ALBERT LEA, Minn. -

At the Albert Lea City Council meeting, they discussed the Blazing Star Landing and Community Center Project.

The point is to add more private developments like retailers, a hotel, apartments and a community center.

City Council member Larry Baker talks about why they just hope to get moving soon.

"It's time for us to take this next step," Baker said. "It's a big step but I think it's an important step for the city for the simple reason. It just keeps our momentum going forward. It would be another attraction to attract businesses, people, and tourists.

City Council wil meet again on June 10th to discuss whether or not they will support a 20 million dollar bonding bill for the development.
