The Wayzata City Council unanimously passed its lakefront development plan Tuesday night.

The 10-year plan would dramatically alter Wayzata's lakefront property.

The plan aims to boost tourism and lake access for pedestrians, bikers and boaters by adding docks, a pier and a lake walk.

According to the plans, the lake walk would begin at the west end of Shaver Park.

In previous reports KSTP spoke with Terri Humi who sits on the Lake Effect Wayzata committee as the planning process was underway. She said people overwhelmingly want more boat docks and possibly a pier over the water similar to the Santa Monica Pier in California only smaller in scale.

The cost of the project will be paid for by private developers, municipal funds, grants, partnerships and other agencies. It costs between $10 million and $30 million dollars. Learn more about the plan and costs here.
