One of the things I hear people ask regularly as I go around neighborhoods is "Why doesn't Lakeville have ____?" -- fill in the blank with:
- Panda Express
- Home Depot
- more nice sit-down restaurants
- more options for shopping
The population of Lakeville is about the same as that of Burnsville and Eagan, and a bit bigger than Apple Valley -- and yet those cities have far more variety and options for restaurants and shopping than we do here in Lakeville. We need to look for ways to encourage these businesses to come to Lakeville.
