a committed construction start date. But that seems to still be somewhere in the future. It's becoming unbelievable to us that the City of Minneapolis can take so long to review a project that surpasses building code requirements and conforms to all zoning code limits, but we seem to have no power to change this. Yesterday, however, I mailed a letter to City Council ward member Linea Palmisano registering our frustration with the process. We'll see if it does any good.
