In the second season of our podcast, Inside the Bricks, we take a look at the thriving Detroit Shoreway neighborhood on the west side of Cleveland. Millions of dollars have been invested in the neighborhood over the years, making it a booming neighborhood. But as Justin Glanville, our Senior Producer and Detroit-Shoreway resident, discovered, all that investment can be a double-edged sword for longtime residents of the community. Inside the Bricks: My Changing Neighborhood examines whether the neighborhood can remain diverse or if it’s on a one-way road to full gentrification.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you the second season episodes of Inside the Bricks.

In the second episode, Justin focuses on the new bike lanes and parks being built in the neighborhood and how desirable this is for residents.

Ideastream Public Media’s Inside the Bricks podcast series tells in-depth stories of people in the places they live and work, and in their own words.

You can listen to the latest episode of Inside the Bricks on The Sound of Ideas every Wednesday. You can access episodes on demand on our website. Or you can subscribe and follow the podcast at the provider of your choice.

Cannabis Themed Nail Art Ideas For A Modern Weed Manicure https://linuxbierwanderung.org/cannabis-themed-nail-art-ideas-for-a-modern-weed-manicure/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 17:59:52 +0000 https://linuxbierwanderung.org/cannabis-themed-nail-art-ideas-for-a-modern-weed-manicure/ Classic sheets Take any shade of polish, a sharp nail art toolor – if you have a steady hand – even a bent paperclip (ideally not the same one you used to empty your last bowl), and lots of patience, and any amateur artist can pull off a seven-pointed leaf shape. mini leaf patterns A […]]]>

Classic sheets

Take any shade of polish, a sharp nail art toolor – if you have a steady hand – even a bent paperclip (ideally not the same one you used to empty your last bowl), and lots of patience, and any amateur artist can pull off a seven-pointed leaf shape.

mini leaf patterns

A big leaf on your nail isn’t the only way to play with a marijuana design, though. If you have a narrower tip tool on hand or opt for nail stickers, think of mini seven-pointed leaf as an ingredient for a pattern – create your own polka dot pot or checkered texture; use them to create a fuzzy stony heart for Galentine’s Day. Make them yours!

weed charms

For those who simply don’t have time for this kind of detail work, there is reusable nail charms that you can affix to your nail with a copious glob of your favorite top coat.

shades of green

Not everyone is ready to wear their love for cannabis so clearly on their sleeve, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting a weed-friendly wink on your nails. The solution? To show creativity! Be conceptual! Take anything and everything green vegetables in your kit for a more subtle watercolor-style ombre ode to weed.

Smoke signals

The leaves and the green speak only part of the cannabis experience. Once the good times kicked in, one thing comes to mind: smoke. Swirls and puffs of fragrant, unmistakable cannabis smoke. It’s a pleasure point of inspiration for those looking for more neutral color palettes on their boards.

420/710/W33D

Why not start the conversation with your fingernails? Cannabis cultivation offers an array of numerical references: 420 for all things weed; 710 for dabbers and vapers – and thanks to censorship on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, new code words like “w33d” and “ouid” have emerged so people can talk about the plant without being flagged. More of a weekend manicure for the most part, but one that’s sure to reveal some weed-friendly friends quickly.

Austin Talks | The 29th arrondissement seeks residents’ ideas on what to fund in the neighborhood https://linuxbierwanderung.org/austin-talks-the-29th-arrondissement-seeks-residents-ideas-on-what-to-fund-in-the-neighborhood/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 01:42:00 +0000 https://linuxbierwanderung.org/austin-talks-the-29th-arrondissement-seeks-residents-ideas-on-what-to-fund-in-the-neighborhood/ West Side residents can still submit project ideas for this year participatory budgeting cycle, the process that allows residents to decide how the neighborhood will spend $1 million in Alderman’s Menu cash. “We are about to end the collection of ideas [phase]said Byron Watson, Director of Infrastructure and Special Projects for the 29th district. “We […]]]>

West Side residents can still submit project ideas for this year participatory budgeting cycle, the process that allows residents to decide how the neighborhood will spend $1 million in Alderman’s Menu cash.

“We are about to end the collection of ideas [phase]said Byron Watson, Director of Infrastructure and Special Projects for the 29th district. “We want to involve our voters [and] listen to them.”

