Lake Minnetonka communities want scenic byway

WAYZATA, Minn. (AP) — Representatives from 14 communities around Lake Minnetonka will meet with state officials this month to talk about designating roads around the lake as a scenic byway.

Wayzata Mayor Ken Willcox says a scenic byway and signage will be an opportunity to market the area and one of the state's most popular lakes. The scenic byway is part of a broader effort to lure boaters and visitors into the lake communities by selling the area as a destination.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1jpWF8Q ) says the 41-mile scenic byway wouldn't require any construction, just signage to guide visitors along the roads around the 125-mile shoreline.

Minnesota has 21 scenic byways, including the North Shore Scenic Byway which follows Lake Superior up to Split Rock Lighthouse, state parks and other northern Minnesota sites.
