Water Park, Hotel Complex Under Fire In New Berlin

City Hall in New Berlin is moving forward with approvals for a hotel and water park complex, but a lawsuit is challenging the project.

And a New Berlin blogger is not happy about the project or the process that the city has followed to approve it.

It's important to remember that at the grassroots, sometimes the labels "conservative" and "liberal" lose some of their meaning.

New Berlin is seeking a diversion of water from Lake Michigan to the very portion of the city in which the hotel and water park are to be built, raising questions about the ultimate usage of Great Lakes water.

Many conservationists have lined up against the diversion application.

Apparently, some conservatives are against the hotel and water park, too - - perhaps there is some overlap in this case between conservatives and conservationists?