In this phase, all residents of the neighborhood – regardless of age – can come up with ideas to improve their community using the annual menu money allocated by the city. Residents can share their ideas with the service through a submission form or by calling the 29th arrondissement office until Saturday, September 17.

The original deadline – September 15 – has been extended to give more residents a chance to voice their needs, Watson said.

“No idea is a bad idea,” Watson said. “We just have to figure out if this idea can be funded with menu money.”

This is the city of Chicago Office of Budget and Management who determines which projects can be funded with menu money, as these funds are part of the city’s capital improvement budget.

Menu money can be spent on improving the park; sidewalk improvements and repairs; lighting and signaling; public art; street resurfacing; and embellishment. Each year, the City of Chicago allocates $1.5 million in menu money to each of the city’s 50 neighborhoods.

Currently, nine Chicago neighborhoods are engaging their constituents in participatory budgeting processes coordinated by UIC Institute of Major Cities. The role of the UIC Great Cities Institute is to provide information, training and one-on-one technical assistance in each phase of the BP process to residents and service staff, acting as a neutral partner.

“I always have to make sure these projects are done in the same way, and that’s kind of the role I play…just being the neutral partner of the alderman’s staff and the residents, because they each have their own needs,” said Norma Hernandez, community development planner at UIC Great Cities Institute. “And sometimes you can have conflicts.”

After finalizing the idea collection phase, all ideas will be analyzed and evaluated by community representatives and service staff to determine if they are eligible for menu money and if they are viable.

Only viable ideas that can be funded with menu money will make it to the ballot, Watson said.

Later this year, neighborhood residents will vote to determine the winning project(s). Residents will also decide how much menu money should be spent on street resurfacing, a priority for Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th). Watson said the alderman’s office needs a floor of at least $600,000 and wants residents to consider whether they want to spend up to $1 million on street resurfacing.

“It gets them thinking about how the money is allocated,” Watson said, adding that participatory budgeting helps educate residents about what local governments need to consider when making funding decisions.

If more money is allocated to street resurfacing, less money is available to be spent on projects proposed by residents, Watson said.

Thea Crum, associate director of the Neighborhoods Initiative at the UIC Great Cities Institute, said residents involved in PB also learn what government officials need to do to complete a project.

“I think sometimes when you’re out of government you’re like, ‘Why isn’t this just happening? Why can’t you just do this thing? “, Did she say. “And then when you’re actually part of the power of PB, you don’t just say, ‘I want to see this,’ and then expect someone else to do this job. You are actually working hand in hand with the government.

Aldus. Taliaferro first introduced participatory budgeting to the neighborhood in 2017. Some projects selected through participatory budgeting in recent years have included community gardens, a fitness class at the Austin City Hallbike paths, a mural in Columbus Park and public art at Sayre Language Academy.

In the busy city life, we may need more time to rejuvenate our senses and gain a new perspective. For all the workaholics who work Monday through Friday, the mere mention of the word weekend sounds like therapy.

Delhi’s proximity to several hill stations makes it the perfect place to spend a short vacation. However, not all weekends are meant for this. Fortunately, there are plenty of options in the city to indulge in new experiences. Take a break from your busy schedules to do something enjoyable and relaxing. Don’t limit yourself to wasting time sitting on the couch. Wear casual clothes and sneakers, and head out to explore the city and revisit your inner child.

Revisiting the city’s heritage

Heritage walks in Delhi are a great way to learn about the city and its history. Many groups and organizations in the city offer guided tours, each offering unique local experiences. Here is a list of the best walking tours in Delhi. Heritage promotion groups such as INTACH, Delhi by Foot, Master Ji Ki Haveli and Delhi Karavan among others.

Bike tour

If biking is your thing, groups like Delhi by Bike, Delhi by Cycle and SpinMonkey run bike tours including Haveli Tour, Old Delhi Tour, Yamuna Tour, Shah Jahan Tour and many more.

Spend your day at an amusement park

The best way to spend an exciting weekend is to visit the city’s fantastic amusement parks, both indoors and outdoors. You can ride thrilling rides, slide down massive water slides, bounce around in indoor trampoline parks, play video games in arcades, or play laser tag with your friends and family.
This weekend you can have fun at Worlds Of Wonder, Appu Ghar, SkyJumper, Adventure Island, Timezone or Smaaash.

