Steve Fletcher's recent column about the need for a quality hotel on the waterfront is right on the mark. It should be on US-23S probably at Mich-e-ke-wis park - as the hotel would need the exposure to US-23 traffic. A public vote to sell might be difficult, how about a long-term lease with a provision the beach itself remain open to public use. The beach would have much more public appeal, use and activity - likely to result in sailboat, kayak, paddleboat and jet ski rentals, maybe parachute rides and perhaps a beachfront refreshment stand/tiki bar and maybe a dock or pier. The public would still own the land, gain tax base and lease revenue.
