I joined ActiveRain about two years ago and after awhile found that I was spending too much time reading the responses that Realtors, Lenders and others sent regarding the original Attention-Getting Headlines. This is one of the few times I've been back to check out ActiveRain. Regarding the "STUPID" headline I skimmed through way too many responses.

A Thursday, January 31st, article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune was the first I’ve known about a plan for a pavillion to be built on what is now a public park, on public land. The proposed Pavillion would block the view of the lake at the end of the street. It seems fair to say that downtown main street is named Water ST leading visitors to Excelsior’s incredible view of Lake Minnetonka. I’ve lived in Tonka Bay for 23 years and Excelsior feels like home, hence the interest. Unfortunately, the Star did not discuss another proposed project, a hotel to be located at the end of Water St in the old Pizza Hut location. The hotel would boast views of Lake Minnetonka from almost every room. The Pavillion, a 35 foot tall structure (taller than city requirements) would also effectively block t...
