What about all the people sliding off Hammer road; from the football field going east past the high school and beyond?
They probably should have just left it alone; and left that service road in there, that seemed to be adequate and do the trick.
Perhaps someone was on a government funded fact finding mission some place; and saw some urban sprawl traffic control mechanism design that caught their eye. And they want to duplicate that.
So Albert Lea can be like the big guys; or something.
Although according to the local GOP contingent that went to this redistricting session; Albert Lea is like Blue Earth.
A large contingent of Albert Lea residents spoke in favor of ending a four-decade marriage of that city and Austin in a single Senate district. Several said Albert Lea has less in common with Austin than it does with rural areas to the west, with some specifically mentioning Blue Earth and southern Waseca and Blue Earth counties.http://www.bluestemprairie.com/bluestemprairie/2011/10/a-special-man-grandpa-rich-goes-to-special-redistricting-panel-with-family-and-friends.htm
So they wanna grow Albert Lea; but not too big I guess.
Such conflicting messages. lol
