The plans were opposed by some residential neighbors and 4th District City Councilor Garry Krause, who represents the area on Maple Grove Road.

Just build it and quit pandering to a small group who does what residents up here do best…..complain. They wonder why the city never grows and cannot pay for its own services, yet they whine when a new development wants to be created. If we want growth as a city, we cannot pick and choose.

How MUCH public opposition? Awfully wimpy of ZMC to back down so easily.
What is there to oppose? I haven’t seen the plans for the hotel but I reckon the opposition is opposed to anything in principle which = NIMBYism.
The site is ripe and ready for a motel (I suspect it’s more motel than hotel). Look at it as it stands. The place is an eyesore. A new hotel would have probably been accompanied by road improvements and landscaping to boot.
That won’t occur now.
So, NIMBYs don’t complain about your high property taxes, traffic congestion, drainage or the decaying state of affairs on that stretch of frontage ’cause it ain’t gonna change thanks to you.
