As a long time resident in the CR Blvd area I can say "not fast enough".Too bad the City council caved to the interest of a small vocal fear mongering group..we would have had a community center by now also. With that said, it is getting better, keep pushing..and can we convince a coffee shop to open on the south side of CR Blvd for the morning commuters? business idea anyone?

I don't see a hotel being a draw...tourism? business travelers? Doubt it. What I do see is riverfront ripe for a place like a Psycho Suzi's just down the river in Minneapolis, or better yet a place where boaters can join in like a Maynard's or Lord Fletcher's on Lake Minnetonka. It would be the only establishment on the river north of the dam as far as I can tell. I don't think Anoka or Champlin have a place like that.
