Minnesota’s Fall Lake resident Ed Seliskar was given a notice of public hearing by Lake County Planning & Zoning regarding the use of the land to build Silver Rapids Lodge.
The plan is under consideration to add 49 more RV campsites and support buildings as an addition to the resort that is in talks with a potential new owner, a report said.
Seliskar’s concern was that, with an increase in traffic, the speed limit needs to be decreased on the Kawishiwi Trail in the resort region.
“In the event this does happen, the 49 additional campsites,” said Ed Seliskar, “which would be accessed off Ernie’s Road, safety reasons I would like to see Ernie’s Road realigned the way it was kind of proposed here the last three months. Have it go through the original gravel pits.”
“And is it possible, can the township petition the county?” asked Ed Seliskar. “We’re going to have a lot of traffic on this road. It’s 49 more units, it’s going to be huge, both on Ernie’s Road and the county road. My concern is getting the speed limit lowered between the town garage and Sunset Road to 30 mile per hour.”
Ed Seliskar said he has tried to get a hidden driveway signage from the county and was informed that security was on him.
The board agreed that traffic will be a problem.
