Developers must help build Minneapolis parks

Dec 23, 2013 Full story: Star Tribune 14

Developers in Minneapolis will be required to contribute land for parks - or the money to buy it - under a provision that will take effect Jan. 1. The measure , passed by the City Council Dec. 6 and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board last week, is similar to long-standing requirements in dozens of other metro cities.

In the eyes of Liberal, requiring a donation from others by rule of law, or at the end of a gun barrel, is charity.

To the contrary, it simply raises the price of the finished product, and the stupid Libs then sit around and wonder why on one can afford their products.

From the article: "Developer Kelly Doran, who has built extensive residential and commercial properties in Minneapolis in recent years, said he believes the required contributions from developers for parks will simply jack up the cost of development and, by extension, sale and rental prices for residents."

Ignorant Democrat City Rulers are part of the reason why middle class families are non-existent in the City of Minneapolis.

Red, one has to admire your adherence to the Lib talking points day in and day out - especially when the facts for the opposite are staring you in the face every single day.

Minneapolis has become a mini-Detroit with their unfunded liabilities, cronyism within City Hall, and reliance on sources outside of the city for funding (LGA and the Democrat legislature gifting the city with hundreds of millions of dollars annually).

As with Detroit, it is about to blow up in their faces. And they will then point fingers everywhere except where it belongs - on their own fiscal irresponsibility.

Go for it Minneapolis! Union proud, union strong.

What does any of this have to do with the government extorting money from private developers for projects they clearly can't afford? Try to address the topic at hand instead of telling us what you had for breakfast.

Gee whiz Rocky, that 3/4 billion dollar public money donation to the Wilf family and the NFL would have come in right handy for building some parks or something now wouldn't it?

Go Governor Googly Eyes and the Mn Legislature!!

But but but, Muderapolis taxpayers and Minnesota taxpayers are funding a $400,000,000 rebirth of the east side of Muderapolis. That is in addition to the 3/4 BILLION being given to the Wilf's, thanks to Jewlie Rosen, a staunch Republican.

Corruption runs across party lines in Minnesota but not across religious lines.

First of all I don't appericate YOU calling me red I would prefer that you call me what you been calling me the Fake black Guy I have gotten use to it.
Also fake man you're a reptile(snake) or maybe a rexasuarus I know that you still have dreams of being rich and wealthy but it's your fault that you never finish your education or that you come from the lower class of society(trash) it's not my fault don't blame me for your less then fortunate gene pool. upcoming
I have every right to have civic pride in Minneapolis and the State of Minnesota unlike you I'm proud of the progress the cities have made and our progress is not based on the rich or supply side economics for our citizens to prosper screw the one percenters and their profit money making agenda the city is right(correct) to make developers pay more just look at the warehouse district and how well the old factories have now become expensive lofts the same with the U area and we always go for more parks and recreation and we are getting away from fossil fuel so that we can breath fresher air and we do need more parks to compliment our vast clean freshwater lakes also what do Detroit have to do with Minneapolis parks?
but since you want and have to beetch about the wonderful country that we live in well I still say that Detroit will be a renaissance city once again once the citizens realize that Governor Synder is just a water boy for the privatization crowd.
And do you every have a nice day? I bet that your ex-husband got on the first bus leaving your miserable tail you just to spread miserly and BTW: did you get free stuff(Gifts) for Xmas hahahaha Oh forgiven me you don't recognize Xmas giving and loving is not a virtue of yours.

Isn't that a special way you have with words. Your use of the English language is such a refreshing and informative look at your inner soul.

I have an 11 year old nephew that goes to Providence Academy. He has a better grasp on the pending financial doom that Minneapolis is facing than you have. That really is an eye opener since there are a lot of people just like you who follow their government rulers like sheep.

Hey, do you think Kwame will come back and be the savior for Detroit like Barry is the savior for the United States? I sure miss old Kwame.

Come on idiot get off of your doom and gloom BS the sky is not falling,the sky is not falling,
happy days are here again Minneapolis is a leader in the 21st century urban model.
Why are you so much of a loser? it's must be in your inherited gene pool.

Is their anything GOOD and Postive in your worthless hateful life? anything? Obama is doing good and we as a country will move forward, and so will Detroit and stop lying so much
we as a people will prosper and we will have good faith and good luck.
and as far as your nephew goes I don't believe you he's probably aware of your GOPT indoctrination and probably can't wait to grow up and become a DEMOCRAT and make his own judgement about how he feels about his life and world even though he knows that it sucks to have an wicked loony aunt like you. hahaha you probably ruin his Xmas.
I wonder if you even gave the poor kid a gift with your cheap as.
One more thing Pope Francis is a marxist and a socialist will you have your nephew taken out of that find catholic school?

Since you missed (or just ignored) it the question while attempting to be insulting and rude, I will ask again.

What does any of this have to do with the government extorting money from private developers for projects they clearly can't afford and don't really need?

Hey, stop picking on my friend Red.

He did not miss or ignore the question. He is incapable of forming a plausible response to your inquiry. He can not help it that he is not smart enough to form his own opinions.

Pope we know that's he everything that you're against he has to much love and humanity for you baggers types.
Rush is a capitalist and an entertainer, just like big eddie. Sarah Palin is pretty much the same thing. She's just trying to build her empire like they are. She was a poor choice for a running mate to an equally poor candidate.

And I have no problem with the pope. He doing what popes should do. He's not much different than his predecessors. Listen to him some time. Although the delivery varies, the message has not changed for quite some time.
