Sorry buddy, even though joe wins the election (primary, but, hopefully, the whole fandango), buttigieg has the best pedigree. I voted for bernie 4 years ago, still like 'em, but i don't feel his vision is the correct direction at this point. Need something more... incremental. And a decorated officer > bone spurs.
Mine goes to Amy—she can pull the country together and that is a HUGE task
He has never worked a day in his life but he is claiming it's okay to take more taxes from working people to give it too whomever he feels deserves your money and people think that's revolutionary??? It's theft and slavery. FUCK BERNIE AND EVERYONE HE RIDES IN ON
Excellent! Sanders all the way.
I like Warren. But not sure if the country is ready for her.
I really like Pete except for his stand on abolishing the electoral college.
Absolutely, my dude!
Nope. He probably would have won the election last time, but he (and Biden) are too old now. I’ll stick with the. libertarians again. Can’t vote for either party 😢
We deserve Bernie!
Spoils of riches!
Hope! No socialism for me.
Never would I vote for Sanders he is not for the people and the country,
As a strong American female I am NOT afraid of President Trumps effect on my rights as a woman.
With so many empty buildings/storefronts, this feels like the wrong question to be asking. It's like planning an addition to your house, when you've got broken windows that need fixing. Finding uses for some of the space we already have (and maybe figuring out a way to stop some major store or another from closing every month or so), seems like a better idea than worrying about constructing a bunch of tall buildings among empty husks.
Stepped away from the lake to preserve lakefront character. 2:3:5 stories incrementally by block or zone. 80 feet is plenty tall, lots of room for infill in the city for teardowns and increased density without increasing the height limit. Glass towers and Marquette do not mix.Convince the DDA to sell the money losing downtown parking structure for a developer to build up with a private parking garage underneath. Heck, just like the FLDG2 waterfront apartments.
I agree they should leave the lakeshore alone. They're building all kinds of condos and shit....I get it, money can be made from lakeshore condos, but Marquette needs to stop blocking the view of the lake. I moved away for 2 years, and when I came back this past July the lakefront was all built up...it was sad and infuriating.
Marquette is a unique gift simply because of the way it currently exists. If we continue to build up and build out we are going to become just like every other generic community. And then we'll have lost what makes it special. I don't believe that's something we want to do.
I say build vertically. We need more than 7-8 floors for some developments. Looking at Harbor Tower apartments in Escanaba, which is taller than Snowberry Heights, I'd say that helped their housing problem
Every developer should have to lobby for their variance. It should equate to smart growth principles.
We don’t need more condos or high rise buildings along the lakeshore. There is plenty of land elsewhere that those money hungry property developers can build on. How about the old Marquette mall lot? Make them build there
If population is expected to keep increasing, then building up is by far the preferred solution over more sprawl. Better public transportation and walkability, lower environmental impact.
New development NONE.
Development does not equate to progress. Sustainability, income equality and affordable housing does. Community Benefit Agreements are needed.