Try indoor ice skating

We understand creeping heat is a limitation. So we came up with a simple solution: indoor ice skating! Slide across the ice on ice skates, fall, laugh and just have fun like never before! You can try it with your friends at ISKATE by Roseate in Gurgaon or Snow World in Noida.

Attend a film screening in the city

No, we’re not talking about going to the cinema to see hit movies. Why not go to a film screening and watch some foreign language movies this weekend? On weekends, many cultural centers and film societies in Delhi hold film screenings of classics and new releases in French, Korean, Italian, Japanese and other languages. If you love watching movies, you must follow film festivals and screenings at institutes such as India Habitat Centre, Max Mueller Bhavan, Alliance Française de Delhi, and Italian Cultural Institute, among others.

Plan a luxury stay

If you cannot travel over the long weekend, we recommend that you plan a stay to recharge your batteries. There are plenty of luxurious, budget-friendly, and even quirky stay options available for the weekend if you want to spend some time relaxing on your own. To brighten up your weekend without traveling too far, check out beautiful properties like Neemrana Fort Palace, ITC Grand Bharat, Andaz Delhi, The Lalit Mangar, The Westin Sohna Resort & Spa, The Roseate New Delhi or Avanti Retreat.

by CESAR SALAZAR

After a summer of lively discussions, the Winona City Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee met again on September 8 to get a recap of some of the ideas from the Comprehensive Plan subcommittees for the future of Winona. Their ideas will help city officials draft a new comprehensive plan.

The overall plan and committees aim to set goals and direction for the future of Winona. Twelve different subcommittees deal with topics ranging from housing and neighborhoods to heritage preservation and government accessibility, and seven of those committees presented their drafts to the steering committee on September 8.

Housing and neighborhood subcommittee

The first presenting subcommittee was the Housing and Neighborhoods Subcommittee, which used the city’s 2016 housing study to guide its work. “You will see a lot of differences in opinions and differences in priorities, but they have all gelled around a strong focus on neighborhood cohesion as we seek to increase housing choice and look for ways to add density in a respectful, collaborative, and community-centered way,” said subcommittee member Amanda Hedlund.

Ideas presented by the subcommittee included relaxing or changing zoning laws around the city to allow for more housing development and support affordable housing for low-income Winonans, first-time home buyers and the homeless. The subcommittee also recommends that the city assess the 30% rule around Winona State University.

Land Use Planning Sub-Committee

Land Use shared some of the sentiments and ideas with the Housing and Neighborhood Subcommittee. “…Probably the most important thing that we talked about in our land use subcommittee was flexibility: flexibility for development, flexibility for housing,” said subcommittee member Steve Young and member of the city council.

The land use subcommittee proposed that the city could condense land use designations from 19 to 13, “thicken” housing density by allowing owner-occupied duplexes and triplexes in more parts of the city, facilitating new residential subdivisions while balancing development and the environment, and the expansion of mixed-use areas on Highway 43 and County Road 44. This included recommendations for evaluating protection rules city ​​bluffs.

Economic Development Sub-Committee

The next sub-committee focused on expanding Winona’s economic presence in the area by attracting new residents to the area. “I think that’s probably our most important [goal] if we really want to see economic growth in and around Winona: how do we get more people here? Subcommittee member Mike Dieter asked in his presentation. Dieter pointed to the number of people in the room who moved to Winona because of its attractions and said the city should publicize these assets.

The objectives presented by the economic development sub-committee included the establishment of a campaign to attract residents similar to Think Eau Claire. Essentially, the goal would be to give people a reason to move to Winona.

The second goal is to provide a strong community culture for businesses to put down roots here, which could include businesses offering onsite child care services similar to Kwik Trip in La Crosse, Wis.

Another goal was to start adopting electric vehicle charging stations in the city for travelers, which would allow travelers to spend their money in Winona while waiting for their vehicle to charge. Dieter added that EV adoption is approaching and Winona could attract visitors while the rest of the state catches up.

Heritage Preservation Sub-Committee

The Heritage Preservation Sub-Committee aims to educate the public about the historical significance of Winona’s buildings and neighborhoods. “We have historic homes and buildings that would be great for tourism and attract people,” said subcommittee member Aaron Perleberg. “A lot of the things we’re talking about here are outreach, education and outreach to current owners.”

