  2. Per Mark Twain… “It’s a good thing we don’t get all the government we pay for”.

  3. Bill,
    Did you have any involvement with this plan? What’s going to be the effect on the lake’s propertyv values and such…

  4. I did attend several meetings when the group first formed. The original idea was form a large lake development plan that could, hopefully, be used as a model for other large Minnesota lakes. The goal was to regulate lakeshore development so the lake, as a natural resource, remained intact. The effort was well intended but, it seems to me, that when a government entity tries to establish a plan that will satisfy all affected parties… a no-one-gets-harmed solution is an elusive goal.

    The impact on the lake is yet to be determined.
