Certain groups in Rochester want the population to grow by 20,000 to 30,000 and narrow certain streets to one lane each way. Seems counterproductive to me.
People are supposed to drive to a "transportation hub" and catch a bus for work or shopping downtown. Then ride the bus back to the transportation hub and drive home. This will not be very popular with Rochester residents. People like to drive to work and home on their own schedule, not a schedule decided for them.
I suggest that the people Gov. Dayton appointed to the DMCC from St. Paul and Minneapolis resign and take their ideas back to the big city with them.