Some of the ideas presented by the subcommittee included adding signs to historic homes or neighborhoods that would provide details of the historical significance of those areas; recognize, create and communicate financial incentives for reinvestment in historic neighborhoods and properties; and the establishment of ordinances to address and prevent the negligent demolition of buildings. Negligent demolition refers to historic properties falling into such disrepair that they must be demolished.

Transportation Sub-Committee

The goals drafted by the transportation subcommittee were to address some of the issues that some Winonans are currently facing. “We want the compensation plan to prioritize making Winona transportation accessible to all of its users; transit of vehicles, bikes and walkers,” said subcommittee member Mitch Johnson. “We would like to see the ideas that we have all come up with over the past 15 years being implemented.” Johnson referred to how the 2007 comprehensive plan’s transportation targets had not been met.

The transportation subcommittee’s goals included rerouting truck routes and establishing citywide walking and cycling trail networks to make the city much more accessible to non-motorized modes of transportation.

Accessible Government Sub-Committee

The other subcommittee at the comprehensive plan meeting was the Accessible Government Subcommittee, which seeks to facilitate communication and improve relations between the city and its residents. “The purpose of the sub-committee was to look at how communication can be facilitated and increased and how to bring more people into the fold of local government and what are we doing here?” said Winona city planner Carlos Espinosa.

According to subcommittee member Emily Kurash Casey, one of the subcommittee’s concerns was the lack of city staff who communicate directly with the public. The sub-committee has set itself the goal of creating a position or department responsible for the city’s communications with the public. It has also set itself the goal of making it easier for Winonians to understand how the city and local government work and to present themselves to local offices and committees in order to have broader and more diverse participation in city functions. .

Next steps

The next steps in the overall plan are to continue finalizing the draft targets. According to Espinosa, the intention is to have the project ready before the holidays. The overall plan steering committee is to hold a few more meetings to suggest changes or add comments to the current draft plan, as well as to hear from other sub-committees that didn’t show up that day later in September and October . City staff expect to conclude the overall planning process in the spring of 2023.

QUINCY (WGEM) — Residents of the three states shared their ideas on how to improve Illinois 57 at a meeting Thursday night.

Through a study on the links between planning and the environment, the Illinois Department of Transportation is investigating improvements related to transportation.

Authorities want to improve traffic flow and make it safer for residents who live and work along the highway.

“We have so much truck traffic. You have Kohl’s there, Huber, ADM, you have the farming community,” said Quincy Mayor Mike Troup, who was in attendance.

IDOT could make roads two-way, improve intersections and crosswalks, or build a Marblehead bypass, among other ideas.

The project spans between Broadway Street in Quincy and I-172 south of Marblehead, which is approximately 13 miles long.

“We thought it was a good time for us to look at alternatives, to see what needed to be done on Corridor 57 to ensure it safely accommodated traffic and all users of the region,” said IDOT Region 4 engineer Jeff Myers.

Many people who attended Thursday’s meeting live and work along the highway.

“I have concerns for everyone involved because it affects people where they live, agriculture and also where all the businesses are along Highway 57 and how it’s going to inconvenience them,” said participant Rich Simmons.

Douglas Peterson is a downtown business owner who thinks improving traffic flow and adding bike lanes will benefit the city.

“Anytime you can develop downtown and whenever you can make it easier to access downtown for places outside, the better it will be for all of us so we can bring more people to Quincy more quickly,” Peterson said.

Troup said the project could make it easier for drivers traveling out of state.

IDOT plans to graduate in the winter of this year. Once the study is complete, IDOT will coordinate with the Federal Highway Administration.

Myers said they still have no funding for the project.

Plan the map

The big reveal is here!

The Portland Bureau of Transportation has spent the past 16 months learning about the needs and nuances of our city’s northern peninsula and they have just released a list of projects they would like to build to make it more enjoyable for the cycling, walking and public transport. .

North Portland on the move is a planning process that was launched in April 2021. After doing a heap of outreach, PBOT today said in a statement that: ‘We have always heard that the people of North Portland would like to see the emphasis on safer speeds, crossings and bike options for community members. of all ages. »

Also today they launched an online open day that shares 38 different projects to achieve these goals. Projects are divided into four categories: Corridor Improvements, Critical Connections, Neighborhood Greenways, Public Spaces and Mobility Hubs. There’s a map (below) where you can click and learn more about each.

