  1. To be clear, I'm very anti them inside Eola. Granted I'm also anti the cops being on bikes within Eola as well since bikes aren't allowed. Set the example.
  2. Oh yeah, I fully understand why they set the limit where they did. But I think its because they're looking at the problem the wrong way. Except on MAJOR streets (Orange, Rosalind, South), scooter riding should be in the street. Same as bicycling.
  3. As, I believe, the most prominent scooter fan on this forum, it will most definitely be to let her know I disagree with her vote. My biggest problem with the scooter system is the nonsensical 10mph limit (most cities I've been to have it at 12 or 15), and the fact they are OVERLY concentrated in the CBD, so I actually use them less than I'd like. Just because users are bad doesn't mean we should scrap the entire concept that is literally perfect for solving last mile transit. Add additional regulation. Make it so the city can subpoena and fine users that park improperly. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. ESPECIALLY during Covid. I live in Wadeview. Right now if I want to go support local businesses downtown or in Hourglass, I either have to walk 40 minutes or get in an Uber. Scooters solve this.
  4. Note to self, e-mail Patty being that I'm one of her constituents.
  5. In fairness, this is the project I went to an MPB meeting to complain about due to the lack of storefront in the building. Didn't have to be retail. Could have been a damn Ale House.
  6. I went once in late summer. The menu was pitiful, and the food was lackluster. This was my bacon apple grilled cheese. ... Wut. Why in the world would you open a downtown food spot without having been there?
  7. Yeah, its pretty common in urban areas up north, but I hate it just as much!
  8. Yeah, they've been building on the site of the old vet hospital for months. Its a nice building for sure. Intrigued to see what happens with the old location. BANK THEMED BAR?!
  9. Yeah the 3 that stick in my head are Post (the garage is across the street), Solaire (that windy ramp up to level 4 gives me nightmares of scratching my car), and 55W (majority of resident parking isn't until level 8 (I was on 9 and it didn't bother me a ton, but it definitely discouraged making multiple car trips a day).
  10. Is it just me or do they seem super not uhhh deep? The floor plans show a "bedroom" (more like an office maybe) on the first floor that you walk into off of Pineloch before the steps to the main living area/garage, but when I walk by these a few times a week they feel much smaller than similar units I've been in.
  11. To be clear. CMX has owned Cobb since 2017. This is more of a rebranding than new ownership. Similar to how FedEx kept the Kinkos name for 5+ years before retiring it.
  12. I'm a Giant Eagle man. Back in my day, they were all Kro-ghettos.

    I largely hated the e bikes. Way too heavy and bulky with no shocks. With that said, yes I wish we could have both so bike casuals had the option if they wanted. I know it's a running joke that I'm the forum drunk, but short one-way trips are the vast majority of the business model. Oh, I'm drinking downtown and I have friends that are at Hammered Lamb. Oh, I'm running late leaving my apartment and people are waiting on me for Brunch at Stubborn Mule. Let's have dinner at Delaney Tavern but then go downtown for the night. You don't want to take your personal bike or scooter (I actually know 3 people that have bought their own scooter because there aren't ENOUGH bird/lime and/or there are too many regulations on them) because then you have to move it with you when bar hopping and/or have to come back the next day to get it and hope no one stole it.
