Wayzata's development "boom" is bringing restaurants seeking a more wealthy "urban" neighborhood, leading to a restaurant boom where simply proximity to other restaurants is the reason more want to be there.

Excelsior has begun community meeting on what the future should be for Excelsior's "East Town".

So this is going in Excelsior. The town seems to be getting exactly the kind of small scale development they asked for.

It’ll be hemmed in by a funeral home, a post office, and a noxious gas station. A unit will likely go for more than a million. But it’ll sell in a heartbeat because Excelsior.

Excelsior residents fight tear downs replacing the character of lake cottages with huge and bland.

Proposal to redevelop the Wayzata Brew Works/Boat Works into a five story multi use. Condos.

It’s a fine thing to see the western side of Wayzata get attention. I’d like the regional trail network from Hopkins to get a more direct link to Wayzata some year. And soon!

Only real way good trail connection from Hopkins to Wayzeta I see is putting a trail on Mcginty Rd and have it connect to to the Minnetonka LRT trail at Minnetonka Blvd, but that's mainly from personal experience since my family use to have this round trip where we would bike towards Carver Park Reserve and cut through it to get to St Bonifacius on Highway 7 for a bit and then take the Dakota rail trail to Wayzeta before ending up back on the Minnetonka LRT trail via Mcginty Rd.

McGinty Road trail would be great.