There are several very exciting projects on the list. Imagine if we have:

  • new bike lanes on N Willamette Blvd from the train tracks to downtown St. Johns;
  • a new north-south neighborhood greenway on northern Montana between Alberta and Rosa Parks Way (as an alternative to Interstate Avenue);
  • new cycle lanes on Interstate N between Killingsworth and Lombard;
  • traffic calming and safer crossings on N Portsmouth between Willamette and Columbia;
  • or a new path along Columbia to (finally!) connect to the end of the Peninsula Crossing Trail.

And beyond the traditional infrastructure projects, they also included six potential plazas and “mobility hub” locations:

  • Downtown St. Johns Plaza
  • Charleston Street Square
  • New Columbia Mobility Center
  • University of Portland Mobility Center
  • Kenton Town Center Mobility Hub
  • Arbor Lodge Park Plaza
Slide from the PBOT Open House.

Everything is possible with this plan. Of course, there will be no money directly tied to the NPIM; but PBOT has a history of spending money (as it becomes available) in line with these “In Motion” plans (*See the exciting update below. It is silver!). Adopting a plan like this also helps create the political urgency required for the funding to appear – so it’s a positive feedback loop all around.

*UPDATE12:20 p.m.: Turns out PBOT actually Is already have money in reserve for it. So far, they have set aside $500,000 from the Fixing Our Streets (gas tax) program, $100,000 from their Pedestrian Network fundraising program and $80,000 from the Missing Links program. That’s $680,000 to revive NPIM. PBOT tells me they plan to spend that money in the first two years after the plan is adopted.

How do I tell PBOT which ones to build first? Visit the Open Day online and make your priorities and ideas known.

PBOT will take that feedback, pair it with their other core values ​​(like fairness, feasibility, etc.), raise it to the political mast, and come up with a list of “top tier” projects later this fall.

According to their latest schedule, they will continue to refine the slate of projects and find sources of funding from the fall through the spring of 2023, and then have the plan passed by the board that summer.

If all goes according to plan, I bet we could see some of NPIM’s best projects being installed early next summer. So go to this open day and help achieve it. The open day ends on September 30.

In an effort to revitalize Docklands and increase visitation, new events taking place in the area will be prioritized during the selection process for City Activation Grants.

The $5million City Revitalization Events Support Scheme (CRESP) was announced on August 8 as part of the Melbourne City Labor Government’s $200million Melbourne City Revitalization Fund and Andrews.

CRESP will also provide funding to organizers of successful events to support them in their efforts to make Melbourne the event capital it has always been known for.

“Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital, and we are delighted to add events to our calendar to fill our streets and lanes with people, color and vibrancy,” Mayor Sally Capp said.

“We know the events are driving Melbourne’s recovery – drawing millions of people to the city to shop, dine and explore, giving our city businesses a much-needed boost.”

For those wishing to make their ideas heard for the revitalization of Docklands in 2023, CRESP is calling for all applications to be submitted by 5 p.m. on September 5.

Until then, Docklands can expect the launch of two of the 18 winners of the city’s latest round of activation grants for the second half of the year, which will take place in the local area.

The latest round is part of the City of Melbourne’s $100million joint stimulus fund between the City of Melbourne and the Victorian government.

To celebrate the start of spring, Floral by the Docklands and Bike Valet will transform the waterfront into a floral paradise with street art installations and encourage people to cycle.

Already slated for the first three Saturdays and Sundays in September, Bike Valet is being launched by the Bicycle Network, in partnership with the Docklands Chamber of Commerce as part of the Docklands Dollars scheme.

The service will work by providing a free bike valet service to everyone cycling in Docklands in the district, and will allow them to receive cashback of up to $25 to spend in the Docklands district.

“We want to show Melburnians that bicycles are an easy and fun way to get around the city,” said Bicycle Network CEO Alison McCormack.

“Bikes have the power to make our cities more sustainable, our roads less congested and our communities healthier. But the first step is for people to try out the bikes. That’s what the Docklands Dollars Scheme is for.

“Not only will Melburnians have a fun day on their bikes, they will receive generous rewards for it.”

Attendees who want to get involved can ride their bikes directly to Melbourne Star at 101 Waterfront Way on selected days when the event is taking place, then continue to enjoy a great day riding around Docklands. •
