Clearwater Patch readers shared their excitement and interest in Clearwater Marine Aquarium officials' plans to redevelop City Hall as a main attraction featuring Winter the dolphin.

The $160 million plan would need Clearwater voter approval. Aquarium officials hope to get the project voted on in the November 2014 election.

Before that, city leaders will share their thoughts on the plan during a City Council work session meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 5, at City Hall.

Here is what some Clearwater Patch readers had to say:

Michael H.: "Looks like it might be just the kind of development downtown needs to spur economic development"

Ed Woods: "Clearwater is such a great place to live."

Sheila Cole: "City has looked for many years to replace the old City Hall, well here it is on a platter. Just too bad it couldn't have been done when the MSB was built. Perhaps now in the Frank Crum building?"
