"Lake Geneva does not need to become like Wisconsin Dells in order to thrive"...It doesn't need to become like Wisconsin Dells, but it does need to offer NEW tourist attractions, or Lake Geneva will dry up. Lake Geneva has already become kind of stale. Don't get me wrong, I was born and raised in the area, and I love coming back to visit - but coming from someone who has lived outside of the Wisconsin/Chicagoland area for some time, there really isn't that much to do when compared against other vacation destinations. Like it or not, Lake Geneva thrives on tourism. If there are no new attractions, you can expect things to get a whole lot worse! Maybe this particular project didn't please locals, but the mindset of continually prohibiting any development in the Lake Geneva area will be detrimental to the area's future.
