Three Rivers Park District, the people that can't afford to fix the Coon Rapids Dam and the Met Council, the folks that add thousands of dollars to the cost of a new home with WAC and SAC charges that are now dwindling. This money doesn't fall from the sky! It's taxes stupid! Stop spending! Pat Walker

I do not want to listen to other people's music. Nor, apparently, do many others - else you wouldn't see so many people walking around plugged into their MP3 players. Although the Maple Grove setting is cool, I'm going to be mighty irritated this summer if I have to listen to it while I'm out in what used to be a quiet backyard. Wonder if our taxes will go down now that it's built?

These cost tax dollars to construct. They take land off of the tax rolls who wants a property tax increase??? If a privite company wanted to do this; local governments would impose noise regs. If the gov't does this the citizens get no noise protection.

These won't last. Just look at the one in Anoka along the Rum River.
