Guy Fischer, economic development coordinator for Becker County, talks about potential routes for the Heartland Trail. A design team met Friday morning in Lake Park's City Center to talk about the city and design options for some of the town's historic buildings and ways to bring in more tourists to the area. The group spent Friday learning about Lake Park and Saturday actually laying out designs and putting some of their ideas on paper. Photo by - Brian Basham
