To the editor:
The Eagan City Council and mayor acquired Cedarvale Shopping Center in 2008, tore it down, forced adjacent business and restaurants to move. Lawsuits followed with unknown tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees incurred by the city and the businesses. Finally, a settlement is reached. Now the city of Eagan has approved the building of a shopping center on the vacant land and are hoping that adjacent businesses and restaurants will follow. Well done, Eagan council, well done.
