To the editor:

I read in the Carver County News on Thursday, Aug. 23, that the reconstruction of the Crow River crossing bridge in Watertown would require reconstruction of the intersection at Lewis Avenue and Territorial Street, and the best solution would be a roundabout. A roundabout would likely force the removal of the NAPA store.

A simple solution would be to provide an incentive to the owners of NAPA to move to the newly acquired Motzko property which is on Highway 25 next to the Highland Park baseball field.

This would save an important and needed business in Watertown, a business that would pay taxes and provide jobs. This seems more important to me than the Mayor and City Council’s desire to have more parkland.
